Curling Fundraising Ideas

Sure, it looks pretty funny to the uninitiated at first, but Curling Clubs are really growing in popularity. Curling clubs often throw fundraisers to buy uniforms, equipment or to pay league dues or travel expenses for competitions. Some clubs are trying to fundraise their way into their own dedicated ice arenas. What can your curling club do as a fundraiser that will stand out?

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Edmund, Oklahoma, the fundraising campaign for the Oklahoma Curling Club’s rock cooler and carts was the purchase of a message that was engraved on the handles of the stones. In Oregon, Evergreen Curling Club launched a fundraising campaign to secure a dedicated curling facility in the Portland-Vancouver area with a fundraising dinner to kick-off the campaign. Fundraisers by other curling clubs include challenge matches, product sales, golf outings, poinsettia sales, raffles, ladies night out, and pizza sales.

You can also choose from a wide variety of curling club DIY fundraising ideas to supplement your program.

Perhaps one of these successful and creative ideas can be adapted for your curling club fundraiser.

Polar Bear Plunge – A number of communities host Polar Bear (or similar) plunges into frigid winter waters to fundraise for Special Olympics and other worthy causes. They are open to anyone willing to “bear” the elements for a good cause. The object is simple. Raise money then plunge into the cold water! The charities raise funds from entry fees, sponsorships and the sale of “Plunge” souvenirs. Read more…

Lake Ice Melt – The Golden K Kiwanis Club of Janesville, Wisconsin holds an annual Truck on Ice fundraiser to benefit local charities. The contest involves determining when the shell of a Chevrolet Suburban placed on a lagoon will break through the ice and sink into the water. A clock installed in the vehicle records the exact moment at which the Suburban submerges, allows Kiwanis members to determine the fundraiser winners. Read more…

Cake Walk – For this simple fundraiser, you have people donate cakes. Usually these people would be the people who are involved in whatever the money is being raised for. You put numbers around tables (usually 1-100, depending the area you’re in). We usually tape the top of the number close to edge of the table and far apart enough for people to stand by their numbers. We have approximately 30-40 people show up most of the time for a cake walk. Read More…
