Consider it the necessary evil. No, I am not talking about going to the dentist. The topic being discussed is fundraising. Many leagues would not be able to survive if it weren't for the occasional, okay, frequent fundraiser!
Little leagues are a great way for children to spend their time. By playing sports, kids are able to stay active and learn many skills such as sportsmanship and physical fitness. As mentioned, though, this would not be possible without fundraising. The fees that the parents pay for their child to participate generally aren’t enough to cover the day-to-day expenses of the league. Therefore, league fundraising comes into play.
Fundraising within a league, whether it is a sports league or a math league, is something that needs to happen in order for the organization to survive. There are many things that take place behind the scenes that require additional money from time to time. Thank goodness there are many different ideas for fundraising within a league.
Some of these ideas include selling candy or discount cards. Candy is one of the top fundraisers for organizations such as little leagues; however, it is not always the most profitable fundraiser. Discount cards, on the other hand, such as the Domino's pizza card, give the organization the ability to make 90% profit. If you are going to do a fundraiser, why not do something that is going to make you the most money.
