Youth sports leaders have so much on their plate! It is a real challenge sometimes to work through all the different items that need to be accomplished for an organization to operate. Then after all of that is complete, the topic of fundraising gets brought up. What do you do since you are already stretched thin?
Understanding Your Bandwidth
It is important in any industry to know what you can do and what you can't do from a time perspective. After all, with only 24 hours in a day you need to sleep. Most youth sports professionals are working their role in a part-time capacity as well. Therefore, your time is likely split between your "regular" day job. Therefore, you must be willing to find support to help accomplish the things that you and/or your organization need to accomplish. This might include paving a parking lot, installing baseball diamonds, or buying new soccer goals. You may not have the financial support needed to accomplish these goals. You also might not have the experience or the comfortability needed to craft sponsorship/donation related collateral. Never fear because we are firm believers that if you Google something long enough you can find a solution that is already put together and helping organizations just like yours.
