This tournament is a fundraiser for the STOMP Out Bullying organization, which focuses on reducing and preventing all forms of bullying. The organization teaches effective responses to bullying and educates children and teens how to respond in school and online to peers. It provides help for those in need, raises awareness, provides mentoring programs in schools, creates public service announcements by noted celebrities, and social media campaigns. It also educates parents how to keep their children safe and responsible while online. STOMP Out Bullying is a leading national organization for kids and teens.

Participants in this youth fundraiser are encouraged (but not required) to seek sponsors to help raise money for this worthy cause. Pre-registrants will receive forms, which will allow sponsors to pledge any amount per touch scored. At the conclusion of the competition, sponsors will be notified of their pledged amount and a link for their online donation. Funds raised will benefit at-risk students, the organization's Help-Chat Line, its in-school education, its public awareness and education program, a dedicated web site, creation of its brochures, and peer mentoring programs in schools.

In addition, a portion of tournament fees above expenses will go directly to Stomp Out Bullying.
