Keep The "˜Fun' In Fundraising
Whether you're new and not quite sure where to start, or you're a seasoned professional looking for some fresh ideas, it's important to remember that fundraising can be fun! Here are some initial planning points to keep in mind, including tips for strategy, training and incentives, as well as fundraising ideas and advertising tips.
Camp and Summer Fundraising
Summer fundraising is an important part of a squad's budget that helps supply the team with camp gear and uniforms, but it can be a challenge for squads since there are no school-sponsored games or events to use as a fundraising platform. Instead, cheerleaders need to evaluate their neighborhood and think of innovative ways to reach their community, and convince them to support the squad. Sometimes the old fundraising ideas, like door-to-door sales, are suitable, but sometimes a team needs to get more inventive with their fundraising.
You can't win a competition if you can't afford to go! Fundraising is great for your team because not only can you raise money for new uniforms and competition expenses, but you are also getting the community involved and invested in your success. You can meet new people, ignite school pride and build a base of supporters that will continue to think of your team as their team. Here are some things to keep in mind when you are planning your competition fundraising, and some ideas to get you started.
How to Give Back to Your Community
Many fundraising activities rely on direct donations from members of your community. Not only are they your neighbors, they are also some of your biggest fans and supporters, and your team should make time each year to thank them for their hard work and encouragement. Here are a few ideas to help you launch your own community project, and some truly inspiring news story overviews of young people helping their communities.
