Fundraising for sports clubs & societies

here are many ways for sports clubs and societies to raise funds, some of the most well-known being donations from individuals, traditional fundraising events, larger events like annual dinners, charity auctions, gifts in memory and fundraising from personal challenges.

All of these fundraising activities are valuable and as an sports club it is worth taking time to explain how members can help raise funds and what’s involved. Setting up a page on your website is a great place to start. This page should include all the essential details and give tips on the best approach. You can also promote fundraising more traditionally using posters and leaflets in your facility.

Money raised through fundraising provides vital funds to sports clubs & societies to make a difference in the experience of members, players and supporters.

There is also a very valuable way of generating helpful recurring funds that many sports clubs are taking advantage of… a lottery. Lotteries allow sports clubs to raise money from the public in a way that has broad appeal. The added incentive of a prize enables clubs and societies to engage with those who may otherwise not donate and gain new supporters.

Woods Valldata has helped numerous small charities and sports clubs to raise significant amounts of money through Affinity Lottery, and it has the advantage of being simple and inexpensive to set up and run.
