As we head into a new school year, what better way to create a community than getting students involved! Fundraisers are a great way to bring the community together all while funding the athletics program at your school. Not only are fundraisers fun for kids, they get kids working together for a common cause and provides social interactions which we sorely missed over the past year.
There are many options to help these programs work for you. Local businesses are always looking for ways to get involved in their community. Reach out to them for support or involvement. They can provide branded products for raffles, give always, or items for purchase to build your programs budget.
Booster clubs have the outreach to parents to keep them involved and help with funding programs that generate revenue for your sporting programs. These groups are experienced and knowledgeable in setting up programs like these.
Popular Items for School Fundraisers
Selling items like apparel is the most strait forward method of fundraising for schools. A portion of all sales goes to the sports team/club and those who are contributing money get a product in the process.
T-shirts, sweat shirts and hoodies are all popular apparel that everyone can use. Emblazoned with your school logo and school pride phrases, apparel brings your branding anywhere your community exists. Parents, relatives and siblings all enjoy these items making them an excellent product for fundraising efforts. Want them personalized with their name on the back? Not problem, we can do that also.
Popular locations for School Fundraisers
Sporting events: Sporting events are the prime location for the sale of promotional products for fundraisers. Pom-Poms, noisemakers and miniature balls are a big hit at every game. This is also the ideal time for apparel items as well. During the outdoor winter/early spring weather, gloves, hats and scarves are a big hit.
Pep Rally: Get your local businesses involved by asking to donate products to build gift baskets raffled off at a rally. The students and parents can then purchase tickets for the raffle to win differing levels of gift baskets. Include some giveaways for your students, possibly funded by your local businesses to up your game by keeping the students involved and motivated to participate.
In addition to raising money and creating a community, fundraisers can provide incentives for those who raise the most. Offering awards or gifts for the students that have a high success rate for selling the most products during a fundraiser is always welcomed. Providing incentives helps the bottom line of your program.
