Developing Football Fundraising Ideas

If you think it’s time for all the students at the school to band together and do something good for a worthy cause, you might have considered holding a fundraising event to raise money for the school. There are many different departments that could use some extra funding, since many are left in the dark when the school’s budget gets eaten up by other things.

One group in particular that often needs extra funding is the school football team. Whether it’s for new football gear and clothing, or its for general upkeep to the school football field, football fundraising ideas can be a great solution to your financial worries.

So how do you find the best football fundraising ideas?

It might help to recruit some extra people to your cause before you get started. That way, you will be able to pass a few ideas around before settling on the best one. When making your choice, you want to be sure that your fundraiser will be something that everybody at the school will want to get behind. If you just pick something that the football team can enjoy, then it is likely that your event won’t be very successful.

One way to give everybody at the school something fun and enjoyable is by selling fundraising products. The students at your school will be used to the same regular food that they see in the school cafeteria each day of the week.

So why not give them some tasty products at your football fundraiser to change things up. Our $1 Chocolate Fundraiser is a great option for students with a sweet tooth, or you might like to go with our Hershey Fundraising Candy. These products are very easy to get started with, making your next football fundraising ideas a walk in the park.

Are You Ready for Some Football (Fundraising)?

In this country, there is a wonderful relationship between schools and athletics. This is especially true of football. Football teams, both in high schools and universities, often provide the face of school spirit and a offers a common gathering space for the educational community to relax and enjoy themselves.

But, a football program is expensive to operate, and especially at the high school level, a significant fundraising effort is needed to provide essentials like uniforms, travel expenses, practice equipment, and assessment tools like video cameras and computers.

To address these specific needs, most schools have developed an active “Boosters” club, which is made up of people who have a strong love of football and school and who have committed themselves to making sure their team has what it needs to keep winning.

Last year WCVD Newschannel 5 in Boston published a report entitled “Student Athletes Forced To Pay To Play”, in which they highlighted a difficult situation at Hamilton Wenham Regional High School. Due to a serious budget shortfall in this district, they have been forced to adopt a “pay for play” policy, in which individual players and their families have to come up with the money to pay for all the season’s expenses.

According to the report, “It costs $282 per student for cross-country, $398 for golf, $409 for girl’s soccer, $508 for field hockey and $969 for football.

“Football started at $1,400 per student, but was reduced through private fundraising and gate receipts to about $969 per student,” Athletic Director Don Doucette said.

Obviously, this is a situation that most schools would like to avoid. But, that means a serious effort at raising large amounts of money must be made. And, it must be more than a few individual and separate fundraisers throughout the season. Football fundraising should be a sustained, coordinated, and multi-pronged attack that is carried out year round. The alternative to this aggressive approach is unfortunately seen in the fee structure above. continue reading
