Gymnastics Fundraising Ideas

Lots of children and young people are joining gymnastic teams across the county. Gymnastics teaches strength, balance, grace and determination. A gymnastics team can hold a fundraiser for costumes, equipment, venue rental fees and venue improvements. Some teams need money for travel expenses to competitions. Still other teams use their talents to help out a local charity or to bring awareness to any number of causes. Whatever the need, successful fundraising events can be challenging to pull off.

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Bonney Lake, WA, Roach Gymnastics hosted a “Tumble for Autism” fundraiser in support of Washington Autism Alliance and Advocacy’s family and individual support programs. For a donation, the public was allowed to use the 22,000 square foot facility packed with real gymnastics equipment for three hours.In Australia, Lithgow shoppers saw some friendly faces locked up in the name of PCYC Gymnastics for the Time4kids annual fundraiser. From gymnasts to Lithgow’s mayor, they all took their turn of time in the lock-up. Armed with only a tin cup it was up to them to pursued passersby to donate and get them out. Fundraisers by other Gymnastics teams include cart wheel-a-thons, exhibitions, dinners, photo shoots, babysitting, restaurant nights, raffles, and product sales.

The clinic was for females interested in dance and cheer between six-years-old and eighth grade. Read more…

Charity Yard Sale – You know what they say…one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.
