This unique basketball fundraising idea is a fan favorite and a great fundraiser for your team or league. You can do it as a one-time event, or as an ongoing event to raise funds at every game.
Want to get a head start on your basketball fundraising calendar with some unique and exciting ideas that will get everyone up on their feet? A “Shoot for the Hoop” fundraiser is the perfect activity!
Here’s how it works:
You can hold this event before a game, after a game, at halftime, or between games at a tournament.
Fans can “buy a shot” at a set amount for a chance to win a grand prize. The prize can be cash, or a gift item donated by a local business. A great idea to get donors is to offer to advertise the business at your game as your official sponsor. It’s a great opportunity for businesses to get some good exposure, and many will be excited for the chance to be a part of your event. Since the prize will be a main attraction for this event, it’s a good idea to start looking for donors early.
To kick off this activity, participating fans shoot from the three-point line to make a basket. Everyone who makes a basket then goes on to the next round. In the next round, they each take a shot, and everyone who makes it that time moves on again (if no one makes a basket, have everyone go a second round). Repeat until you have a winner!
Another idea is to have this event at every game where participants have the chance to win a small prize like a coupon for a free pizza, or movie rental.
This type of fundraising event is a lot of fun, especially for basketball fundraising because it really gets the fans involved in the game, and it can be a great way to raise funds!
