Dixie Baseball Fundraising Ideas

The Dixie Network consists of Dixie Youth Baseball, Dixie Softball, and Dixie Boys & Majors Baseball. Dixie baseball teams often find themselves needing a fundraiser to pay for uniforms, equipment, improvements to the field or travel expenses for tournaments. Fundraising is never easy, but your Dixie team is worth it.

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Lexington, SC, the Columbia Blowfish came to town to help with a fundraiser for Lexington Dixie Youth Baseball by conducting a baseball clinic, played an exhibition game, and held a post-game fireworks show. In Marbury, AL, the Dixie Baseball League threw an End of Season celebration which was day of fun to celebrate the end of a great baseball season and as a fundraiser for next season.  Fundraisers by other Dixie Baseball teams include, golf tournaments, thons, product sales, auctions, restaurant nights, and on-line malls.

Check out our complete list of fundraising products and do-it-yourself fundraising ideas for your next Dixie baseball fundraiser.

Baseball Marathon – If you have a team of willing adult players, see if you can recruit them for this fundraising event. The Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball team front office staff played baseball for 24 straight hours in an effort to raise money and awareness for local Brooklyn food shelters. The Cyclones took on teams of fans from five to 85 years old, consisting of the Borough President’s office, T-ballers, circus clowns, Coney Island freaks, The Old Boys of Summer, and more. Participating teams were asked to make donations. Read more…

Flag Subscription – This is an ongoing fundraising idea. Basically, it is a service where your group installs a nice national flag in the front yard of the subscriber on each of five or more patriotic days. The flags are put out early in the morning and retrieved in the evening. Read more…

Celebrity Autographs – This fundraiser can take weeks or even months of planning, but can bring in a lot of dough for your group with very little up-front cost. Write to every celebrity you can think of and ask for an autographed something to auction off at your fundraising event. Lots of people collect autographs of the rich and famous. Send best-quality, blank note cards to famous people with a POLITE request for them to sign the supplied cards and the reason why you are asking. These guys may not be home, so be patient. Read more…
