This fundraiser gives your supporters an opportunity to donate to your organization based on your players participating in a Lift-a-Thon. We’ve created this fundraiser using a team average of 1,000 lbs lifted per player. Don’t worry, your organization can easily decrease or increase the average amount of weight lifted per player and adjust donation amounts accordingly.
Lift-a-Thons give your team the opportunity to raise significant money and have a great time doing it together. Here’s how to get started:
Select this fundraiser and provide some basic information. If you would like to track your progress by sub-groups like grade level or JV and Varsity for example, you can easily do this during your set-up. Your players will then register for that particular group and you’re ready to start.
Customize your Fundraising Webpage
This fundraiser is ready to go as we’ve created it, but we encourage you to customize your webpage with photos, video, a message to supporters and more. This site allows your supporters to donate to your Lift-a-Thon online and avoid managing cash and checks.
Promoting your Fundraiser
TeamWorks provides all of the tools needed to run a highly effective fundraiser. Your players can share their site using our built-in integrations to Facebook, email, and more. All monies raised from each participant’s site will be attributed to the appropriate person and group.
This fundraiser is based on your team setting a Team Goal of lifting an average of 1,000 pounds per player spread across a number of lifts. Each participant will be responsible to raise money by asking supporters to donate a certain amount of money based on 1,000 lbs. lifted as team average per player. This template has been created with donation amounts of $10, $25, $50, $75 and $100 or your supporters can enter an alternate amount. You can adjust this fundraiser to fit your needs by editing the average pounds lifted, donation per pound and more. Your Supporters are essentially donating to each player in advance of the event, and therefore you will not need to go back to each supporter and collect money as that has been done upfront using TeamWorks.
This is a fun and successful fundraiser for your team and all of your players. The TeamWorks solution allows you to track progress as a team and for individual players. Offer incentives to your players for fundraising performance and use TeamWorks to help you track their performance against team goals. We will be sending you periodic emails to offer advice and our Fundraising Coaches are always ready to help you with any questions that you have.
