25 Unique Youth Sports Fundraising Ideas
Tired of selling cookie dough and candy bars? Here are some unique and fun ideas for raising funds for your youth organizations.
1. Rent-a-kid. Set up opportunities to serve. Kids can clean, mow the yard, read to someone, or even babysit–whatever the buyer needs for an afternoon.
2. Auction. Get donated items from local businesses and auction off at a dinner, a dessert, or even a halftime of a sports event.
3. Shoot-a-thon, walk-a-thon, or hit-a-thon. Kids collect sponsors for every basket made, mile walked, or home run hit.
4. Professional photo sessions. Arrange for a professional photographer to come for a day or evening. Book time slots for families or individuals. Your organization earns a commission. Have your group reserve time slots with an online sign up on SignUpGenius.com, so everyone knows when their session will be. That way you can send important details, and each family can also receive an email or text reminder.
5. Website marketing. Does your youth sports team have a web page? Could you set up a cost-free blog to keep individuals up to date? If so, think about promoting advertising space to nearby vendors who may be interested (i.e. the neighborhood sports shop).
6. Pizza kits. Some pizza companies will provide the kits and the opportunity for your group to earn funds with each kit sold. The idea? Each kit will contain everything needed to make three pizzas for a great price, and your group earns about $5 on every kit sold.
7. Sell batteries. You can’t go wrong selling something everyone uses and needs!
8. Sports night out. Is there a local restaurant in town that would partner with your team for a sports night? A set percentage of the profits from that night will go back to your team. The local restaurant benefits from getting an influx of loyal players and fans that want to support their team.
9. Hold a clinic. Have a high school or college team put on a clinic for young players who will pay to attend. Have participants sign up and pay online to make registration check-in a breeze!
10. Create a calendar. Print a calendar with team photos and sell at games.
Organize a sports camp or clinic with an online sign up. SAMPLE
11. Be jeweled. Sell team jewelry at games or even find a vendor online that will offer fundraising options to earn back on each piece sold.
12. Coordinate a booth. Sell items at local basketball tournaments or big events, like water bottles, face-painting, sports drinks, etc. You can coordinate your rotating volunteer schedule via an online sign up, so parents or youth know when it’s their turn to help!
13. Marketing for local businesses. If your field is surrounded by chain link fence, sell billboard space to local businesses. Charge a set price for the entire year if it’s a multi-purpose field.
14. Make it personal. Type up a fundraising letter asking for donations. Give 10 to each player and ask that he fill out the address of a family member or friend, and write a personal note on each. Collect them and mail out with a return envelope.
15. Solicit community donations. Send letters to your local American Legions, Lions Club, Kiwanis, etc. They typically have money set aside to support community groups/organizations, and it never hurts to ask!
16. Ask for corporate sponsorships. Ask them to donate $250 and in return, they get their logo and link on the team website and a plaque at the end of the season.
Sell tickets, sponsorships, or fundraising items with online sign ups. FIND OUT MORE
17. Vendor outsourcing. Sell the right to concessions to a local coffee store on game day. Get Starbucks or another franchise to have a small stand at your event and give you a cut from the profits.
18. Local business partnerships. Ask a local sports store chain to give discounts to the players and give a percentage back to the league.
19. Money made in the shades. Sell custom sunglasses with your team’s color and logo.
20. Organize a talent competition. Hold a singing competition or talent show. Provide a small prize for the winner and sell tickets to raise money. Organize your talent and volunteers via SignUpGenius, so people can see who else is participating and man up!
21. Custom cookbook. Collect your community or team members’ favorite recipes and compile them into a cookbook. Sell it at a games, community events, and from your website.
22. Sell scratch-and-win cards. Buy scratch-off coupon booklets and when you approach someone to buy a booklet, scratch off the top cover to reveal the price. The purchaser receives the coupon booklet for that amount and your group receives part of the purchase price.
23. Host a tournament. Other teams will pay to play, plus you have concession stand profits to consider.
24. Paparazzi. Hire a roving photographer to take pictures in the stands of spectators or of players during a game. He hands out his card so they can go to his website and buy photos. Your team makes a cut.
25. Scrimmage. Have players invite supportive teachers, parents or community members to play against them. Each participant would have a fundraising goal to reach by selling tickets to the event or getting sponsors.
Youth sports fundraising needn’t be boring or monotonous. This season, change it up and go fun with your money-making efforts!

23 Fundraising Ideas for Sports and Teams to Raise More Money in 2021
Sports programs cost money. Between costs of traveling to tournaments and purchasing uniforms and equipment, the expenses can add up very quickly.
And whether you’re an athlete, a school, a community sports team, a parent, or a coach, you’re likely no stranger to this reality.
When the money is a little tight, that’s exactly where fundraising comes in!
Effective fundraising is an invaluable skill that can really make or break your sports team.
In this article we share 23 fundraising ideas for sports and teams. There is something for everyone, from individual athletes to bigger community sports teams.
Here are some of the best sports fundraising ideas:
1. Partner with local businesses
Look to your community and find small, local businesses to sponsor you or your team. Partnering with a local business is a win-win situation!
You raise funds for yourself or your team, and the local business gets involved with the community and gains some good PR.
Furthermore, business partnerships have a multi-channel potential.
For example, if your club has a decent following on Instagram, you can harness that. For example, you can partner with a business by giving them regular shout-outs on Instagram as part of their sponsorship.
Plus, partnerships don’t always have to be about cash. Business partners and sponsors could donate in-kind products or services that they would usually charge for.
2. Field day
You can rarely go wrong with a field day fundraiser, especially on a nice summer day. Invite your community members for a day of games, good food, and a lot of fun!
Think of a variety of games that you know your audience will enjoy. Some examples include like dodgeball, tug-of-war, obstacle courses, and treasure hunts.
Charge an entry fee to raise money for your team. To earn some extra cash, sell concessions! Lemonade, chilled watermelon, and ice cream are sure to be a hit on a hot summer day.
Pro tip: Consider offering prizes to top performers. Healthy competition is a great motivator for participation!
3. Coach challenge
The coach challenge can be a very effective fundraiser for sports teams of all sizes.
First, set an ambitious, yet achievable fundraising goal. If this goal is met, the coach agrees to do some outrageous activity.
Maybe that’s doing the chicken dance, shaving their head, dressing like an alien — there are plenty of possibilities.
The more outrageous and fun the challenge, the more motivated supporters will be to donate and reach the fundraising goal!
In this video, Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg shows off his hilarious breakdancing skills for the Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge.
4. Sponsor a sportsperson
A widely known principle in fundraising identifies the likelihood that we feel greater empathy, and an urge to help, in situations where tragedies are about a specific, identifiable individual, compared to situations where the victims are a larger, vaguer group of people (also known as identifiable victim effect).
Seek donors to sponsor a single sportsperson on the team instead of the whole team. It’s often easier for donors to relate to a single individual than a group.
5. Reach out to alumni
If you’re fundraising for a sports team, chances are you have worked with many athletes throughout the years.
Consider reaching out to these individuals via phone or email asking for financial support. Team sports often foster a strong sense of community and belonging, which means your alumni might be very keen to give back to the team that has given so much to them when they were younger.
Pro tip: Organize a wine and dine event with the alumni before a big game. Find a way to recognize your alumni. This will foster strong relationships and increase the chances that your alumni will choose to give.
6. Game day car wash
A simple and popular fundraiser, car washes are used by individuals and groups alike to raise funds for their cause.
You can organize a car wash as a stand alone event any time of the year. All you need are keen volunteers (your team members maybe), sponges, soap, water, and some good promotion!
Another option is to organize a car wash during a game day. The advantage of this is that you’ll already have a large audience coming to watch the game. All you need to do is set up signs around the car park and have volunteers collect small fees from those wanting their car washed.
Your volunteers will wash all the participating cars as their owners are watching the game. When the game is done, the owners will return to fresh and sparkly cars!
A fundraising classic, a walkathon is perfect for bringing together the wider community via an accessible active/sport activity.
While it’s true that walkathons can take a bit of planning, their fundraising potential is great!
Start planning your walkathon well in advance and go all in with the event promotion. Supporters register to participate in your walkathon and then collect pledges from people who will donate a certain amount per mile or kilometer walked.
Participants complete the walkathon, and your sports team receives the funds!
There are those jobs that everyone wishes someone else would do: mowing the grass, decluttering, gardening… And even if some people like doing them, everyone appreciates a break from tending to the garden or taking care of pets and children. To organize this fundraiser, advertise a “rent-a-team” initiative to your wider community.
Your team members can be hired to help with various tasks: gardening, decluttering, cleaning, childcare, and more, in exchange for a donation to the team.
To raise funds, set an affordable hourly fee. If some of your team members have other, special skills, put those on the list too (e.g. photography).
Make sure there’s an approved list of tasks/activities. For example, you don’t want someone to hire your team to clean very neglected properties or operate dangerous machinery. See if your team members’ families would be willing to share their cleaning supplies or get a sponsor to donate some so as to minimize costs.
9. “Junk” drive
Some people hold on to items that are worth some money because they don’t know what else to do with them. Others throw them away.
However, seemingly useless things like old phones, old computers, empty ink cartridges, and so on can be exchanged for money.
First, create a list of items you know you can exchange for money locally or nationally (do some research if you’re not familiar with the initiatives). Then, invite your community members to donate unwanted items.
Designate a drop-off spot and then get the word out about your fundraiser. Encourage team members, their families, and other community members to bring these items to the drop-off spot. This can be a very effective sports team fundraiser because you’re essentially asking for unwanted items and are potentially even doing your donors a favor by relieving them of needing to find a way to dispose of these items safely.
10. Push-up contest
Hold a push-up contest fundraiser that raises money by leveraging the human desire to win!
Find out who can (safely) do most push-ups in correct form. Or, you can also make it a push-up, pull-up, or sit-up contest.
You can also focus the contest on weightlifting, seeing who can safely lift the most weight by curling, deadlifting, or squatting. Make sure you have a spotter nearby in case you decide to do this one.
This fundraising idea is great for your sporty audience!
11. Restaurant or food truck partnership
This fundraising idea might be one of the easiest ones to organize. Contact a local restaurant or a food truck and discuss a partnership.
With a restaurant, you might agree to organize a dinner event at their location. You get to raise funds by receiving a percentage of the restaurant’s profits for the evening and the restaurant gains exposure and profit.
With food trucks, many of them will typically be happy to set up at game, especially if you anticipate a good crowd.
The key to this fundraiser is in promotion. Post eye-catching flyers around town and go big on social media. Design compelling visuals and pay to boost posts for local audiences.
12. Text-to-give campaign
The more donation options you give to your potential donors, the more likely it is that you’ll achieve your fundraising goal.
Add a text-to-give option to your donation methods.
First, choose a text-to-give software provider. Your provider will give you a unique phone number that donors will text that using the keyword chosen by your nonprofit.
Pro tip: Stay tuned with GiveForms updates. We’re releasing a text-to-give feature very soon!
13. Online donation form
You don’t always have to think of an “out-of-this-world” idea to raise funds for your team.
Sometimes, it takes only a straightforward ask and an online donation form. Online fundraising is very cost-efficient and has incredible fundraising potential.
Once you choose your online donation platform and set up an online donation form, you’ll be able to direct donors to it through a variety of methods: social media posts, direct mail, newsletters, etc.
To get informed and connect with others, new generations mostly head one place – online.
Therefore, a high-quality website will be vital to your fundraising success. Your website will be home to all your latest announcements and news. If you’re able to create a website that attracts many visitors, it becomes an asset for your club/team. You’ll be able to sell website space to businesses, who are always keen to get in front of as many people as possible.
GiveForms’ online donation forms facilitate a simple, intuitive giving experience for donors and can be easily managed by someone who isn’t tech-savvy.
14. Fitness classes
Fitness classes are a great sports team fundraiser because they capitalize on your team’s strength: the aptitude at sports and physical fitness.
Through fitness classes, your team members will put their formidable sports skills to good use.
Popular activities and subjects for fitness classes include:
Or any other sport your team is engaged in.
Partner with your local gym, park, or community center to find a suitable space for your fitness class or workshop.
There are plenty of ways in which to go about when organizing this fundraiser. For example, the class can be a one-off or part of a longer program.
Next comes the promotion. Get the word out to your network and start receiving those sign ups!
Charge a registration fee, then get started with raising funds!
15. Hang out with a celebrity
Here’s a sports fundraising idea with tons of potential! Bring your team together and brainstorm influential people in your sports that you could contact.
Make a list of several celebrities that fit the profile and then contact their public relations representatives to ask if they would be willing to attend your fundraiser.
You could hold an exclusive dinner or a chill hang out and have the celebrity speak about their career. You could even organize a sporting event of your own, such as a game or a tournament.
Reach out to local businesses too. Many will jump at the opportunity to sponsor an event with a celebrity guest.
Although it can seem like a long shot, this fundraiser is inexpensive to run! Furthermore, celebrities attract crowds, so you’re likely to raise more funds.
16. Healthy community potluck
A traditional fundraiser with a modern twist.
Being an athlete or part of a sports team, being active and healthy is a part of your lifestyle.
Therefore, organizing a community potluck where community members are encouraged to bring in healthy meals is very “on brand” for you.
Make a list of the dishes you’ll need, and let participants sign up to choose what to bring.
If several courses meal seems like too much to organize, scale back. A healthy dessert potluck or a smoothies and juices extravaganza will also be enticing.
17. Selling merchandise
Merchandise sales is another classic fundraiser for sports teams. And it can work wonderfully for teams of all sizes. Yet, for that to happen, merchandise items need to be selected carefully.
First of all, the merchandise needs to be attractive to your supporters and relevant to the sport. Secondly, it should be relevant to your geographic location and the time of the year. Finally, it should be priced so that it’s affordable to your average audience member, yet that you can still make profit.
You can sell a variety of items: t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, mugs, backpacks, pencils, notebooks, holiday cards, and more.
Pro tip: Nowadays, there are plenty of businesses out there that can handle the logistics for you, as long as you provide a design. Ask around in your community and see if there’s anyone who’s design-savvy and is willing to donate some of their time for a good cause.
18. Sports peer-to-peer fundraising
If possible, recruit your teamsters and their networks to raise money for your team by engaging in more long-term athletic fundraisers. This sports fundraising idea might be more appropriate for college sports teams.
Peer-to-peer fundraising is a great way to increase donations and reach out to a wider network, as it allows you access to people you wouldn’t otherwise reach.
Peer-to-peer fundraising lends itself to creativity, and you can really go the extra mile here, but some of the most popular peer-to-peer fundraisers include walking on foot from one town to another (or for a specific number of kilometers or miles), climbing a mountain, and biking across the country.
Your fundraisers can collect pledges and raise money for your team.
19. Silent auction
To organize a silent auction, which is an auction without an auctioneer present and where participants place their bids silently and anonymously, begin by procuring your silent auction items. To do this, you can ask local businesses to donate goods, services, or gift certificates.
Alternatively, you can ask each participant for a small donation and then build themed gift baskets.
There are plenty of interesting theme ideas. How about a pizza and movie night basket? A spa at home basket? A ‘couple’s night in’ basket? A crafts basket?
You can also procure other sport-related items and experiences to auction off:
- Signed sports gear and other memorabilia
- Rare baseball cards
- Private virtual sports lessons
- A chance to meet local sports celebrities on Zoom or Skype
- Virtual class passes (yoga, spin, gyms)
- Virtual private trainer for 6 months/1 year
- Opportunity to be a sportscaster for a day
The auction items that typically receive the most bid activity appeal to donors’ needs or interests, are well-priced, and are unique or special in some way.
Next, set aside time for people to bid. Each participant writes the amount they’re willing to pay for each item or basket.
Announce winning bids at the end.
20. Virtual yard sale
Spring is coming, which means many of us are starting to declutter and clean our homes.
This can be a great opportunity to raise some money for your sports team!
Invite your community members to donate items that they no longer use or need. Your audience gets to do a proper clean-out of their homes and garages, and you get to raise money for your club or team.
You could let your participants sell it online themselves on sites like Gumtree or set up a virtual marketplace for the whole team.
21. Zoom trivia night
One for the adults amongst your supporters, you can combine your trivia night with a virtual wine tasting.
This way, your supporters can enjoy a few glasses of wine or beer while raising some money for your sports team.
You can come up with your own quiz questions and then run the Trivia night on Zoom, or you can try out a quiz platform. Anything can be the theme, but a sports-related quiz might be the best option for you.
Kahoot, for example, hosts a large number of ready-made quizzes and allows you to make your own on a template too. Players (up to 10 with the free membership) download the app, input the game pin code and play the quiz.
To raise funds, charge each participant or a participating team a fee.
#GivingTuesday is a giving campaign that happens every year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday (on November 30 in 2021).
It kicks off the season of giving for nonprofits and generates goodwill and support for different causes, including sports teams.
Plugging into Giving Tuesday is a fantastic way to bring in more donations for your sports team, as you already have access to many resources (e.g. visuals, messaging, etc.) and will capitalize on the momentum of the campaign.
Come up with a simple fundraising campaign for Giving Tuesday and share about it on social media and in your e-newsletter.
23. Kick a negative habit
A fundraising promoting maintaining healthy habits is perfect for sports fundraising. Encourage your supporters to donate the money they would normally spend on coffee, soda, or sugary snacks.
Decide on the duration of the challenge and then share motivational messages on your social media accounts to keep inspiring the participants.
Your supporters can donate this money online, making this a perfect pandemic-friendly fundraiser.

Auction Donations From Pro Sports Teams
Another good way to get fundraising auction donations is to contact professional sports teams. Every pro sports team has a policy of supporting nonprofit organizations in their area by donating items that the groups can use to raise funds.
How To Get Fundraising Auction Donations From Pro Sports Teams
The good news is that this donation request is fairly easy to do and the donated items will add a lot of value to your silent auction. Here’s how to contact all the pro sports teams to request a donation.
Each league uses a standard approach for nonprofit in-kind donation requests from teams. Some teams also have favorite causes to which they’ll provide additional support.
Just use the link to the league’s website and follow the instructions below:
Major League Baseball (MLB) – Select your local team, click on “Community” tab, then select “Fundraising & Giving”, then select “In-Kind Donation Requests”.
National Basketball Association (NBA) – Select your local team, click on “Community” tab, then click on “Donation Requests”.
National Football League (NFL) – Pick your team from the logo list across the top, then click on the “Community” tab, then click on “Donations”, then select “Merchandise”.
National Hockey League (NHL) – Select your hockey team, click on “Community” tab, then click on “Donations”.
Most teams provide autographed photos, signed game jerseys, team posters, and other items. There is usually a limit of one donation request per year per nonprofit group. Given the popularity of professional sports memorabilia, having these type of items in your silent auction can help increase attendance at your event and draw lots of bids from fans.
Don’t forget that you can also boost your auction revenue by adding consignment items from companies like Charity Fundraising. There is no cost to your group and zero risk because you only pay for the items that sell. They offer sports memorabilia as well as signed musical items and celebrity items
Fundraising Note: Most pro sports teams also provide non-profit groups some nice fundraising opportunities on game days such as working the concession stands for a percentage of their sales. Some teams also let groups raise funds by serving as vendor salespeople in the stands.
It’s a hard day’s work, but motivated groups can raise a significant amount for their cause.

Our Favorite Sports Fundraising Idea
1. 99Pledges Sports Team Fundraisers
99Pledges specializes in helping organizations like yours host the most engaging yet simple fundraisers possible. With a focus on pledge campaigns, these fundraisers are a great way to drum up community support and raise money for a cause you care about!
With a pledge fundraising campaign, participants (likely team members) gather support in the form of pledges, or promised donations to be collected at a future date. Donations are often pledged as a certain amount of money per lap/mile/point/other activity successfully completed within the timeframe.
By using easy-to-share individual fundraising pages for each player, participants can gather donations from far and wide with social media and other digital tools (with the help of a parent for younger participants, of course).
Best of all, this fundraising strategy can be adapted to fit any event-a-thon type fundraiser for your team, including a walk/run/jog-a-thon, dance-a-thon, or bike-a-thon! It’s a great way to keep kids active while raising money for your sports team at the same time.
Best Youth Sports Fundraising Ideas
If you’re raising money for a youth sports team, you might be looking for ways to get the kids involved in your fundraising efforts. Here are some of our top suggested sports-themed campaigns specifically catered to a younger demographic of fundraisers.
Don’t forget to have participants sign liability waivers before taking part in any rowdy fundraising ideas. And if your events cater to minors, be sure to collect parent or guardian signatures as well!
Luckily, online waiver software can make the entire waiver-signing process quick and painless. Send out links to your digital forms ahead of time so that participants can sign from their mobile devices before arriving. Then, if a participant gets injured, your team can quickly locate the right form in seconds.
Now, let’s jump into our other favorite sports fundraising ideas!
Put a fun, sporty spin on a traditional walk-a-thon that your team is sure to love by hosting a hit-a-thon. This can easily be adapted to your favorite sport— whether that’s football, basketball, baseball, or soccer. Kids can even get some practice time in while earning money for their team!
Simply gather pledges from friends and family members that agree to sponsor each “hit” or “shot,” and then get to playing. Be sure to set some parameters ahead of time, such as the number of opportunities or time limit each player has to make their shots, or the distance from which they are required to stand.
3. Shoe Drive Fundraisers
Effort: ✔ ✔
Every parent knows the frustration of their child growing out of any pair of shoes they buy way too fast. Take advantage of those growing feet for good, by hosting a community-wide shoe drive campaign.
Encourage individuals in your neighborhood to donate gently worn, new, and used shoes to a community stockpile that can then be recycled and traded in for cash. After all, most families will have at least a few pairs of outgrown, hardly worn shoes they wouldn’t miss! By partnering with a shoe drive organizer, all you have to do is collect the shoes— they’ll do the rest and provide you with a check.
4. Field Day
Cost: $ $
Effort: ✔ ✔
Gather the community for a day of fun and games with a field day fundraiser. Make sure to prep classic games like dodgeball, tug-of-war, obstacle courses, treasure hunts, and any other fun activities you choose. If you plan for a nice, warm day you can even get water games involved!
You can charge a general fee to get in and sell concessions to earn some extra cash! Consider offering special prizes for your top-performing teams or individuals to boost healthy competition among players.
Effort: ✔ ✔
Raise money for your team while helping out in your community with a chore- or serve-a-thon. Team members can assist with household chores, yard work, running errands, and other community service projects for local community members in need.
This is a great opportunity for your team to get out and do good for those around them, while the recipients of this help can give back to youth in their community. It’s a win-win for all involved!
6. Youth Sports Camp
Effort: ✔ ✔ ✔
If your team is composed of older athletes, including middle- and high-schoolers, consider hosting a youth sports camp to raise funds for the team. Young children in your community will jump at the chance to learn from the best athletes in their neighborhoods, and parents will be willing to pay a decent price for a good cause and an excellent opportunity.
Set up week-long camps during the summer months or consider a shorter, weekend-long workshop for some quick tips. Give young participants the chance to learn new skills and practice their favorite sports— whether that’s football, soccer, basketball, or tennis.
7. Dodgeball Tournament
Encourage the kids in your community to form teams and join a dodgeball tournament for a good cause. Charge an entrance fee for each participant, and consider selling team t-shirts for bonus revenue.
Consider partnering with the school administration to host the event during school hours, and students can pay a small fee to watch the showdown (and get out of class!).
Cost: $ $
Effort: ✔ ✔
Partner with a local bowling alley for this exciting fundraising event. Similar to a walk-a-thon, participants gather sponsors that pledge a certain amount for every pin they knock down or a grand total for the event.
It might be a little pricey to rent out a bowling alley for your fundraiser, but with the right planning and promotions, the turnout can be great! After all, who doesn’t love bowling?
9. Autographed Memorabilia
Treat your team members like sports stars with this unique fundraiser. Sell autographed memorabilia (i.e. a signed baseball or glove) to family and friends who can keep the memento for years to come.
You never know, one of those balls could be worth millions one day! Kids will love signing their own memorabilia like a superstar. Plus, it will be a nice reminder of the child’s years as a sports star.
10. Talent Show
Cost: $ $
Effort: ✔ ✔ ✔
Gather team members and other excited individuals who are ready to show their talents to the world. Let these kids sing, dance, juggle, or show off another special skill at a talent show fundraiser.
Charge a fee to audition or participate, and sell tickets to parents and family members to watch the show. Talent shows are fun and exciting for all parties involved, and great memories to cherish forever.
Cost: $ $
Effort: ✔ ✔ ✔
Host a community-wide carnival with food, games, and performances to raise money for your team. Consider collecting a general admission fee or charging per game or ticket, depending on the setup of your choice. Don’t forget to sell slushies and popcorn, too!
Start promoting the carnival well ahead of time so you can ensure the best turnout for this community-style event. Attendees will have a ton of fun while supporting a good cause.
12. Sports Photo Shoot
Youth sports are a cherished time for kids and parents alike. Whether that first t-ball team, flag football game, or local sports tournament— like many other children’s activities, parents want to document each and every moment of it.
Choose a nice location and a professional photographer (preferably a volunteer, to keep costs low) and set up a photo shoot for your team. Take both team photos and individual shots, and then sell the photos to the families for a memorable keepsake. Don’t forget to bring your sporty props and have some fun poses ready!
Team Fundraising Ideas to Get Everyone Excited
Fundraising can be a great opportunity to strengthen community relationships while simultaneously raising money for team expenses. Get to know other players and families better with these fundraising events that get the whole crew involved!
A walk-a-thon is the go-to pledge fundraising event, popular for both its fundraising potential and the ease with which you can hold it. The steps are simple:
- Create a pledge fundraising page for your overall fundraiser and empower participants (such as players, their family members, and your greater community) to create their own pages alongside it.
- Choose a date and space for participants to walk.
- Participants raise donations corresponding to their participation in the event. For example, “$1 for every lap walked.”
- At the event, encourage participants to go the distance and watch pledged gifts become tangible donations for your organization.
This event is so popular because you can get the whole town involved– young or old. Invite your community to join the team to raise funds and get fit in the process.
14. Team Fundraising Letters
Encourage your team’s youth athletes to flex their humble muscles by writing fundraising letters to your local community.
Ask the kids to express genuinely what participating in your youth program means to them in letters to your community. Send them out to supporters to your program, whether local businesses or other influential members of your community.
In these letters, ask for donations both financial and in-kind. When local businesses see the good your program does for kids in the community, they’ll be inspired to encourage the good work!
15. Car Wash
Effort: ✔ ✔
Gather your teammates on a warm summer day for a car wash fundraiser. As one of the most popular, traditional fundraising events, you’re sure to draw in a crowd looking for an inexpensive car wash for a good cause.
All you need is an empty parking lot, cleaning supplies, and eager participants to get started. Don’t forget to make signs and promote your event on social media to draw in the most customers!
16. Dog Wash
Effort: ✔ ✔
Nobody likes bathing their own dogs, and groomers can get so expensive. Encourage local pet owners to bring their dogs out for your team players to wash at a good price. It’s a great way to raise money for your team and have a great time!
Consider pairing this with your car wash fundraiser for boosted revenue at a single event. You’ll already be soapy and community members can get their cars and dogs washed simultaneously.
17. Foam Fun Run
Effort: ✔ ✔
Spruce your typical run-a-thon up by turning it into a foam fun run. Participants can gather sponsors and raise money in the same way, but this time they’ll be running through an endless amount of bubbles.
Not only is a foam fun run more exciting for participants, but it also makes your fundraiser stand out more to potential donors and sponsors. Bring in more funds and more fun with this engaging campaign!
18. Pancake Breakfast
Cost: $ $
Effort: ✔ ✔
Invite community members to join you for a homemade pancake breakfast, hosted by your very own sports team. Consider charging per plate or setting an all-you-can-eat price, and get to cooking!
Make sure to provide all the best pancake toppings so guests can have the best flapjack experience possible.
19. Coach Challenge
Of course, kids look up to their sports coaches, but they also love to see them do embarrassing things! Set a challenging, yet attainable fundraising goal that if met, the coach agrees to do some outrageous activity.
Maybe that’s getting pied in the face, sitting in a dunk tank, or dressing up like a chicken — the possibilities are endless. The more extravagant the challenge, the more motivated players will be to bring in donations.
20. 10,000 Step Challenge
For the 10,000 step challenge, participants commit to taking 10,000 steps in a single day and collecting pledges similarly to a walk-a-thon. Sponsors may choose to pledge a certain amount per step, mile, or day of reaching their goal.
To track each participants’ steps, they may use a specific activity tracker or one within a smartphone or other device. Players can walk with a friend or choose to go at their own pace.
Top Ideas to Bring Sports Team Fundraising Online
Keep up with the constant shift toward digitization by integrating online fundraising strategies into your fundraising plan. Online fundraisers are more accessible to a wider audience and can lead to increased funding with little effort on your part.
21. Viral Video Challenge
Effort: ✔ ✔
Start a viral video challenge with your team that can bring in funding from all over the world. Participants simply record their video, make a donation, and tag the next person in line. To get your own viral video challenge started, all you have to do is:
- Brainstorm ideas for a challenge.
- Record your video.
- Post to social media.
- Get your whole team to partake.
- Encourage people to start sharing like crazy!
The most successful videos include some sort of humor or wow element to grab your audiences’ attention quickly, and an appeal to emotion that says why they should help fund your sports team.
Crowdfunding is another way you can start gathering donations from across the globe. Simply start a campaign using a crowdfunding platform, share a condensed history and background of your team, and encourage users to help support your sports team.
Then, start sharing your donation page far and wide through teammates and family members’ personal social networks. The more your campaign spreads, the more funding you’ll receive.
23. Team T-Shirts
Cost: $ $
Selling unique team t-shirts is a great way to raise money for athletics, because not only do supporters get the joy of charitable giving, but they also receive a bonus for themselves. Additionally, a team uniform can foster a sense of community for the team!
Team t-shirts aren’t only for teammates, either. Sell your custom-made team t-shirts and jerseys to parents and family members, community supporters, and more.
24. Matching Gift Programs
Matching gift programs are a great way to get two donations for the cost of soliciting one. Many of your current supporters are likely eligible for their charitable donation to be financially matched through their employer, though they might not realize it yet.
By leveraging corporate philanthropy programs, local community members (families, friends, colleagues, etc.) will be more likely to give and to make a larger contribution!
25. Academic Calendar Sale
Effort: ✔ ✔
Design and produce your own custom-made calendars to sell to individuals in your community. Be sure to select nice images, an attractive layout, and high-quality materials to create a professional-looking calendar that community members will want to purchase.
You might also want to include scheduled community-wide events in your calendar on top of national holidays so that everyone always knows what’s going on around town!
Effort: ✔ ✔
Many sports teams seek community sponsors such as small businesses, churches, and other local organizations. While this is sometimes an effective way to fund an entire team, some sponsors may be more interested in a smaller financial commitment to a single player.
When you seek local businesses and members in the community to sponsor an individual athlete, you may need to gather more sponsors, but they may also be easier to solicit.
27. Sports-Themed Charity Auction
Cost: $ $
Effort: ✔ ✔
Charity auctions are one of the most effective event-based fundraisers an organization can run. Make it a themed one to take yours one step further!
To fit with the sports fundraiser idea, try planning a sports-themed live auction. Ask local businesses to donate sports-related goods and packages to auction off at a nice event, and be sure to decorate the venue on theme as well.
Easy Fundraising Ideas for Sports Teams
Do you already have your hands full with school, sports practices, weekly games, and more? Check out these simple fundraising ideas that can be the perfect way to raise money for your sports teams without having to shell out too much time and effort.
28. Coupon Books
Partner with some local businesses and restaurants that are willing to offer exclusive deals for your sports team’s generous supporters. Combine all these great bargains into a singular coupon book and start selling to community members, families, friends, and loved ones of your players.
Locals in your community will love the chance to make great savings at the businesses they already frequent, while at the same time providing much-needed assistance to youth sports programs.
29. Restaurant Percentage Night
Find a restaurant in your community that’s willing to partner for a community night fundraiser. You’ll agree on a percentage of funds (total revenue, profits, each participating check, etc.) collected on a particular night that will be donated to your sports team. Then, start spreading the word far and wide to ensure a great turnout on that night!
Some popular chain restaurants for this type of event include Chick-fil-A and Chipotle, but you also might consider a smaller, local business as well! Be sure to plan your percentage night early and start promoting as soon as possible.
30. Restaurant Tip Jar
Similarly to the restaurant percentage night, you’ll need to find a willing business to partner with you for this fundraiser. This one, however, takes a more passive approach over a longer timespan to collect loose change from restaurant patrons.
You might be surprised at how often customers are willing to leave any spare change if there’s a collection happening. Just make sure to provide a nicely crafted tip jar with your team name and picture, so that customers know where the money is going.
31. Concession Stand
Nothing says “sports game” like a jumbo hot dog and a bucket of popcorn. After all, one of sports fans’ favorite aspects of the game viewing experience includes hitting up the concession stand for a halftime snack.
That means, your team should definitely start your own concession stand to host during games if you don’t already have one. Recruit eager parents and family members to man the station during games, so that viewers can purchase their favorite game-time snack at their leisure.
The first step in hosting a raffle is to secure a big prize that the majority of your audience would enjoy. In this case, you may want to choose something sports-related to best cater to your audience. Then, start promoting your raffle (what the prize is, how to purchase tickets, etc.) and selling tickets. Be sure to encourage those entering the raffle that the more tickets they buy, the greater their chance at winning!
At the conclusion of a set amount of time, you’ll select the winning ticket, and the participant with the matching ticket wins the prize.
Text-to-give is one of the easiest fundraisers you can host. By partnering with a text-to-give service, they’ll provide you with a unique phone number that you can promote to your audience. When donors text a specified keyword to your text-to-give number, they’ll then be prompted to fill out a short form to confirm their gift.
The whole donation process can be completed in minutes, making it a convenient tool for both the supporter and the recipient. Just make sure you share your text-to-give number far and wide to get the most support possible.
34. Best Seat in the House
This is similar to a raffle fundraiser, but with a very specific prize — the best seat in the house. Simply acquire a couch or a loveseat to keep front and center at the field or court your team plays on. Start selling tickets beforehand, to be drawn from a raffle at the start of the game.
The winner then gets the honor of watching the game from the best seat in the house — and bringing a friend or two to share. Make sure the winner gets special VIP treatment as well, such as free items from the concession stand!
35. Food Truck Partnership
Book a food truck or two to be waiting in the parking lot when your game gets out. Make arrangements with the trucks ahead of time to decide on logistics such as fees and suggested donations, then encourage your audience to stop by on their way out.
Be sure to promote the event ahead of time so that players, families, and fans can adjust their plans accordingly and ensure a large enough turnout to make a profit. Bring in all kinds of new and exciting food trucks to boost excitement surrounding the event.
36. Junk Drive
Did you know that people throw away items that are still worth quite a bit of money every day? Seemingly useless things like old computers, empty ink cartridges, and used flash drives can be collected and easily traded for cash.
Encourage players, family members, and other community members to collect these items and donate to a junk drive fundraiser for your sports team instead. These are popular campaigns because, instead of asking for money, you’re essentially asking for donors’ trash (which they’ll be much more likely to hand over).
The fundraising possibilities are endless! Find the campaign ideas that are most suited for your specific team, and start planning right away. After all, the most successful fundraisers are the ones that have a lot of thought put into them.

15 Creative and Easy Football Fundraising Ideas for 2021
Regular football season in high school is typically around 10 weeks, with the first games of the year in mid-November. Ten weeks is plenty of time to raise adequate funds for the travel, uniforms, equipment, and your team’s other necessities.
Team sports have a lot of value. They help with learning new skills and coordination, developing social skills, learning to work with others and support them, and boosting self-confidence.
Unfortunately, the biggest barrier to youths competing in sports is the cost. According to ESPN, “The average amount of spending on sport was approximately $692. That’s per child, per sport, and per year.”
Fundraising increases the opportunity for sports inclusivity, and it’s important that your team is investing time into fundraising to ensure every child that would like to participate has the opportunity to do so.
The 15 creative ideas in this blog include ideas that are COVID-friendly and easy to pull together quickly for an end-of-the-season fundraising push. However, it also includes those that might take a little more time to pull together and may prove more without COVID restrictions. Either way, these ideas will help you get a jump start on current and future fundraising!
In 1973, the Miami Dolphins capped a perfect season with their Super Bowl win against Washington. Along with this historic occurrence, the team also pledged to make a social impact, partnering with United Way. To this day, this partnership still exists.
Also, according to the NFL website, “Since 2017, the NFL Foundation has funded nearly 650 grants totaling more than $3 million to organizations working in the areas of social justice and equality.”
Who says football can’t make a social impact?
As you can see, football, philanthropy, and fundraising go hand in hand, so let’s get started!
In this article, we cover 15 creative football fundraising ideas:
- Flip flop fundraiser
- Coordinate event parking
- Scratch off tickets
- Branded t-shirts
- Football discount cards
- Winner’s pledge
- Student’s artwork sales
- Rent an athlete
- Socially distanced tailgate
- Host a flag football tournament
- Host a polar plunge
- Host a charity run
- Challenge the coach
- Spirit night a local business
- Flamingo flocking
Among all fundraising opportunities for football teams, there is one method that is tried and true: product sales! There are various product sales football teams have used as fundraisers for many years. Here are some ideas:
1. Flip flop fundraiser
As quirky as it sounds, team-branded flip-flops are often a huge hit!
What does that mean? It means you are eliminating the upfront cost and the risk of losing money because you are taking orders before you ever purchase the materials!
Especially for those in hotter climates, this a fun, simple, low-cost product sale that can have up to 70% profit for your team!
Pro tip: Keep in mind other opportunities to collect orders before ordering materials to have the highest profit!
2. Coordinate event parking
Are there any big events coming up in your community? Even with COVID, there are still large outdoor events happening, such as drive-in movies.
Reach out to local venues, event organizers, and the community connections you have, and see if your team can run parking for an event. Ask if you can split the parking profits or collect a percentage of the profits to put towards your team’s fundraising goal.
Getting your team involved in the community in some way can add value, teach other important skills, and help collect additional donations. If people in the community know why the team is at an event, it may make them more likely to offer up additional donations.
3. Scratch off tickets
With scratch-off tickets, your donors don’t know how much they are going to contribute. That’s part of the fun!
Typically, they will purchase the scratch-off ticket, then spend an additional 50 cents to 3 dollars, depending on their luck.
These are easy, fun, and you can sell them at games or other events! ABC Fundraising or Just Fundraising are both great places to design and order your scratch-off tickets!
4. Branded t-shirts
Another opportunity to include team branding in your product sales, t-shirts are a bit more customizable, therefore more enticing. With options like “Grandma of a Wildcat,” or “Dad of a Dolphin,” or “Sister of a Tiger,” branded team tees are a fun option for consistent game goers and loyal fans!
Custom Ink or Bonfire are great online options for designing and selling your t-shirts!
Pro tip: If there is a shop local to you that does screen printing or embroidery, work with them to create fun designs for your team tees! They could sell them in stores and give you a percentage of sales.
Though you may not get as much money, this might be a more accessible way for people in your community to buy the shirts, and you’re supporting a local business.
5. Football discount cards
Who doesn’t love saving money? Everyone does, which is why discount cards are so popular!
These take a bit of coordinating, but when done well, the profit margin can range from 50% to 100%!
Coordinating with local businesses, chat with business owners about discounts they are willing to offer to fans. Then, create a booklet with these coupons using tools like Easy Fundraising Cards.
You can sell these at games, online, or on Facebook Marketplace.
6. Winner’s pledge
This product sale is for your loyal fans, so make sure to let all the grandparents, fathers, mothers, and other family members of your team know.
At the beginning of football season, create a signup for people to join the Winner’s Pledge. Each week your team wins, the people who sign up must donate a set amount of money.
7. Student’s artwork sale
Who doesn’t love original art? Though your athletes are honing their sporting skills, perhaps they are talented in other ways. Use these additional skills and have your athletes create art to sell online.
With tools like eBid, 24fundraiser, and Charity Auctions, it’s a matter of collaboration and dedication to upload student artwork and sell it to eager buyers.
You can market the art auction on Facebook, your school’s website, and flyers around your community.
Are you worried that this will take up too much of your athlete’s time? Use art class projects or already existent art that is lying around collecting dust.
8. Rent an athlete
With a wide variety of people coming to support your team, game time is prime time to advocate for fundraising.
At your next football game, a few of your team members should announce Rent an Athlete at halftime and have a signup sheet ready to go at the concession stand.
For a set price, athletes from your team will do odd jobs for people in need of assistance.
This is an opportunity to both raise money and help people in the community by letting your team spend a few weekends mowing lawns, painting fences, cleaning up yards, and doing other busywork that needs doing!

9. Socially distanced tailgate
Tailgates are regular events that are guaranteed to have great attendance.
This presents a wonderful opportunity for your team to set up and sell additional snacks or hold contests for fans and should include prizes of some sort, such as team merch or free tickets.
For a price, fans can enter these contests. Contests may include the opportunity to participate in halftime entertainment, seeing who can sing the fight song all the way through without stuttering, or wagering on who has attended the most games so far that year.
10. Host a flag football tournament
Recruit well-known, influential people in the community to compete in a flag football tournament.
These influential individuals can then crowdfund, asking fans, colleagues, and family to buy tickets to this special flag football event, with all proceeds being donated to the team.
Parents can referee, and teams can host the event on school premises.
11. Host a Polar Plunge
For all you northern readers, “Polarbearing” is the act of jumping into cold water for fun.
If you host this event, you can charge for transportation, hot beverages, towels, and other necessary items at the plunge!
To host this event safely, it is best to wait until after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Keep this in mind, and put it on your fundraising calendar for a safer time.
12. Host a charity run
Hosting a charity run is an engaging way to raise money as it requires people in the community who are dedicated to your cause to participate.
People must pay an entry fee to participate in the race, which is where a large portion of your profits will come from. However, there is also the potential for crowdfunding, and runners can hop on social media or other platforms to ask their family and friends to donate to your football team.
Organizing a charity run can yield a large amount of money, but make sure to plan far enough in advance to make it profitable!
13. Challenge the coach
At games, on social media, or on your school website, collect money to challenge your football coach.
Set a fundraising goal, and tell people that, if you reach that goal, your football coach must do whatever task the team has chosen.
That could mean the coach has to shave their head, has to wear a costume around the school for a day, or has to do a weather forecast for your local news channel one evening. Get creative, and make it fun for students and parents alike to contribute.
14. Spirit night at a local business (or multiple businesses)
Spirit nights are when you coordinate with a local business and ask them to dedicate one evening to your team and donate a percentage of their profits made that evening to your team.
Many businesses are invested in the potential of student-athletes. Therefore, they host spirit nights year-round for football teams and other groups. Reach out to businesses that regularly participate in spirit nights, or form a new partnership with a local business that might allocate a higher percentage to your team than chain businesses might.
This is a popular fundraiser, though, so make sure to call local businesses early in the year and coordinate a spirit night!
15. Flamingo flocking
This fundraising idea is a great practical joke for people in your community.
Your team needs to buy 20 to 30 plastic flamingos and paint them school colors. Then, set up a signup sheet that people can fill out anonymously. The signup sheet must include the address or office number of the individual being flocked. For a price, people can sign up to flock to their neighbors, co-workers, friends, or family.
In the wee hours of the morning, members of your team will visit the home or office of the individual being “flocked” and put the flamingos in their yard or office with a sign that says, “You’ve been flocked!” The team must then come back and collect the flamingos after several hours so the process can repeat.
This obviously takes some coordination and would be a great opportunity for parents or siblings to volunteer, as well.
Make your fundraiser a touchdown!

With these ideas, you can create successful fundraisers for your team, scoring the opportunity to have more students play football for your team without the cost of travel, equipment, and other items as a barrier.
Dear fans of rhythmic gymnastics, today’s conversation with the President of the Rhythmic Gymnastics Federation of the NSO will be devoted to the topic: “How to choose a coach?”
– Vera Nikolaevna, September 1 is approaching, many parents are looking for a gym and a coach to whom they will bring their child to class, can you advise how to choose the right coach, what should be guided by?
– In rhythmic gymnastics, a very early moment of specialization, children begin to engage in developmental gymnastics from the age of 3 and by the age of 7 they confidently switch to rhythmic gymnastics.To successfully overcome this initial stage, the coach-parent union is very important. The training process is not a set of exercises, but a multifaceted creative process aimed at developing not only physical qualities. It is important for the child’s parents to understand that everything that will happen in the child’s life begins from childhood, it is important to teach the child to think positively, to develop the child’s patriotism towards his native land and country. It is the upbringing of a child in this vein that will help him to feel confident in a sports team during training.
– Vera Nikolaevna, please advise, what should parents of future gymnasts pay special attention to when choosing a coach?
– First of all, you should pay attention to whether the coach is in the Federation of Rhythmic Gymnastics of the Novosibirsk Region, why did I put this item in first place? Unfortunately, now in our city there are clubs and coaches positioning themselves in the field of rhythmic gymnastics, but in fact they are not. They are not members of our Federation and cannot guarantee the correct methodology and safety during the course.The list of all clubs in our Federation is on our website, you can always look and check. We are always in interaction with all coaches of the Federation, we have common goals and objectives, we are all developing rhythmic gymnastics in our city and region, we organize competitions, conduct master classes for the coaching staff, senior mentors share their experience with young coaches, hence it follows our traditions, which carry a common origin, but differ in the methods of the training process.
Secondly, I would like to draw your attention to availability. In every district of our city and region there are sports schools and gymnastics clubs that are members of the Federation, the parents of a child always have the opportunity to find a club or gymnastics school almost within walking distance and be sure that he will get to a specialist in his field.
Thirdly, a lot depends on the parents of the child, especially at the initial stage, because the coach sees the child only in training, and the child spends most of the time with the parents, therefore, a lot of tasks fall on the shoulders of the parents: this is the organization of the correct daily routine, healthy eating, motivation, support.
– Thank you, Vera Nikolaevna, for your time, I think now the parents who have decided to enroll their child in the rhythmic gymnastics section have the necessary information.
– Please! We are waiting for young gymnasts in September in our halls in the classroom!

90,000 10 Steps to Success in Adolescence
Do well in school. Not as important as you
boring now, but education will help you become a productive member of society.
Achieve excellent results in school; try your best, listen
teachers, do your homework, study and get good grades. This is
will help you get into a good university, which will pave the way for
great work in the future.School will put you on the right track!
Show yourself as a useful member of society.
Volunteering will not only improve your social position, but also make
you are happier. Research shows that volunteers are less likely to
depression and other emotional problems than other people. Find such
opportunities to help people you are interested in. For example, if you love
animals, volunteer at an animal shelter. If you like helping
people, prove yourself in the homeless cafeteria.If you are interested in problems
environment, plant trees or pick up trash. When you help
others, you will feel better about yourself. You bring to life
significant changes and, above all, many hours of volunteer work
will look good on your resume!
Define your goals in life and work towards them
achievement. Start thinking about the career you want to build, but accept
the right choice, taking into account their interests and strengths.It can become
your profession for the rest of your life! You can still work on goals without
career-related, for example, starting your own organization to collect
funds, excellent grades in school, team sport, etc.
Set the bar high and you yourself will be surprised at what you can do!
Don’t get into trouble – with the law or
other. This can ruin your plans for the future. Avoid pressure
peers and do not take alcohol, drugs, give up cigarettes.Respect the law so you don’t end up in the back of a police car. If
you are being persuaded to do something, leave. If you can avoid things like this in
adolescence, it will be much easier for you to dodge this when
you will graduate from school and will not be pressured by your peers.
Behave well with your parents and teachers.
Remember, they are committed to helping you become your best. Respect and value them
their opinion, even if sometimes they annoy you. Be aware of what they do
what they do because they care about you and want you to achieve
success in life.You cannot choose your teachers or your family, but everything to you
you will have to put up with them. Learn now how to deal with people,
because when you become an adult you will not be able to choose your boss
or employees, so it’s best to learn to respect others now.
Make good friends who can
help you out! Friends will support you and lift your spirits. Be with those who do
you are happier and leave those who do not. Create a group of loving and
able to support friends who can help you succeed in life and fulfill
dreams come true.Find some really good friends who
will stay with you when you finish school.
Be active! Join the sports
team at school or outside! Go for a run in your area.
Take your dog for a great long walk. Sign up for yoga classes
swim at a local recreation center, do squats during a TV commercial –
anything! Just exercise! This will make you feel better – physically and
mentally.According to research, people who are actively pursuing their children
and adolescence will be more active when they grow up, so it’s better to stock up on
charge of cheerfulness now.
Do what you love. Find yourself a hobby –
reading, writing, sewing, singing, dancing, sports, pottery and
etc. It will take your time and help develop your personality. Experiment and
discover new things for yourself; you may be surprised that you really
enjoy the process!
Believe in something.Start to believe in the idea, be
it is a public issue or an environmental issue or even a religion. So you
begin to form your own judgments. Define your beliefs and defend
them. Learn to stand up for what you think is right.
Live to the fullest! You are young so shortly and,
before you realize it, you will already be an adult who will sigh,
saying: “It is a pity that I did not succeed in doing this in the years of my youth.”
Be brave, go out into the world and live your life! Life is short so
enjoy it while you can.
