We know each member of a sports team can use FundScrip to raise money to pay for their fees, but what if the sports team themselves took advantage of gift cards too? Yes, you've read it right. Your team can do both!
FundScrip works well with all kinds of fundraising events. If you’re part of a hockey team and are already fundraising with FundScrip year-round, you should also try organizing fundraising events. This way, you can sell your gift cards in person and reach even more people. Here are a few fundraising ideas for hockey and ringette teams.
Hockey fees are getting too expensive? Here’s what North River Minor Hockey Association in PEI did. In 2008, Trevor Lank decided to enroll the North River Hockey Association in FundScrip. He saw a way to help their families raise money to be directed towards their own hockey registration fees. Many families had multiple children playing hockey plus there always more expenses after the registration like tournaments, ice time and equipment. FundScrip seemed like a great way to help offset some of the costs.
The Duffield Devils Select Hockey Team has 16 members and in only four paper order campaigns over two seasons, they have raised over $3,000 in funds. Money raised from this fundraising effort goes towards offsetting ice costs, tournaments and travel expenses. The administrator Katy Fortuna found it to be a great program that was easy to run and the participants really liked the idea of fundraising for their hockey team with their everyday shopping.
