4 Benefits of Fundraising Every Coach Loves
It’s common for coaches to dread “fundraising time.” The stress of planning and organizing a fundraiser for high school athletes can feel like an added burden. For even the most organized coaches, having all the necessary funds to invest in your team and the season while trying to motivate players to go out and sell can feel overwhelming. For your athletes it can be the same – trying to convince family, friends, and neighbors to invest into a fundraiser for their team on top of practices, school work, and social lives is a lot! The same old fundraiser every season can start to feel monotonous. These athletes can easily lose sight of the bigger picture: better training, better equipment, less out of pocket expenses, and ultimately the difference between a good and a great season.
We know the financial burdens of coaching a team, and we understand the struggle of trying to raise money year after year for your program, on top of athletic programs falling victim to funding cuts. So, here are a few benefits every coach loves about fundraising:
