Varsity fundraising for teams can be extremely easy or extremely difficult. It is your choice.
By the time you are involved on a varsity team level, fundraising has probably become an old hat and something you are very used to having to participate in. The only problem is the time restraints on this level, making it more important than ever that varsity fundraising events are fast, efficient and targeted for your group. That’s when your choice of varsity fundraising products determines how difficult or time consuming your fundraiser will be.
One of the best varsity fundraising products is scratch cards. Scratch card fundraisers are designed with sport-specific graphics, which is important to varsity teams and booster clubs supporting the team. You want a potential supporter to know immediately that a football booster club is raising money for football for example.
Here is a brief description of how scratch card fundraisers work and why they make great varsity fundraising tools:
The best way to visualize the program is as a donation system. Each card contains fifty concealed dots. Your fundraising participants get people to scratch off two of the dots each. That will reveal suggested donation amounts between $.50 and $3.00 under each dot. The person is asked to donate that amount of money and is given a sheet of valuable coupons from national merchants as a thank you gift. The total value of the coupons exceeds $100.
Scratch cards are very profitable allowing your group to spend very small amounts of money to make great profits.
Each varsity scratch card raises one hundred dollars each. Depending on your goal, most groups will purchase one scratch card per player. Your team or group name is imprinted for free on every card to further personalize the program. The profit percentage can reach ninety percent or more.
There is no worry about shelf life, the cards are small and easily fit in a backpack to be carried anywhere.
If you are looking for a varsity fundraising idea, we suggest you consider scratch cards.
