Booster Club Fundraising Ideas

A booster club is an organization that is formed to support an associated club, sports team, or organization. By definition, one of its main functions is fundraising, and we all know that fundraising is hard!!

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Wisconsin, De Pere High School’s Track and Cross Country Booster Club holds an annual Steak Fry fundraiser. In Oregon, the Cornelius Booster Club holds a weekly Farmers Market fundraiser every Sunday from May through August. Fundraisers by other booster clubs include pizza sales, sales of old uniforms, dinners, car washes, raffles, coupon book sales, pizza nights and auctions.

Red Neck Games – For this fundraiser, participants dress up like rednecks and take part in redneck-related activities such as the hubcap toss; mud pit belly flop contest; bobbing for pigs feet; mud pit slip-and-slide; mud pit tug-of-war; redneck horseshoes using toilet seats; the armpit serenade contest; greased pig catching; and redneck surfing, in which a participant stands on a mattress while being pulled through a mud pit by an all terrain vehicle.  Read more…

Prom Dress Rugby (or Soccer or Field Hockey…) –This is a great fundraiser and also awareness-builder for girls’ athletics in your area… or even for the boys if you have a group of young lads willing to don dresses. The concept is simple, put on an old, used or cheaply bought prom dress and have an exhibition game… invite the public to watch and sell tickets.  Read more…

Spirit Chain – This is a great fundraiser for high school students, but could be used with other groups. Have a competition within the different classes in the school (senior, junior, sophomore, freshmen) to see who has the most school spirit. Each class has two colors that their paper chain consists of. Sell each strip of paper for 25 or 50 cents.  Read more…
