In essence, most sports fundraising ideas and fundraising ideas in general are cheap and cost effective. It is imperative for a sports fundraiser not to use too much money since the purpose of the activity is to collect funds for the sports team. How can the team raise funds if they re going to spend significant amount of money on the preparation and organization of the sports fundraising event? However, there are times when the team has to spend money in order to make the fundraiser work. If the team plans to sell team items and memorabilia, they need to have funds for the production unless they plan to make people pre order the items. Pre ordering is an efficient way to avoid necessary expenses, but it also lessens the encouragement of team spirit and participation from supporters and donors. Holding a sports competition is also cost effective sports fundraising idea, but it requires manpower, extensive preparation and promotions, and money for the prize if the team fails to find a sponsor.

Cost Effective Sports Fundraisers

So in order for a sports team fundraiser not to lose money on the endeavor, the team should use cost effective sports fundraising ideas. These ideas are designed so the team need not spend needlessly on the sports fundraising effort. After all, the sports fundraising effort is only successful if the revenue exceeds the cost of the endeavor significantly.

Many teams hold sponsorship sports fundraising activities. In this activity, the team encourages donors to sponsor a member of the sporting team. The sponsorship will include every cost that the member will require for a pre specified time period, from uniform to training costs. This is easier than looking for a team sponsor, since sponsoring a single member is obviously cheaper than sponsoring a whole team. The team can hold an exhibition game where the potential donors are invited. Then, the donors are encouraged to sponsor a team member. Even if every team member does not receive a sponsorship, the cost of the team expenses will decrease if a number of members do get sponsors. The exhibition game is important in this endeavor so the potential donors will be able to see the said team in action, so they can see with their own eyes the team they will be helping. This establishes the connection between the team and the sponsor, and this connection can be used once the team holds another sports fundraising activity.

Celebrities and Athletes

Asking for help from celebrities can be time consuming, but it also a cost effective sports team fundraising idea mainly because people are easily enticed when someone familiar (a celebrity, a known athlete) is involved in the activity. For example, a particular athlete or celebrity can serve as a pitcher or a goalie on a baseball or soccer related event. Many celebrities and popular personalities are willing to give their time for no cost at all. And while the effort here lies on finding willing personalities, the return for this type of sport fundraiser will be very significant.

So try out one of these smart fundraising ideas and watch your sports team s budget increase.
