Every sports team needs to raise funds whether it is for new equipment, uniforms, travel or simply to keep fees low. Because you have a million and one things to do, no time to think you just decide to go ahead with the same fundraiser you did last year. Hey, it worked and you raised some funds…
Whatever you do please don’t go status quo. If you have been selling chocolate every year, don’t just sell chocolate again this year because it’s what you’ve been doing for the past 5 years. It’s worth taking the extra time to analyze what sports fundraiser is best for you. Which fundraiser will generate the most amount of profit, in the shortest period of time that does not take up too much time and will enable you to reach your fundraising goals?
Magazine fundraising seems to be a more and more popular choice amongst youth sports and schools these days. Why? Because most athletes or their families subscribe to their favorite sports magazines. So why not get your favorite magazines at a discount price and raise funds for your team as well? Why not pass on these great discounts to your friends and family and have them help your team out as well? You can subscribe to sports magazines such as Baseball Digest, Golf Magazine, Runner’s World, Ski, Sports Illustrated, Surfing, Tennis, Track & Field News, Volleyball Magazine and much more. There are not only sports magazines to choose from but whatever category you like such as: Animals, Automotive, Business, Children’s Magazines, Computers, Cooking, Crafts, Education, Entertainment, Family, Fashion, Lifestyle, Music, Religious, Science, Teen and much much more.

Something that we don’t like to think about, but is a fact is that when we are playing sports, there are often some sports injuries. Keeping this in mind, wouldn’t a great, responsible fundraiser be a First Aid Kits Fundraiser? Not only is this great to have, but you can personalize it for your team and they have a shelf life of up to 5 years. See First Aid Fundraising Kits here
