FUNDRAISING

NEED TO RAISE MONEY FOR YOUR TEAM, ORGANIZATION, ASSOCIATION, ETC.? 

LET US HELP!

AS A TEAM MOM / MANAGER FOR OVER 13 YEARS, THE BIGGEST FRUSTRATION THAT I FOUND WAS THAT WE WERE SELLING THE SAME ITEMS EVERY OTHER PARK, SCHOOL, TEAM, OR EXTRA-CIRRICULAR ACTIVITY AT SCHOOL WAS.  THIS MADE OUR JOB VERY DIFFICULT TO RAISE MONEY FOR THESE KIDS. MANY TIMES, WE COULD NOT COME CLOSE TO THE GOALS WE NEEDED TO MEET, EVEN WITH PARENTS, PRIVATE DONORS, OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS, ETC. DONATING EXTRA MONEY. IT WAS VERY DISHEARTENING FOR ALL OF THE WORK THAT WAS PUT INTO IT AND THEN STILL NOT BE ABLE TO BUY THE GEAR, UNIFORMS, TROPHIES, OR GIVE AN END OF THE YEAR PARTY.

NOT ONLY WAS EVERYONE SELLING THE SAME ITEMS, BUT THEY WERE VERY EXPENSIVE ANS THE PERCENTAGE BACK TO THE GROUP WAS MINIMAL. WE SOLD THESE CUPS, THEY WERE $28.00 EA. (NFL LOGO INSIDE).,THE PARK RECEIVED $4.00 PER CUP. DISCOUNT CARDS (MANY DISCOUNTS NOT WVEN CLOSE TO OUR AREA) $15.00 EA.. THE PARK RECEIVED $2.50 PER CARD.

TO HELP FIX THIS, I STARTED BRAINSTORMING WITH SOME OTHER MOMS AND WE WERE KNOCKING AROUND IDEAS.

THE FIRST ONE I IMPLEMENTED WERE THE PERSONALIZED CAR WINDOW DECALS. WE GAVE THE CHOICE OF CERTAIN SPORTS FIGURES AND WE PERSONALIZED THEM WITH THEIR CHILDS NAME OR #. (PEOPLE LOVE TO BRAG ABOUT THEIR KIDS). WE COULD HARDLY KEEP UP WITH DEMAND. WE SET A CUT OFF DATE BECAUSE WE HAD TO MAKE DEPOSITS ON ORDERS. THAT TIME CAME AND WENT. WE NOT ONLY MET THE GOAL, BUT EXCEEDED IT. SINCE ORDERS WERE STILL COMING IN SO STRONG, WE CONTINUED TAKING THEM. WE CAME UP WITH A FEW LITTLE EXTRA THINGA FOR OUR BOYS AND TOOK THE EXTRA MONEY AND DONATED IT TO TEAMS THAT DIDN'T HAVE  ENOUGH FOR TROPHIES, GEAR, END OF YEAR PARTY, ETC.. WHATEVER THEY WERE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH.

WE ALLOWED OUR BOYS TO PRESENT THOSE CHECKS TO THOSE TEAMS AND IT GAVE THEM SUCH A SENSE OF PRIDE AND SHOWED WHAT BEING A REAL TEAMMATE WAS ABOUT.

FROM THE DECALS CAME PERSONALIZED SPORTS HAIR BOWS. THE GIRLS WORE THEM FOE THEIR SPORTS AND THEY WERE PERSONALIZED WITH THEIR NUMBER. THEN MOMS, GRANDMAS, AUNTS, SISTERS, ETC. WANTED THEM. WE MADE THEM WITH THE LAST NAME OR NUMBER, OR ONE OF EACH ON EACH LEG FOR MORE MONEY.

WE NOW HAVE MANY PRODUCTS WE OFFER. IF WE DONT CURRENTLY MENTION IT, WE PROBABLY GET IT.

FROM PERSONALIZED HAIR BOWS, CUPS, SPIKERS, SPORTS ORGANIZERS, SPORTS TOTES, SPORTS CHAPSTICK KEY CHAINS, SPORTS ACRYLIC KEYCHAINS, HEADBANDS, T-SHIRTS,  JEWELRY, COWBELLS AND OTHER NOISE MAKERS, AND MUCH MORE!

WE CAN OFFER MOST ITEMS IN MOST U.S. SPORTS.

WE CAN ALSO OFFER ITEMS NOT SPORTS RELATED. 

WE ALSO HAVE A PROGRAM THAT EACH STUDENT / ATHLETE IS ASSIGNED A CODE TO THEM. THEY PROVISE FRIENDS AND FAMILY A WEBSITE ALONG WITH THWIR CODE. WHEN THE ORDER IS PLACED WITH THE CODE, A PERCENTAGE OF THE TOTAL SALE IS CREDITED TO THE PLAYER.

TO FIX THE SITUATION OF THE COMPANY MAKING A TON OF THE MONEY AND THE GROUP FUNDRAISING MAKING ALMOST NOTHING, WE RUN ON MINIMAL OVERHEAD. WE ARE FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED AND WE WORK FROM OUR HOME.

WE HAVE OTHER PROGRAMS WE ARE WORKING ON AS WELL.

WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT HOW WELL OUR FUNDRAISING HAS DONE FOR MAY GROUPS SO GAR AND LOOK FORWARD TO EXPANDING OUR PROGRAM AND HELPING MORE GROUPS.
