About Us

Our Mission

Through youth education and empowerment, The Side-Out Foundation unifies the volleyball community to drive change in the way that breast cancer is treated.

The Side-Out Foundation
 (Side-Out) was established in 2004 to unite volleyball players and coaches and to have them work toward the common goal of furthering breast cancer awareness, education and patient services. Side-Out supports teams nationwide in their volleyball tournaments, clinics and other fundraising efforts. We contribute the funds to organizations that serve breast cancer patients, whether it be in the form of research, medical services or patient support.

The term side-out refers to a situation in volleyball when one team wins a point while its opponent is serving, thereby regaining serve or control of play. It is hoped that this Side-Out will do the same for breast cancer patients, providing them with the support, education and best available treatments to regain control of their lives.

About This Shop

After many years of outsourcing our merchandise to vendors, Side-Out has decided to take over the customer support for our consituents.  Our goal is to provide our supporters with great service, great pricing, and insure that 100% of any profits made will go to our mission.  Our manufacturer is a fantastic company called Sundog Productions.  They are a local company to us and are committed to not only printing and designing terrific garments, but they are equally as committed to making sure you get your product in time for your event.

Our New and Improved Model 

With our new merchandise model for Shop Dig Pink, every time that you make a purchase on the website you are making a donation to help fund metastatic breast cancer research. This new system that we are excited to present to you allows for more dollars spent at the Shop Dig Pink store to go towards cutting-edge research while also making the ordering process easier on you.

Because you are now instantly donating money when you make a purchase, you have the option to raise the price of the shirts if you are selling them at your fundraising event. Even if you decide to not bump the price of your shirts for your event, it’s okay because you have already donated 100% of the profits from your purchase!


Many teams like to sell Shop Dig Pink merchandise at their event. Buying in bulk will lower the individual shirt cost so that you can sell the shirts at whatever price you would like. Teams often buy the shirts from us, up-sell the shirts at their event, and then send the profits from their event with their school's campaign donation. It's a great way to give more to the cause!

Bulk Discounts

We also have bulk discounts available for qualifying orders up to 40%. You can find out what orders qualify here. By purchasing in bulk, you have the option to sell the shirts at your event for a lower cost. If you have any other questions about applying discounts to your order for a Dig Pink® event, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 877-344-7465, Extension 116.

High Quality Garments

The quality of the garments we provide is very important to us. We want you to have beautiful designs and products that will last forever and that you will be thrilled to show off to your players, coaches, teammates, or friends. While the increase in quality does cause a small rise in price, the prices listed are still lower than other products of the same top-notch quality and allow for a larger portion of the order to benefit cutting-edge breast cancer research. All of our shirts and designs are made in the USA, including our colorful tie-dye designs which are all done by hand!


If your organization has successfully raised money for The Side-Out Foundation on a year to year basis and you have concerns about our new model, please feel free to contact us at 877-344-7465, Extension 116.

We appreciate your patience as we move forward to better benefit our cause and maximize the dollars raised to fight breast cancer. We are grateful for your support of The Side-Out Foundation and are excited about this new chapter Shop Dig Pink. We are really looking forward to your continued efforts to raise money for a great cause through your Dig Pink® initiatives and are thrilled to have you on board as the Side-Out Foundation continues its mission of metastatic breast cancer awareness.
