Creative Cheerleading Fundraising Ideas

Jul 9, 2008
There are many things you can do if you are looking for creative ways to raise money for your cheerleading squad. Many of these different fundraisers include a bake sale, a car wash, or a yard sale.

Whether your cheerleading squad needs funds for new uniforms, giveaways for that upcoming pep rally or travel to away games for your school team, a fundraiser can get your squad the money it needs. If your squad is short on funds, it can put a damper on the fun and school spirit of your rallies and events.

A great fundraiser for your cheerleading squad is to have a bake sale. Each cheerleader can bake something different to bring to the sale; cookies, pie, cake or their own specialty. You can then sell these baked goods to raise money for your squad. Bake sales tend to do very well - after all, it's hard to resist fresh baked treats. If you have your bake sale at a sporting event, it is sure to be a hit.

A yard sale can be a great fundraising idea for your cheerleading squad. You will need a little assistance from some adults to pull off a successful yard sale, but parents of cheerleading squad or team members will be glad to help. Many of these parents will have items to donate to your yard sale fundraiser.

Many people have garages packed with things that they can donate. This helps people clean out their garage at the same time they are helping your cheerleading squad get the money you need.

If you have a lot of people donate items then you will need to have a big enough location to hold the sale or the event. The school might let you use the auditorium. You also might consider the school parking lot or a field. You also might have someone on your team that has a big driveway or yard at their home and willing to let you use the property for the sale. When the sale is over you also have to consider what will happen to all of the things that don't sell. You cannot just leave them on the premises and you have to find a place for them. You should find someone with a truck who is willing to help you get the items to the nearest Goodwill or place that you can donate them to.

A carwash can also help you to raise needed funds for your cheerleading squad. A local gas station may be willing too let you hold this event and let you use their hoses and parking lot for your fundraiser. Since yours is a good cause, you will likely get permission to do this - then you'll just need soap, signs, hoses and volunteers to wash cars.

There are many ways you can earn money for your cheerleading squad if funds are low for your program this year. You just have to be creative in your thinking.
