Fundraising Event: Basketball Tournament

Basketball-Wallpaper-Free-DownloadA fundraising event that could bring in a lot of revenue and community involvement is a basketball or volleyball game or tournament. Consider:

  • Alumni Team vs HS Varsity Team
  • Parent Team vs Alumni Team
  • HS Varsity Team vs Parent Team

For a basketball tournament or game, consider including a small dunk contest or a free throw contest (perhaps with an audience vote) to increase entertainment for the spectators.

  • Ask the players to volunteer their time
  • Charge admission
  • Keep concession stand open (to increase fundraising efforts during the game)
  • Ask businesses to match an amount raised by the community for the game
  • Ask for sponsors of the game or of a player, in return the sponsor will get their name in the program

4A successful example of this fundraiser is Laurel High School. Their goal was to raise $5,000 to $7,000. They ended up raising over $48,000. Read their story!
