We have organized a list of 10 cool events you could organize to fundraise for a sports team or similar group that your supporters will love:
1. Texas Hold ‘em Tournament – Discuss with your team members, find a house to host the event and do it. You can simply sell tickets for this night, cater some food and drinks, and have fun with your team and their fans.
2. Team Car Wash – Find a car wash that agrees to let your team wash the cars for a day. The car wash could sponsor your club in return, as they will get a lot of visibility.
3. Auction – Ask your team members to donate some personal items, and organize an auction party with the fans. You could also ask the local stores to donate some objects that you can auction later.
4. Garage or yard sale – Make your team members bring some items they do not need or use anymore to create a garage sale. Make sure you set the price with them in advance, and announce the event in all the media possible so all the fans know about it.
5. Sports night out – Find a restaurant that wants to support your club for one night. That means they will donate between 5% and 20% of their income to you. Have a big dinner with the team and your fans. It’s good for fundraising but also for fan bonding. A good idea for promotion is to create a flyer and advertise the event.
