The trick is going through our easy cheerleading fundraising ideas and picking the best option for your cheerleaders.
Are you in charge of choosing a Cheerleading Fundraising Idea?
Easy Fundraising Ideas helps thousands of groups raise millions of dollars every single year. Some of the most successful groups are cheerleaders holding cheerleading fundraisers. Our goal is to help you choose the best fundraising idea for your group.
The cost for most cheerleading and dance programs is rising ever year and many of those programs have turned to fundraising to help cover things like coaching fees, uniforms, camps, competitions, etc.. The costs vary depending on the level of cheer you participate in. But the costs can easily overwhelm even the wealthiest families.
The Best Cheerleading Fundraisers
The good news is that there are tons of great cheerleading fundraising ideas. The better news is that cheerleaders are by nature very outgoing and therefore usually very good sales people.
At the top of this page we briefly offer 8 different product fundraisers for you to consider. They are all tried and proven to earn money by cheer squads all over the country.
But there are a few things you can do to further insure the success of any fundraiser you choose.
Before you even get started make a list of the things you feel like you need to raise money for. Make sure your cheerleaders would agree that the end use of the money is motivation enough for them to work hard. There are lots of needs to cover so identifying things your squad will relate to should be easy.
Once you know why you are raising money you should calculate how much money you need to raise. Again we urge you to be specific. Come up with a number that clearly covers your needs and share that number with your cheerleaders. Let them know the goal and set deadlines for meeting the goal.
Then and only then decide which fundraiser you feel would be the best to reach your financial goals in your predetermined time frame. Great squads will meet and brainstorm the fundraising ideas you are considering. Have an open mind and list to your cheerleaders. After all they will be the ones that will sell. You want them on board because the best outcome would be to raise the money you need with a single fundraiser.
You might want to do a little research to see what other groups might be fundraising when you are. If you know the football team will be selling coffee you probably don't want to sell coffee as well.
