What Is Groundwork?

“Groundwork (now Snap! Spend) is a financial and spend management technology for groups and teams with built-in online payments, enabling families to pay dues electronically into the program’s Groundwork account. Groundwork also gives programs the ability to budget and track expenses to provide families, administrators, and others with transparency into how the team’s money is being spent.”


Groundwork is a financial and spend management technology that gives teams and groups everything they need to manage money with ease and transparency.

Simply put, Groundwork is the team’s or group’s bank account. Programs can receive payments and make deposits in the account and can spend from it directly using a Groundwork debit card.
