We look into ways to incorporate sports with fundraising.
School fundraisers can be done with a number of ideas that can be both old and new in nature. Some of these ideas are universally adopted and are always successful. One of the best ways for school fundraising is to have a sports event.
There are a number of sports that can be used for this purpose. This fundraising idea is bound to get the attention of both parents and students alike and one can expect a large number of participants at such an event. Make sure that the event is well organised and is well advertised in advance so that maximum people can show up on the big day. Here are some ideas that you can use.
Skeet Shoot Fund-raiser
Arrange a shooting range for this event. Make sure that you take all the necessary precautions. Have an entrance fee to the event and hold a tournament based on several rounds. Make sure that you have a minimum age requirement for those who can participate. Also make sure that all safety measures are complete before going ahead with the tournament.
Allow the audiences can see the performance of the participants and appreciate their good work. Have snack available at the event so that people can have some food if they like which will also add to the funds that are being raised. It is one of the best school fundraising ideas that create a lot of competitiveness.
A golf event can be fun too. You will need a golf course and will have to place a high price tag for tournament entrants and the crowd as well. If you can get a local professional to play along with others, it will be even better as people will love to see a professional from their area participate in the event. A good bit of funds can be raised this way.
Bowling can be full of family fun. Arrange a bowling alley for the whole day and let the community members participate. Put a ticket on each game and while most people can play with their families if they like, to have a small tournament later on in the day. This will keep the crowd interested and participants will give it their best shot to win. Have a trophy for the winner and the runner ups to encourage them. This will not only help you in raising funds for the school but also letting the families have a lot of fun together.
