Kick Off Your Summer With A Fundraiser

By  |  0 Comments

With summer finally starting, most cheerleaders are preparing for cheer camp, season payments, and new gear, all of which can be fairly expensive when added together. An easy way to help with these costs is through team fundraising! While fundraisers can seem boring and strenuous, putting the fun in fundraiser can help your team make the most money!

Car Wash

This is a classic fundraiser and while it might seem old and cliché, it’s been around for such a long time for a reason. Car washes are a fun way for teams to bond, get themselves out in the community and raise money for the team. This is an even better idea if you host it near the country where most people live on dirt roads. Stationing it in a city, where most people take the subway or walk, might not be the best idea though.

Raffle Tickets

Selling these tickets can encourage cheerleaders to be more outgoing and make a name for themselves in the community. A raffle is a great idea for teams anywhere because most people have somewhere they can sell the tickets at. A fun prize will also help sell ticket faster while managing to create a positive buzz in the town about your team. With everyone talking about the prizes or hearing about buying tickets, someone might just think about joining the team next year.


This event can range from small to extravagant depending on how much money you are willing to spend on this fundraiser. Carnivals can be a lot of fun for the cheerleaders to work at while encouraging them to be able to communicate with people in the community. Face Painting, Ring Tosses, and Obstacle Courses are usually used in a carnival. Adding a small section to teach cheers or dances, and show off some light stunting might not be a bad idea with the proper equipment.

Fundraisers might seem like they can only be things that kids dread and end up not doing anyways, but when they are added with some fun, you’ll be surprised by how quickly you can make money. Fundraising is a great way to support your program while getting your cheerleaders out in the community!
