Severna Park Football's Path to $20K: How 85 Players Became One Formidable Force


Synergy On & Off the Field: How 85 Players Became One Formidable Force

When a team unites, results can be groundbreaking. Each of Severna Park’s 85 players united under a singular mission and didn't stop reaching until their goal was met.



Fundraising Coach Rob Lunenfeld's Winning Approach:

When Severna Park’s Football Coach Nick Mark, assisted by Fundraising Coach Rob Lunenfeld, set their eyes on a formidable $20,000 target in July, it wasn't just about the goal—it was about the journey. As fundraising veteran Rob emphasizes, "Effort equals success. If you run this program correctly it will make your program a lot of money." - Rob Lunenfeld, Fundraising Coach.


Community in the Lead: The Pillars Behind Severna Park’s Triumph

July 2023 saw an overwhelming surge of support for Severna Park’s fundraiser. Through every donation, whether monumental or modest, they steadily marched towards their $20,000 benchmark. A whopping 255 supporters rallied behind them, exemplifying that a team’s strength can be amplified by those cheering off the field. Time was tight, yet with every tick of the clock, the team showcased remarkable drive, leveraging each moment they had to contact friends & family.


Spotlight on a Crowd Favorite: Analyzing the “Participant” Tier

Severna Park's “Participant Donors” emerged as the crowd favorite. With 113 supporters, each generously contributing $25, its popularity stems from its affordability and the sense of inclusivity it offers. This tier echoes more than generosity—it exemplifies a direct and engaged commitment to the cause.

These tiers transcend monetary amounts, reflecting the trust, commitment, and passion each donor brings to the table.


The Final Score: More than a 5-FIGURE Number
