Football Fundraising

Sunday, August 21st, 2011

Football Fundraising Ideas for your team, PTO or school.

 

Many fundraising teams have us print football with the team mascot and logo… and without paying anything upfront.   (We accepts school purchase orders or you can team up with a local business to sponsor you)

 

How is this done?

Football fundraisers

Football fundraisers

Find a sponsor :  In this sample the football team found a local pizza to co sponsor the order of the footballs to be custom printed.  At time the sponsor will pay for the whole production.  The footballs then have imprint of the school team logo and also a coupon for a discount at the sponsor’s place of business.

 

It’s a win – win proposition.

 

For example the cost of 100 footballs with one color imprint on the front is $2.15 per ball, or if you wanted to fit two sponsors on the same ball, you can have imprint on the front with one sponsor and imprint on the back with another sponsor, then just add $0.35 per ball for the reverse side imprint in one color.

Football Fundraising Idea

You can get the sponsor(s) pay for the footballs and then distribute the footballs at your football games.  You can sell those for whatever you want to charge.  If the sponsor paid for the whole order, you can sell the balls for something symbolic, say $1.50 or $2.00 a ball or if you contributed a share of the cost then you can raise your selling price by whatever you see appropriate.  The sponsor gets the benefit of repeat advertising as the coupon (in our example the ball has 10% off on large pizza) is reusable every time a customer brings the ball to the vendor or for a certain period after the football game.  The vendor gets extra and repeat business and your team just raised extra funds!

Football Fundraising Idea 

Who would not want to spend a buck or two for a great mini football with the team logo, when this football will return their contribution by earning a great discount at the local restaurant, oil change, auto repair service or other places who will team up with your school to promote their products and services.

Football Schedule Football Fundraiser Idea

If you do not have a business sponsor, you can still sell the footballs for $5 and imprint the footballs with the team logo and the game schedule!

XMAS Tree with $1000 worth of lottery TIX Fundraiser 4 Our Troops

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Today, we have read about an awesome and original fundraising idea.

We hope that sharing it with our visitors would give inspiration to those looking for unique fundraising ideas and those who can can actually participate and chip in to the original fundraiser to support our heroes.

CLIFTON?PARK — A unique fund raiser for mailing packages to U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East may make someone a big winner come December.

Two upstate non-profits that send the “care” packages have combined on an unusual way to pay their mailing costs. The directors of Operation Adopt a Soldier and Books for Troops are requesting donations of unopened scratch-off lottery tickets. The tickets may be in any denomination.

Once the groups have collected tickets totaling $1,000, they will be used to decorate an artificial Christmas tree. A raffle will be held for the tree with all its unusual decorations. The tickets, which are going on sale soon at $10 each, will give some lucky winner a chance at a very merry holiday.

The idea for the unusual fundraiser came from Clifton Park resident Ellen Keegan, the founder of Books for Troops. “We started sending paperback books to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan as part of Operation Adopt a Soldier,” Keegan said.

Scratch-off tickets may be sent to Books for Troops, 192 Oak Brook Commons, Clifton Park, NY 12065-2677.

The drawing for the Christmas tree will take place at 2 p.m. Dec. 12, at the Operation Adopt a Soldier and Books for Troops Family Christmas party at the Saratoga Springs PBA Range, 54 Weibel Ave., Saratoga Springs. Winners need not be present.

Community Contest to Design Custom Christmas Ornaments

Friday, August 12th, 2011

 

 

We often obtain information on how to promote, market and help design your Custom Christmas Ornaments.

 

Here is one excellent example from local news on how one Chamber of Commerce taps into a local community talent to create a successful Christmas ornament fundraiser on yearly basis.

An Article Published in a local newspaper

 

Chamber looking for ornament photos

Though Christmas may still be five months away, the Albert Lea-Freeborn County Chamber of Commerce already is getting into the holiday spirit.

Chamber officials announced this week they are again looking for photo submissions from Freeborn County residents for the 2011 Chamber Christmas ornament.

Submissions will be displayed and voted on by area residents in September.

A full article can be found at : Albert Lea Tribune

 

You can use a similar strategy working with your local newspaper and provide them with a similar article along this format:

 

  • The article calls onto local residents to submit their photos for the annual Christmas ornament.
  • It provides deadline and specification for the photo submissions.
  • It gives details on the previous submissions that were selected in the past years
  • It invites the readers to reserve the current year edition and gives a contact information.

 

What an excellent way to engage the local community in creation of the ornament and at the same time generate interest in the custom ornaments once printed and delivered!

Here are some samples of Custom Ornaments we have designed for local Chambers of Commerce.
