Drill Team Fundraising Ideas

Drill Teams are all about precision. But what, precisely, can you do as a fundraiser for your team? Drill Teams throw a fundraiser to raise money for new uniforms and equipment, song rights, travel expenses and venue improvements. Lots of Drill Teams also lend their talents to fundraising for other worthy causes.

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Alabama, the Covington Cowgirls Drill Team’s hold an annual St. Jude’s Trail Ride fundraiser to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. The drill team just asks them to make a donation for St. Jude’s. A drill team holds two a Jr. Drill fundraiser each year to help cover expenses. Fundraisers by other Drill Teams include fitness competitions, recitals, dinners, thons, product sales, auctions, restaurant nights, and holiday gift wrapping.
