So set up a friendly competition with everyone on the team, squadron or club to see who sells the most raffle tickets and cards.

Try these extra 5 fun booster club drive suggestions this year
Yes! These will work whether you have a cheer team or a sports team and everything in between, because our school boosters club drive programs work.
Here is our top ten list of best events and options for your members to try:
1. Car Wash
This is a great spring fundraiser for booster clubs. Wash the dirt, grime and salt stains off your car from this last winter.
- Advertise this like crazy in your community. Text. call and post on social media.
- Furthermore, do it in an area that has lots of drive-by traffic.
- Get the students to hold up signs advertising your car wash fundraiser.
- Additionally you can offer a FREE car wash to a local influencer in exchange for free advertising. For, example, give a free wash to the local pastor at your church so he encourages everyone to support your school fundraising event.
- Finally, sell bottled water and individual pretzel rods for $1 each to make extra money.
Bonus tip. Consider selling tickets for a free car wash that people can gift to a friend. Stop after washing someone’s car to ask if they would like to buy a carwash for someone else as a gift.
Here is a secret… Don’t be surprised if 40% of the tickets are never redeemed. So this means you will make even more money, get paid up front, and won’t have to do the work later.
There are local businesses in your community that would love to advertise on your booster club website, newsletter, or during your next tournament.
For example, let’s say you have a baseball booster club. Do you have a local sports store in your neighborhood? Do you think they might want to signup and advertise to families that love to play baseball? BINGO!
You are only limited by your creative thinking to find local advertisers. Want another idea? A hungry family will want to go out to eat after a baseball game. Do you think a restaurant might want this extra business?
Baseball playing students like to play in their home back yard. Do you think that some parents might respond to an ad from a local landscaping company? What if they promised to make your backyard grass look like your very own baseball field?
Now the rest is up to you!
3. Host a cook out fundraiser in your community
You want to find hungry people for this school club fundraiser. So, contact a local Sam’s Club or Walmart and ask if you can sell hot dogs and hamburgers outside to raise money for your booster club.
I promise the smell of hot dogs and burgers cooking will attract a lot of hungry customers in the parking lots!
An alternate to this is to talk with local restaurants and set up a party restaurant night fundraiser. This makers sense because many families go out to eat anyway. You can now eat out and raise money after your sports team has a practice night.
4. Yard work
There is enough yard work in your neighborhood for your club to raise money all year long with just a little elbow grease and no specialized skills needed.
For example, here are a few thoughts to get you started:
- Mowing lawns
- Raking leaves
- An finally shoveling snow in the winter.
Do you think there might be some people in your community that would be glad to make a donation for your helping with their yard work? Of course there are!
- Make yard work fliers up. Tell the story why you are having this fundraising event. Then hand them out in your neighborhood.
- Keep a list of people that want yard work done. This way you can help them next school year too.
5. Tournament Event
Think about your school team or school club members. Now think of a tournament that you can create that would be lots of fun. With a little creativity and planning you can make a tournament for your school club too. HINT: Golf is a popular event with many people in the community.
How can you make money with a tournament?
For instance, some boosters charge an admission for everyone. However, charging admission is only one way to monetize your tournament event. Because other schools may charge an entry fee if someone wants to participate in the games too. And still others sell advertising, refreshments and award prizes or cash also. You can also sell shirts based on the tournament. Shirt sales can be an extra stream of income for your team members.

“Professional, courteous, and helpful- those are the top 3 words I can find to describe the good people over at Fundraisingzone.com. I was a little nervous at first because I’m new to fundraising. They really showed us how easy it could be. I recommend them to anyone interested in running a successful fundraiser.”

What is the purpose of a booster-club?
The purpose of a school booster club is to help solicit money to support the school club or team. Since many school budgets have been cut, it is up to the booster parents to raise the necessary funds so the students can participate in the school program. Our fundraising catalogs allow your booster to earn up to a 50% profit on each sale.
What does the boosterclub’s president do?
The booster club parent presides over all meetings. Furthermore, they appoint committees and make sure the booster operates by its bylaws. Our fundraising brochure will allow you to raise the money you need while abiding by your bylaws, as well as any state regulations.
What is a basketball booster?
A basketball booster club operates to support the players on the team and ensure they have what they need to play and compete against other school teams. They raise funds to offset uniforms costs, equipment, team trips, and any tournament fees. Our program may be exactly what you are looking for.
