With costly equipment that needs to be maintained to preserve player safety, not to mention travel and operational costs, fundraising is a necessary function of nearly all youth football organizations. Proudly, BRAX Fundraising was enlisted to do just that by helping 900 organizations raise more than $1.2 million in 2012.
Featured in this great article by our friends at USA Football were two of the 900 youth football organizations enlisted by BRAX Fundraising in 2012. Chicopee Youth Football Association in Springfield, MA raised more than $8,000 by selling 1,400 packs. League president, Zaki-Jabbar Robinson, attributes their success to the Sample Cups program and incentives to motivate players. He also suggests having a mobile or tablet device to show customers all the 3-D designs featured on the BRAX Fundraising website.
City of Fort Collins Football raised a whopping $33,700 with two consecutive BRAX Fundraising programs in 2011 and 2012. Their players sold door-to-door within their neighborhoods and over the Internet to family and friends and, in just three weeks, players and coaches from 82 teams sold 2,661 sets of cups. Marc Rademacher, Fort Collins Recreation Supervisor for Sports and Youth Programs, also emphasizes the importance of player incentives like drawings for prizes.
Congratulations everyone on your tremendous success in 2012. As the 2013 football season quickly approaches, we’re gearing up for another year of BIG profits, how about you?
