Team Fundraising Info and Ideas

A great way to raise additional money for your team is to get everyone involved by setting a goal and coming up with creative and fun ways to reach that goal! There are lots of ideas for team fundraisers including:

Special Events
Holding a social or special event where all team members can invite their friends and family is a very popular way for teams to fundraise. There are many ideas including, block parties, murder mysteries, game or trivia nights and silent auctions.

Sporting tournaments
Holding sporting tournaments such as hockey, baseball, bowling, golf or even virtual video game tournaments are a fun and active way for people to raise money and get involved.

Matching gifts
Team members should inquire with their employer to see if the company will match the dollars raised by their team.
