Sports fundraising can be a challenging task, particularly for small organizations and teams that may not have a large budget or a strong support network. Traditional fundraising methods like car washes, gift cards, discount cards, coupon books, silent auction, and bake sales can be effective, but they can also be time-consuming, labor-intensive, and limited in their reach. In recent years, however, fundraising apps have emerged as a new option to help sports teams and organizations raise funds quickly, easily, and effectively. That’s where Scoreboard comes in!

In 2015, Paul, the president of Scoreboard, had been fundraising with his own kids. He realized how disconnected and inefficient the entire effort was. That was what started Paul on this journey. Those troubles led to the first version of our mobile app. We soon realized that the problems Paul and his group faced were not unique. Since that time, Scoreboard Fundraising has proven to be a game changer for programs and the leaders and coaches involved. Fundraising is now much easier, more effective, and it allows groups to get back to doing what they love.

Quick and Easy for Participants

According to Forbes, “fundraising apps make donating to your favorite organizations quick and easy, regardless of location.” This accessibility and convenience is one of the biggest advantages of using our fundraising app. With our mobile app, supporters can easily donate to youth sports teams, sports program, or any organization anytime, anywhere, using their mobile device or tablet. This means that teams have an easy way to reach a wider audience, beyond just their local community members or family members. And the best part, supporters can contribute from the comfort of their own homes. The convenience of a fundraising app also means that teams and organizations can set up their fundraising campaign quickly and easily, without the need for extensive planning or resources.

Easy for Supporters to Give

TechSoup adds that “with mobile apps, supporters can donate quickly and easily, without the need to write a check or visit a fundraising website.” Our fundraising app streamlines the donation process, making it easy for supporters to give. Unlike traditional fundraising methods that require cash or checks, Scoreboard allows potential donors to make secure, digital payments using a debit or credit card. This not only makes the donation process faster and more efficient, but it also provides an added layer of security for both the team and the donor. Using the app also makes having an online shopping fundraiser a great option and a great way to maximize your fundraising efforts.

In addition to accessibility and convenience, Scoreboard offers a level of customization and personalization that traditional fundraising methods can’t match. With our mobile app, teams and organizations can create personalized campaigns that reflect their unique mission and fundraising goal. Not only can athletic programs and athletic departments set up the team’s page with a unique message, but team members can also personalize their donation page with their own photo. This level of customization can help teams and organizations stand out in a crowded fundraising landscape and attract more support.

Social Media Integration

Our Scoreboard fundraising app also integrates with social media platforms like Facebook. This means that teams and organizations can leverage the power of social media to reach a wider audience and engage with supporters in new ways. Social media also allows teams to share updates and progress reports on their fundraising campaigns, keeping supporters informed and engaged throughout the process. With built in reminders, the app helps you raise the most money for your entire team.
