Sports Fundraising Ideas :

Are you part of a sports team, or better yet are your kids in sports? If you said yes to either of these you have fundraised in one form or another at some point. Fundraising is such an integral part of being part of a sports team. New uniforms, equipment, and have to pay for their travel expenses. That being said, traditional fundraisers are a thing of the past. We have created a list of 10 easy and effective fundraising ideas for any sports team big or small. Sports Fundraising Ideas

Food Fair :

If you are looking to fundraise for your sports team try a food fair. Gather up all team parents and create a menu or write down a list of different food booths. You can either all pitch in and have a set menu for your fair or you can group up and tackle booths separately. Running a food fair will require planning and shopping. Once you have your menu set, make sure to promote your event on social media such as Facebook , Instagram , and Twitter. Invite all your friends, family, and neighbors in support of your food fair. This is a great option and it is also a way of providing a product in return for donations to your cause. Everyone will leave happy and full knowing they helped support something greater than themselves. The only downfall, the clean up afterwards . Food Fair

Sports Ball Painting :

This idea is super cute and super DIY. This is a great option for anyone who is creative and loves to make their own crafts.

Restaurant Night:

Hosting a restaurant night can be a great option for fundraising especially if everyone in your immediate sports community participates and gets involved.

In just one night, you can raise hundreds of dollars for your team. The only drawback is actually getting people to participate and purchase enough food or drinks to make a sizeable donation towards your cause. Restaurant Night

Rent an Athlete for a Day :

This option is sort of a silly one. Yet, it can still help you raise funds to reach your goal. Offer your services to your friends, family and neighbors . You can charge an hourly rate to rent you for your services. For example: $20 an hour. You can offer services like, running errands, baby-sitting, watering or mowing the lawn, yard cleanup, helping with moving, and just about anything else you can think of. Not only are you providing a service in return for a donation , you are also helping others and doing good while feeling good about yourself earning funds for your team. Rent an Athlete for a Day
