1. Teams raise more together.
Hold a mini marathon, lift-a-thon, or free throw contest! Regardless of the event logistics, the key is to involve all your athletes and hold them accountable to a fundraising goal.
2. Remind and repeat.
Take your letter writing and call campaign to the next level with email and social media outreach. People are 80% more likely to donate after they receive a reminder to do so, so use emails and social media to update your supporters on your fundraising campaign.
3. A dose of friendly competition goes a long way.
Incentivize fundraising amongst your players, parents, and coaching staff. Offer fun prizes and perks, like a MVF (Most Valuable Fundraiser) trophy, or dumping water on the head coach if the team surpasses the goal.
Our PiggyBackr fundraiser was very successful. I was able to raise more funds than I raised in any other [soccer] fundraisers. I learned the power of fundraising online and incorporating social networks. - Brian Bay Area Outreach & Recreation Program
