Baseball Fundraising Suggestions and Tips
There are lots of baseball oriented groups that need to raise money which means there needs to be a lot of thought before choosing the best product to sell or event to hold.
Here's a breakdown of some of the common groups or individuals and some advice on the best ways to proceed:
Leagues: We have helped with league wide fundraisers throughout the United States and far and away there are two dominant schools of thought on products. Half the large organizations choose to sell candy. They purchase enough candy of that each player needs to sell a case of candy. That works well for most leagues and families understand that they will be buying a case of candy during registration and they can choose to sell it or eat it.
The other product leagues gravitate towards is frozen cookie dough. There are two things about cookie that that make it popular. The first is that most people will buy a couple of tubs of cookie dough and it is easy to sell. Additionally there is no need to purchase or obligate yourself to any product in advance of your sale. The players pre sell using free brochures and at the end of the sale you purchase the products that have already been sold.
Teams: If you're raising money for a team the list of options is virtually unlimited. Medium sized groups such as teams can sell any product and typically meet the minimum order requirements. So if you don't want to lay out money you can choose any of the no upfront cost brochure fundraisers. Of course lots of teams still opt for candy or lollipops to raise money.
Individual Players: If you are an individual player needing to raise some money the odds are good that you should choose one of the direct sale items like candy or even try something like scratch off fundraising cards. That means you will need a little money to purchase a product you can sell. Look for items with smaller minimums or higher profits like fundraising cards.
Baseball fundraisers are commonplace whether it's a single team raising money or league wide baseball fundraising as part of registration. The key is finding the right baseball team fundraiser for your group.
