Exciting Youth Football Fundraising Ideas

Youth Sports Fundraising Ideas

If you are preparing to organize a fundraising effort for your youth football team, you may find yourself lacking good youth football fundraising ideas. This is not a problem, as we have a huge selection of fundraisers that you can choose from, and you’re bound to find one or probably many that will suit your group.

If you can commit to just a small amount of research, then you are certain to find the best fundraising ideas before you know it. The best idea is to get started by thinking about your fundraising team. Who exactly will be out there doing the work? If the kids on the football team are particularly young, you need to keep in mind that some of them may not be old enough to go out fundraising on their own, and for the ones who are old enough, this may be their first experience with fundraising.

This means that the parents will have to be involved, which in turn means that your customers will probably be a lot different than if the kids are going to be out there selling for themselves. Being able to assess these differences ahead of time can really help you narrow down what sort of youth football fundraising ideas you should consider.

With kids, for example, snack-based youth football fundraising ideas are pretty much a no-brainer. Candy fundraisers, lollipop fundraisers, and cookie dough fundraisers are all winning ideas, and even if the parents want to go with something a little more nutritious, there’s always Welch’s Fruit Snacks.

If the parents are going to be doing most football fundraiser, or at least helping out in a significant way, then you may want to get something that appeals more to all ages – pizza cards can be a great idea, and they can also give a great profit boost to fundraising teams that are smaller than average.

Bag Garden Fundraiser

Our NEW Bag Garden Fundraiser is a terrific way to raise money AND do it in the most earth-friendly fashion possible. It’s a great selection of herbs, vegetables, and flowers to attract pollinating insects.  Available year-round we offer high-profit potential, free brochures, and order forms, and you can qualify for free shipping.

What You Should Know

Our Bag Garden Fundraisers are like candle fundraisers. Your profit percentage is not affected by the number of orders you take. You get 50% profit or half the selling price for every item you sell. That means smaller groups make the same profits for selling bag gardens as larger groups. If you sell less than 150 bag garden items, though, there is a $65 shipping fee which will affect your total profit. Orders of 150 or more bag garden orders will qualify you for free shipping.
