Having limited funds forces us to be resourceful with the materials we have. Once you add up the cost of the field, building materials and competition entrance fees the price is easily
in the thousands. The only way to compensate this is to fundraise, a few weeks ago we stood outside our local grocery store and told people about our team’s mission and asked for donations. In about six hours we raised $500. We broke up the six hours into three shifts with two to three members of “Hyper Nike” at a time for two hours each. I consider this one of the most successful and simple ways to earn money for your team. Another ongoing fundraiser we have is hot chocolate sales, every Friday a few members from the team sell it for a dollar a piece. This past Friday was the first time we’ve done it and kids have already been asking us when they can get more. The most effective ways of raising funds are simple but successful, hundreds of dollars can be raised in only a few hours. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
