Improving existing and creating new athletic facilities is a feat many schools and programs face often. Securing funds for these projects can be difficult, so it’s not only critical to pick the best flooring system for your needs, but ensure that your funds are maximized and put to the right products!

Need help with your fundraising plans? Here are some tips you might find helpful!

UTILIZE YOUR BOOSTER CLUB

Booster clubs are paramount in school programs from K-12 districts all the way to collegiate programs. Utilize this club to create a small team that can manage your project and funds! Donations can be easily tracked and managed to go directly to your project.

USE YOUR NETWORK

Athletic program alumni and fans are great contacts for fundraising. Reach out to your alumni network and tell them about your project! Through your booster club, alumni and other fans can give one-time or recurring gifts. Tell them your plans and goals for the project so they know exactly what they are donating to!

COMMUNITY PARTNERS

Have you explored corporate sponsorships and advertisements? Many local community business love to partner with and support school systems and their athletic facilities. Consider offering tiered partnerships and set a goal within each tier that will make up a significant portion of your fundraising goal. Does your facility already have a name? Naming rights are a huge opportunity for a local business!

CROWDFUNDING

Take advantage of the growing internet and launch a crowdfunding campaign online! Utilizing an online network can help take your goal outside of your immediate booster club and alumni connections. You may catch the attention to families who will become a part of your athletic community in the years to come, extended family members of current athletes, and potentially a long-time removed alumni that feels inspired to help.

Whatever your fundraising need, there are many options at your disposal that can help you meet your goal.
