Like it or not, sports cost money to participate in. And with the Month of Giving just around the corner, we wanted to share five ideas for fundraising your youth sports team or club could participate in this holiday season, to help give the gift of sports.
Hosting a holiday bake sale is a festive way to help raise money during the holidays. Create holiday cookie boxes for purchase or bake and sell festive pies. Both options are sure to be a hit during the busy holiday season.
Everyone loves a night out with good food and friends. So why not make it a fundraising event? By partnering with a local restaurant or food truck, you can do both. Have a portion of the sales from the restaurant or food truck go towards your fundraiser; it’s a win for the restaurant/food truck receiving exposure, a win for your team with money raised, and everyone can have a good time connecting with each other. Since it’s the holiday season, make it a festive holiday party!
If your sports club or team is fundraising for scholarship funds or financial hardship funds for players, the holidays are a great time to put together a donation program. In lieu of gifts, ask for donations towards your scholarship fund in the spirit of the holidays.
Get your community together for a baseball/softball/kickball home run derby. Participants can collect pledges towards the number of home runs they score during the event. As a bonus, get a local food truck to come to the event and have a portion of the sales go towards your fundraiser for added donations.
