Whether you need to subsidise the next tour or revamp the team kit, these ideas are sure to kick-start your fundraising.
Approach local businesses which may be of interest to your members and supporters and ask them if they would be prepared to sponsor the team in return for advertising pitch-side/on your website/on your social media channels.
Host a rugby-themed quiz at your clubhouse or in a local pub. Hold a raffle on the same evening and sell tickets as you collect people’s entry money to make this fundraiser even more lucrative.
If your finest club kickers also have an aptitude for teaching their skills to others, ask them to participate in a tuition session open to members and non-members alike. Charge a small fee to attendees and, if it goes well, you could make it a regular event.
If your team is based in England, apply to the RFU to see if they will help you reach your next fundraising goal. Whether you need a bit of new equipment for the pitch or a full makeover for your home ground, it’s worth asking if they can help you out.
Get your team posing for the camera and create a club calendar that you can sell to members, supporters and locals to raise extra funds. Make it a bit more lucrative by asking different local businesses to sponsor each month of the year, in exchange for printing their logo in the calendar and thanking them on your website and social media pages.
