Giveaway for our sports team equipment
I run a sports club with over 30 teams and our frequent candy sales weren’t really working anymore. We did raise money, but almost every year we came up short and couldn’t get the equipment that we really needed.
This year we tried a sweepstakes instead. I hit up a few local stores that sponsored us by giving me gift cards to add as prizes. One of the coaches offered his time-share in the Bahamas as the grand prize and we offered a travel voucher for flights as part of that prize. The response was unbelievable! Turns our people would much rather win a vacation than buy candy bars.
Next time we’ll be adding even more prizes including tickets to local college basketball games and local resort passes. I would suggest a sweepstakes to any nonprofit looking to reach new people. Families and friends of our players were much more willing to share the fundraiser than any other fundraiser we have done in the past.
