Raising money for high school sports teams can be very challenging and daunting. Technology continues to change across all industries, but still the common theme amongst athletic directors and coaches are the difficulties in raising money for their teams.
Broadneck High School is an exception to that. Across their sports teams, they’ve raised more than $30,000, well above the average high school. We took a look at a couple of the ways they were using our digital fundraising platform, RallyAroundUs, to raise money for their teams.
We first took the Girl’s Cheerleading team to see how they’ve raised more than $7,040.
Our team had a successful time with the RallyAroundUs program because our members actively used their personal social media platforms to market our link and our fundraising efforts. I also have social media platforms that are used specifically for our cheerleading team and I also marketed the fundraiser on that. I asked parents to also share the link to other family members and discussed exactly what we were raising money for. I talked about the future plans of our program to our families and how we really needed their support to grow into the team we wanted to become. Overall, marketing our campaign on personal social media accounts, spreading the word with tangible reasoning and pushing for family support with mention of future plans really took our fundraiser to the next step!Coach Richardson, coach of Broadneck’s Cheerleading team
Broadneck’s hoops team took a similar approach by reaching as many people as possible as quickly as they could.
We were able to quickly spread the word through email and social media to reach family, friends and other fans. We used the funds we raised to buy new uniforms and help with travel costs.Broadneck basketball coach
