What Our Customers Say
Super accessible and easy for everyone to navigate.
We raised over $1,000.
Working with Big Fundraising Ideas was easy! The product we received was of great quality. Definitely one of my favorite tumblers to use!
10/10 customer service and accessibility.
It was a great service. Unfortunately, our team did not sell a lot but the experience with the company was very smooth!
Great fundraising program, we will be using them again.
It was great.
This was a very easy fundraiser to hold. Everything was done online and if I had any questions, I received a quick response. Recommend!
We were very pleased with the products offered. The orders were processed quickly and accurately.
Super helpful staff, all questions answered immediately, simple to coordinate and execute.
It was so easy. Everything came in packaged with the team members name on it.
Experience was great! Communication and patience were the best especially with someone like me asking too many questions. Haha. However, shipping costs are quite a bit too much for 20 or less. Especially with Covid and so many people being out a job. Too many are hurting financially but would like to support but are not able to.
Our gym sold the edible cookie dough. The profits earned helped with the fees associated with the JamFest Super Nationals in Indianapolis, Indiana. Our overall experience was easy and pleasant.
How Do Cheerleader Fundraisers Work?
Cheer squads have lots of expenses, including uniform, camp, and competition fees. Groups raise more money selling products than any other type of fundraiser. That’s more than $1.5 billion annually.
To sell a product we offer 2 methods:
- Show a Product
- Take Brochure Orders
So how much product should you order? We provide a ‘Calculate Your Profit’ tool to help. Enter your group size and seller goal, and our calculator will tell you how much to order and your profit.
If you’re interested in a brochure fundraiser, we’ll send you everything you need free of charge. Each cheer member receives a brochure, order form, and money collection envelope.
After you’ve finished, send us your order forms. Once processed, we’ll send you an invoice and ship your merchandise. Each seller receives their prepacked order.
Your profit is the difference between the amount you collect and your invoice.

Cheerleader Fundraising Ideas & Tips:
- Have a formal kickoff meeting to discuss your sales goal with your squad.
- Tell students that any checks are payable to your organization.
- Remind your group to be positive and always smile when approaching people.
- Encourage your cheerleaders to break the sale down into daily selling goals.
- Remind students about the last day they can make sales and keep selling up until the very end.
Cheerleading fundraisers can be an enjoyable experience. They can be as competitive as the sport itself. It starts with a simple product to sell that will appeal to their friends, teachers, and parents. Consider gourmet popcorn, candy, or cookies.
For squad members, the real excitement is the cash and sportswear prizes.
One favorite prize incentive is cash. Some people give it out for good grades; others award it for doing a job. For your fundraiser, you’ll be giving it out to the cheerleaders who sell items to support your team. And the more they sell, the more they’ll earn!
Our cash prizes don't come from the team’s profit from the products. These incentive programs are tiered, meaning more sales earn higher prize levels. You can reward them directly or apply the cash toward their accounts.
Each also has a fun “early bird special” feature. This grants an extra $25 to the highest seller after the first day of fundraising! This helps get your sale off to a fast start.
Your students will love incentives like these that can put cash in their pockets and their team’s budget. Learn about the financial commitment of a cheerleader
The second incentive is various clothing options. Customize everything from hats to sweatshirts with your group’s name, logo, and colors.
‘Wear Your Spirit 15’, for example, gives students a chance to win prizes by selling fewer items. This means a lower fundraising profit, but it makes prizes more accessible. This has a tendency to encourage more selling.
‘Wear Your Spirit 20’ requires students to sell more to reach prize levels but yields a higher profit. These prizes make great bragging rights. Encourage everyone to wear them to competitions to show your squad's spirit and unity.
A fun way to promote your sale is to partner with other schools and create healthy competition. These products aren’t limited to just cheerleaders; they can be applied to any sports team. Ask your cheerleaders to encourage sales for other teams to get everyone in the spirit.
You can reveal the results at an annual homecoming week powder-puff football game. Or hold a school-wide tournament bracket to funnel money into your sports program. This is funding so all students can get involved.
The fastest way to accomplish these goals is through sales at the games. Offer $1 candy bars and pretzel rods that can be sold and consumed on the spot at games and events. People love goodies like these at the concession stand. They’ll also appreciate something individually wrapped.
Products like cookie dough, Cinnabon desserts, and coupon cards are fundraising classics. They can raise major money for your cheerleading squad. Consider your audience, timeline, and goals when choosing the perfect product.
