Getting Your Softball Fundraisers Organized the Right Way

If you are setting out on the task to offset some of your softball team’s costs, obviously softball fundraisers are a clear winner.

The problem is, if you don’t have a lot of experience with organizing a fundraising effort, the idea of having all that responsibility can be a little bit overwhelming. After all, the team is looking to you to help solve their financial problems, right?

You want to make the best of this opportunity, and you want to show them that you can come through with the goods.

Softball fundraising is really not as difficult as you think, and with a few good pointers, you’ll be on your way to a successful fundraiser in no time.

Step one is to assess your needs. Be as specific as possible. “We need lots of money” is not nearly good enough. Sit down with coaches and administrators and work out exactly how much it costs to run the team, and how much of that the fundraiser is expected to cover. Knowing exactly where your target is can be the most important factor in making sure that you hit it, so if you want your softball fundraisers to start out right, get your expectations as accurately as possible.

Step two is choosing the right fundraising ideas to make your goals a reality. No matter how much you’re looking to raise or how many people you have to raise it, we have helped thousands of teams hold successful softball fundraisers that were tailored for them. Have a look through our most popular fundraising ideas for sports teams – we know you’ll find something there that interests you.

The hardest part can be narrowing down all the great choices!

If you have any further questions or concerns about running the best softball fundraisers, contact your fundraising consultant, who can give you all the advice you need and more.
