The Steps for Organizing Football Fundraisers

Organizing football fundraisers is often an eye-opening experience for first-timers. It’s more than just the selling aspect; there’s all the planning that leads up to the selling, and football fundraisers can often be quite large and complicated. This means that organization is important, so you’ll want to start out by building your football fundraisers from the ground up and not leaving any steps out. Once you get everything laid out and organized, the executing of a football fundraiser is really not that difficult.

The first part of organizing football fundraisers is to make sure you understand exactly what your aims are, and what sort of effort you will have to make to achieve them. This may sound like a nebulous task, but as soon as you start writing down numbers it will all start to solidify and make sense. Calculate how much money you need to make from football fundraisers, check and double-check those numbers, and then make a master list of everyone that will be involved in the sales. From there you can figure out exactly how much each person in your group will be responsible for, and this can help you see clearly what kind of football fundraisers you need to be looking at.<

Finding appropriate football fundraising ideas for your group is the next step, and there’s no one right way to go about this. Just keep your goals and your group in mind and start looking through our pages of football fundraisers. If you have a large group, you could go with something like a pretzel fundraiser. If you have a smaller group and are worried about profit levels, perhaps something like scratch cards would work better for you as a football fundraiser.

Football fundraisers can be a lot of fun if you get the hard work out of the way first. Once you have your numbers worked out and your fundraiser has chosen, just trust that you have done your work well, and enjoy the satisfaction that comes from running football fundraisers that really make a difference for the team.

Lips Lollipops Image

Want a new product to increase your lollipop fundraising sales? Consider our Lip Lollipops. They sell well any time of the year but do especially well around Valentine’s Day. There is only a 1 case minimum and you will make 50% profit on every lollipop you sell.

What You Should Know

Yummy Lips Lollipops and all of our lollipop fundraisers offer the same profit regardless of the number of cases that you purchase. You will sell the lollipops for two times the cost of the lollipops. In other words, you will double your investment no matter how many cases you purchase.

Volleyball scratch card

If you play volleyball, you will probably be involved with a volleyball tournament fundraiser. Tournaments are one of the largest expenses for volleyball teams. Scratch card fundraisers give each player the opportunity to raise $100 for the team by simply getting a single card filled in. Fundraising volleyball ideas do not get any easier than this.

What You Should Know

Here is an example of the coupon page you give to the people as a “Thank You” for participating. You can also create a custom coupon hand out with your town’s unique businesses.

As you can see from the profit chart below the lowest profit percentage you will make from using scratch cards for fundraisers is 70%. There are, however, price breaks that can increase your profit percentage. The more cards you purchase the higher your profit potential for each card. The profits and profit percentages show are based on successfully having all 50 dots scratched off on your scratch card:
