If you are just starting out learning everything there is to know about soccer fundraising, it’s possible you feel a bit overwhelmed by all the information out there. Soccer fundraising is more complex than it looks on the surface, and it does require some effort and organization on your part, but none of those things have to be difficult. You want to have the best soccer fundraising experience possible, and we can certainly help with that. Getting yourself informed is the first step, and after that, your momentum will carry you through.
Whenever it seems like the stresses and anxieties of soccer fundraising are getting to you, take a breath and reassure yourself. Soccer fundraising is not all that difficult, and it’s easier than a lot of other types of sales because people see buying items for soccer fundraising as helping a worthy cause. All you have to do is pick a soccer fundraising activity that will work well for your group, and then get the group excited about their soccer fundraising opportunities because the results of the fundraiser will affect them directly.
The biggest issue with soccer fundraising as far as the organization is concerned is matching up your group to the right fundraising activity. If you have a large enough group that you can go for one of the more traditional catalog fundraisers, that’s great, and you can make a lot of money if you can meet minimum orders to offset the shipping charges. But if you have a smaller group, it’s probably best to stick to something that has the highest profits, low or no minimums, and free shipping. Our scratch cards work well for many soccer fundraising teams because the minimums are so low and the profits can be as high as 90%, which is the highest of just about any soccer fundraising activity.
