Fundraising Ideas for Girls Softball Team

I need to come up with some fundraisers for my daughter's fastpitch softball team. They are all 17 years old. We already have a car wash. Any great ideas? We need to make alot of money.

Get local businesses to donate gift certificates or goods and then have a silent auction or a raffle. The girls can work in teams and approach four or five businesses each. They should have a letter explaining where the auction/raffle will be held, what the money raised will be used for, and how the sponsors will be recognized (they'll be looking for some kind of free advertising). Try to get working parents to donate something also. Hope that helps.

You might ask your local grocery if they'll let your ladies bag for donations. This was a great fundraiser for my kids' marching band a few years ago.

Can you put together a yard sale? If there is time and a parking lot (weather permitting) to set one up? You can advertise on Craigslist and locally, and yes, having a central prize to bid on is always fun.

You could have some crafty people make a matching fleece throw and pillow, that folds up into itself for a car perhaps, and raffle it off for 2.00 or 3/5.00 tickets. The fabric could be softball in nature.

Sell hot dogs and chips and sodas that you can hopefully get a store to donate, then sell for 1.50 a plate!

See if a local restaurant will donate a dinner for two gift card, a theatre a couple of movie tickets, etc. Then, combined with the things the parents want to donate to sell, you could have a nice little fund raiser there! Good luck!

I do filled basket raffles. You make up a basket with products, Like breakfast, bath, lottery,etc. Ask business for gift certificates, Grocery markets give, Like Giant, or a local market. Rent a building & sell tickets to get in for $5.00. You get 25 chances for that.

People can purchase an extra 25 for $3.00.

I have the name of company that makes tickets. Have light refreshments for extra money..Have door prizes & extra raffle for some large prizes sell tickets 2/$1.00 I can make $1000.00 that day. Advertise the event. If more info is needed email me.
