Fundraising Ideas - National Cheerleaders Week

Fundraising Ideas for National Cheerleading Week!

National Cheerleading Week is always the first week in March. In 2020, it falls on March 1 – 7. This is the perfect time to promote a fundraiser for your team. Push hard on this one week. You’re cheerleaders…so get excited about fundraising and cheer for more sales!

We recommend that your fundraiser includes some type of custom spirit product. There are many options, including tee shirts, socks, tumblers, eye black, noisemakers, and more. Personalize your products with your team name and logo.

We also recommend that you hold a raffle. Sell tickets all week and have your drawing on March 7. You could have a special event (fundraising dance?) for this, or if there is a game that day, announce the winner then. You could also just notify the winner by phone or email.

Another idea is to have a fundraising dance or supper on that Saturday. Promote it all week to get plenty of attendees. Be sure that you say that it is to celebrate Cheerleading Week and why you are raising funds. Maybe you could put on a cheer routine for your customers.

You can do one of these or combine them all together. For example, a dance fundraiser that includes spirit products for sale and a 50/50 raffle.
