In 23 years of coaching at the high school level, I know firsthand how tight budgets can be. I have been a part of many fundraising endeavors over the years ranging from labor auctions and golf tournaments to pancake feeds. Although all of these events proved to be profitable, they were also extremely labor-intensive and logistically challenging.
Deciding to work with Fundraising University has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. Our tickets have been widely supported throughout our community and are a very good money maker year in and year out. Bobby, Steve, and Tino have been extremely professional and a true pleasure to work with.
From a football coach’s perspective, fundraising has never been so easy and productive. I would highly recommend Fundraising University to any program looking to raise money.
As a wrestling coach, I understand how hard it is for our programs to get all of the items that we need in order to compete at a high level. With the help of Tino Martinez and Fundraising University, our wrestling team at York has been able to get all of our “wants” year in and year out!
We have worked with Tino for three years and every year the results have gotten better. We have sold cookie dough and it is a simple, easy process for the head coach. I would recommend going through Tino and Fundraising University for all of your fundraising needs.
For example, in the last three years we have been able to purchase the following items through our fundraiser:
- 50 sets of Under Armour sweats used for warm-ups
- 20 new Adidas finals singlets
- 40 Under Armour bags
- Coaches apparel for our wrestling staff
- 50 pairs of “fight shorts” as part of our warm-ups
- 150 team schedule posters for our team
As you can see, working with Tino Martinez and Fundraising University can really help your program out. Like all of you, we have many outside obligations (teaching, coaching other sports, family, etc.) that can’t require us to put a lot of time into fundraising activities. With Fundraising University, most of the work is done by Tino Martinez and your athletes. I would strongly encourage you to talk to Fundraising University on how they can help you today.
Working with Fundraising University has been a blessing. We have been able to raise much-needed funds for our program, but we have done so in a way that is consistent with what we already do! We have high expectations of our student/athletes; on a daily basis we hold them accountable for these expectations (on and off of the court)! We require our players to communicate, we get them outside of their comfort zones, we expect that they work as a team and they buy into the team, and most importantly we expect them to compete—everything that we do is competitive! We don’t believe that winning is the most important thing BUT we do believe that wanting to win and doing everything that you can possibly do to win ARE the most important things in this world! Fundraising University’s program enhances all of these things and the best part is that we have been (for 2 years straight) able to raise over $300 per player in our program without much of a time requirement from our coaching staff.
Selling the Fundraising U ticket over the last 10 years, we make anywhere from $13,000 – $16,000 a year on average.
They way the program is setup – it’s easy for me as a coach to put it together and it makes it a lot easier on the kids.
The best part of working with Fundraising University was their attention to detail, their ability to run the program well, their ease to work with, and their attention to what you need.
The best part of the Fundraising University fundraiser was the support and direction we had from our leader above us.
The best part of the fundraiser for us was the ease of how it was conducted and the timeline it was done.
