Your 2011 Football Fundraising Guide from

A football fundraiser can certainly be rewarding and profitable if you have the right attitude and lots of enthusiasm. While it may seem like an uphill battle from the outset, fundraising can be an easy way to raise funds for all the things a football team needs. Items like uniforms and equipment are not cheap, and your team is counting on you to organize a success fundraiser to help offset the costs involved.

A common misconception is that coming up with a successful football fundraising idea is very difficult; this cannot be further from the truth. While there is certainly a need to plan accordingly, a fundraiser can run smoothly and efficiently with very little effort involved. And once the fundraiser begins to pick up steam you will be amazed at how fast things get off the ground.

One of the first things you need to consider is your sales team, are they the players or the players and their parents? Where will you conduct the majority of your fundraising, school, work, the local mall? Who will your potential buyers be and what would they be interested in? Selling restaurant discount cards at an elementary school may not work as well as cookie dough or scratch cards. Conversely selling cookie dough may be impractical in a mall where a discount card sale may be better suited.
