Creating Awareness and Raising Money for Your Lacrosse Team
It is not always easy to raise money or create awareness for a fundraiser. These days, it seems that more and more organizations are appealing for funds. If you like, fundraising has become a very crowded market space.
But it is not only about fundraising. For instance, if you help to manage a Lacrosse team, you may also want to increase support. Here are three ideas you should check out when you want to increase awareness and boost your bank balance at the same time.
3 Ways to Raise Money for Your Lacrosse Team
We all love to share our ideas and what we believe in. When you want to create both awareness in the community and raise money, selling custom car magnets is not a bad idea. Magnets that you can stick on cars will have an instant impact.
When you place your order, remember to order your magnets in different sizes. Large magnets have an instant impact but smaller magnets will still help to raise awareness. Try to come up with a unique logo. In a perfect world, your logo should match your website’s favicon. That way, your Lacrosse team is instantly recognizable.
You can either sell your magnets or give them away when someone gives a donation. Sometimes it is nice to receive a small gift in return for a donation. It makes the person giving the donation feel appreciated. Also, he is more likely to display your magnet. This will help to raise awareness.
2. Have A Come and Play Day
Lacrosse is a very popular game but many people are not familiar with how it is played. Organizing an open day or family day is not that difficult. You will find that most players and their families will want to help out. Why not arrange a demonstration game and invite onlookers to have a go? You could even end up with some new Lacrosse team members.
Set up a couple of stalls on the sidelines selling anything from homemade cakes to magnets. Before you know it, you will have raised a substantial sum of money and increased awareness.
3. Sponsored Walks
If you have invested in car magnets, you want to think about activities you can do to make the most out of your investment. One activity we often overlook is the sponsored walks. They used to be very popular but for one reason or another, there are fewer of them around.
However, sponsored walks are a great way of getting people involved and raising money at the same time. One of the best things about sponsored walks is that a supporter does not have to give a lot of money to the walker. If you get 20 people to give $5 per person to the person doing the sponsored walk, you will have raised $100.
As a way of saying thank you, you can in turn offer a walker that has raised a certain amount a magnet. You even give smaller magnets to sponsors that have donated a certain amount.
Raising money and awareness is all about coming up with new creative ideas. Fundraising for any cause is about innovation and making sure you set a target.
