There are a variety of easy ideas you can use for high school or middle school football fundraising. Fundraising may sounds like a frustrating process, but the fact is that it can actually be quite a bit of fun when approached in the correct manner. The following are just a few popular football fundraising ideas, all of which are utilized by schools and athletes throughout the country, and have been proven to be effective.
Coupon Book Fundraising
One of the most popular types of fundraising for any school sport is coupon book fundraising. Coupon books can not only be customized for your team, but will help to support businesses in the local economy as well. Those who shop locally on a regular basis will jump at the chance to purchase a coupon book, making it a win-win situation for everyone involved.
Candy Bar Fundraising
Anyone who has played an organized sport has likely sold candy bars as a fundraising tool at one point in their life or another. This is a great way to raise funds, as the money can actually add up quite a bit over time. After all, there’s no better way to inject a little nostalgia into your life than selling candy bars door-to-door. Perhaps the best reason to sell candy as a fundraising tool is that the upfront costs to do so are typically quite low.
Car Wash Fundraising
If you drive around on a regular basis, there’s a good chance you’ve seen fundraising car washes on the side of the street before. Running a makeshift car wash is not only a great way to raise money, but also can actually be quite a bit of fun as well. Be sure to try to work with someone who has run a car wash fundraiser in the past in order to ensure that you’re pricing the services correctly.
