There’s no getting around it, from elementary school through high school, there are many sports, events and activities that are costly to participate in or even just be a part of. So, this usually means that they require fundraising. Graduations, sports team participation, and many other events cost money. And the bigger the team, the class or event, the bigger the expenses, so fundraising is pretty much a given with school budget cuts being what they are these days. So if you’re in charge of a fundraiser, where do you start and how do you make the most of your fundraising opportunity? It can be a difficult task, but I assure you, it does not have to be.

The first step is to be clear about your goal for fundraising. Be specific about what you need money for, and how much of that total you expect each student to be responsible for. Having concrete targets is essential for successful fundraising. If everyone involved understands exactly what your fundraising targets are, you are much more likely to hit those targets.

Next, of course, is choosing a fundraising idea that will help propel you toward your goal. Coastal Sports NJ can offer you up to 60,000 sq. ft of indoor event space and a number of fun activities certain to find something that will suit your group and intended customers. We have fundraising ideas that can benefit any size group and any type of customer.

Lastly, relax. Fundraising is important, but it’s also fun! The kids will get excited because they know their fundraising efforts will benefit them directly, so you should feel free to get excited, too. Fundraisers are a great way to promote teamwork, and the profits you make will help your group excel through another year. And finally, we promise that you will have so much FUN and SUCCESS with your fundraiser at Coastal Sports, NJ, that you will make us a consistent partner year after year in your fundraising efforts.
