What Our Customers Say
Responsive and easy.
Who doesn't love cookies? The product sells itself and is a no brainer for easy fundraising.
Found this product a bit harder to get people on board with to sell. However, those that worked on spreading word and product information say better responses.
Communication was great. Everything was done through email but they were very quick and fast responses. I appreciated the no nonsense, process that took place.
Customer service was just what our organization needed to assist setting up a new account and trying a new product.
We had a wonderful experience with Big Fundraising Ideas. Clay Boggess was very helpful and explained the fundraising process in detail. The products were good quality. I would recommend them for your fundraising needs.
Big Fundraising Ideas provides exceptional service! Anything that was missing or damaged also had a quick turnaround. Great job!
The quality and school spirited design sold itself and allowed us to purchase and outfield fence!
They made our fundraiser very simple and easy to spread the word about our stainless steel fundraiser.
Worked well, we just started late and behind the "8" ball. Last year we had right at 3 weeks to sell. This year we had sale at a time we really were not ready or planned for. Overall the experience was very good.
Online with direct shipping worked great. We would have liked to offered cookie dough but didnt want to have to deliver or get pick up etc.
When I inquired about the fundraiser, Clay was very quick and responsive, guided me through the whole process from start to end. Selling cookies wasn’t hard as everyone loves cookies. Being able to share the website and Clay and team handling shipping etc was a lot of pressure off of me so I can focus on coaching. At the end of the sale I received the payment.
The beef jerky was well received in our area.
All feedback has been positive from this fundraiser. We appreciate the collaboration and will let you know about our plans for next year once we review all fundraising results from this year. Thank you very much!
How Do Sports Fundraisers Work?
11 million students nationwide take part in interscholastic sports. But with a lack of funding, many districts have to deal with the dilemma of cutting athletic programs.
High school coaches and booster clubs alike depend on sports fundraising ideas. They use the money to pay for things like travel expenses and equipment.
Product sales are the #1 fundraising source for schools. Roughly 80% of the money raised comes from selling items like wrapping paper and cookie dough. It’s safe to say that product fundraisers work.
We offer two ways sports groups can raise money selling products. They can take orders from a brochure or order a product and sell it.
If you choose to take orders, each student receives a brochure, order form, and money envelope. Once your sale ends, send us the order forms, and we’ll process, pack, and ship your merchandise. You’ll also receive a sales report and invoice.
Selling a product directly to your customers involves submitting a purchase order. Once your product delivers, you’ll have 15 days to pay your invoice. This will give you time to collect the money.

Questions About Sports Fundraisers
Try a discount card fundraiser. You can promote your youth sports league while saving people money. Consider offering five cards at signup and including the cost in the registration fee. Then parents can sell the cards independently and make back the money.
Many groups sell customized products with their school’s name, colors, and logo. This helps promote school pride and unity.
Consider selling scratch cards where your group makes up to 90% profit. Other popular choices include cookie dough and popcorn.
Consider products that are easy for students to sell to each other. Lollipops, beef jerky, and candy bars are big sellers. Pricing starts at $1 each.
Consider offering extra incentives where players can earn special privileges for selling. One idea is no running after practice if they reach a specific goal for that day.
Sports Fundraising Ideas & Tips
- Use our ‘Calculate Your Profit’ tool to determine how much each player needs to sell and your order size.
- Schedule a kickoff meeting to explain the process and your sales expectations.
- Set a start and end date and remind your students daily to sell.
- Tell your athletes that all checks are payable to your organization.

Teams are all about spirit and unity! The fun part about sports fundraising is that many of our products are 100% customizable to your team. We have products and prizes that can show team support and help your players reach their sales goals.
From school tumblers to sportswear prizes, your fundraiser will be a home run!
Fundraisers for sports groups are all about team spirit. And that starts with getting players and sellers excited for the cause. Usually, this is easy. Your goal might be a district championship or even a state title, which is the ultimate quest.
This common goal shifts the focus toward accountability of your hard-earned quest. Whatever the reason, excitement over a shared cause creates a sense of unity. This is the recipe for a strong sale. See ten reasons why high school sports benefit students.
Speaking of recipes, food fundraisers are an easy sell at school sporting events. Try walking the stands with Popcornopolis. Or hit them up near the water fountains with the Premier Cookie Collection. Talk with the school about setting up a concession stand and selling during games.
For the parents and teachers at the game, try selling beef & cheese sticks. It's healthier and can keep them satisfied into the last inning or final quarter. Another great idea for a snack is to plan for traveling games. Options like beef sticks or turkey & cheese will energize your team after a long bus ride. Encourage everyone to stock up on treats like these during the fundraiser.
Customized school tumblers are easy sellers to teachers and parents affiliated with your team. Or anyone who's simply supportive of the school's sports program. Who doesn't want to show a little school pride?
With your school's colors and logo printed on the side, you'll grab attention wherever you take it. Athletes will feel support from seeing these items throughout the school. They'll thrive with encouragement.
Discount card fundraisers are another fun way to customize your sale. You can select local businesses and restaurants that you think people will enjoy. Families and athletes can celebrate at a local restaurant after their big win!
With sports team fundraising, there's a lot of motivation. You want to raise the money so you can hit your goals. If this wasn't enough, we also have prize programs to inspire your athletes to leave it all on the field. Cash or custom sportswear are exceptional prizes to boost your sale.
Athletes will appreciate the chance to earn sports gear representing their team or perhaps to earn some spending money for the trip to the big game.
