With the right attitude and lots of enthusiasm, your youth football fundraiser can certainly be great fun. It may start out seeming like it’s nothing but a hassle, simply because your team is counting on your to ensure they have enough money to buy the things they need. And joining the youth football team is not exactly cheap, as I’m sure you already know. There are uniforms to buy, equipment to replace… not to mention all the traveling associated with league games, which doesn’t come for free. This can put a lot of pressure on you when you’re organizing a youth football fundraiser.
Really, though, coming up with a successful youth football fundraising idea is not as hard as you might imagine. There is certainly some planning involved and you will have to get your hands dirty in the process, but once you get everything organized and under control, your youth football fundraiser will start moving with its own momentum. There are, however, some important things you need to consider first.
When you’re organizing your youth football fundraiser, you’ll want to consider your sales team, which can be just the players, or the players and their parents, or maybe even other supporting groups. You also need to think about your intended customer base. In the case of your youth football fundraiser, the customer base may turn out to be the families of the players, students at their school, or perhaps the larger community as well. When you choose a fundraiser that takes these things into account, you’re much more likely to find success.
Youth football fundraisers have a specific advantage because you are using kids as part of your sales team, and of course, people are always sympathetic to any cause involving children.
