Fundraising methods have changed over the years for sports teams. But, one thing that hasn’t changed, is the NEED to fundraise for money. Whether it’s to get new equipment, travel with the team, or get rewards for the team…there is always a need to gain monetary funds to help the team. One method that may be NEW to your team, is using crowdfunding to help your team raise money. Crowdfunding is raising money using an online platform, like Move Your Mountain, where your “crowd” helps you reach your fundraising goals. Here’s how it can work:
Let’s just say you have a team with 12 boys on it. Those boys need new equipment this season. Not just NEW equipment, but $5,000 worth of new equipment. It would generally be up to the parents to divide the cost between them and pay up OR start with fundraisers like selling candy bars door to door or having a car wash. Now, there is NOTHING wrong with selling candy bars and having a car wash to raise money. But, why wouldn’t you tap into the crowdfunding market and use your influence among friends and family to help you raise money for your son’s team?
If each of the 12 boys had their parents share a crowdfunding campaign on their social media pages, that reach just expanded from 24 parents to hundreds and thousands of prospective donors. This allows grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, teachers, and family friends to be aware of the fundraiser and become part of it by contributing! No matter what part of the country they live in, everyone has the ability to give to your cause online.
You just reached and surpassed your $5,000 fundraising goal by using your “crowd” to help with your fundraising goal.
And you didn’t have to knock on any doors!
Move Your Mountain is designed for teams and organizations for raise money.
