Top 8 Product Fundraiser Ideas for Baseball Teams

Product fundraisers are the quickest and easiest way for sports teams to raise a lot of money. Players generally have access to a wide network of friends, family, neighbors, and fans whom they can reach out to for support. In exchange, supporters receive something in return for their donation, from quality apparel and home items, to gourmet snacks and treats. It’s win-win! Let’s take a look at our fave product fundraiser ideas for your baseball team.

Nuts about sports fundraising program

1) Nuts About Sports Fundraiser

From ball park hot dogs to the classic “peanuts and cracker jack”, snacking is woven into the fabric of baseball. In fact, simply hearing the crack of a bat coming into contact with a ball or the sound of organ music can be enough to set some tongues a-wagging. Take advantage of this association by offering your supporters a varied selection of nuts, trail mix, and candy with or top sports-themed fundraiser.

Each player receives a free order-taker with tantalizing photos of over 20 quality products, including sweet treats, savory snacks, and mouthwatering sweet-salty combos. Supporters place their orders and pay in advance, meaning there are no upfront costs for your team. And with 50% of profits going directly to you, this snack fundraiser is a real home run.

Scratch card fundraiser

2) Customize It With A Scratch & Help Discount Card Sports Fundraiser

This is the best fundraiser for sports teams that are always on the go. Small enough to fit in the pocket of your jeans or equipment bag, it’s got some impressive stats. As a bonus, we’ll even give you 20% free cards for every order of 10+ cards, allowing your team to keep up to 100% of profits! How’s that for batting a thousand?

How does it work? Each participant has a set of cards each containing scratch dots worth anywhere between $0.50 to $3. Donors scratch one or more dots and pay the total amount revealed. As a reward, they receive a coupon card with up to $50 in savings.

Both the scratch cards and the coupon cards are entirely customizable, too. Send us your team’s name and logo and we’ll print them right on the cards. You can also join our Local Customize-It! Program, allowing you to add your town’s favorite local merchants to the coupon cards. It’s great for community involvement, as well as adding value for your donors.

Beef stick fundraiser

3) Jack Link’s Beef Sticks For Hungry Sports Fans

Almost like a ball park hot dog – without the ball park price – Jack Link’s beef sticks are perfect for selling at baseball games, tailgate parties, and rallies. Or you can pair it with another fundraiser to give your revenue a significant boost.

Because you order your products in advance, you’ll have them on hand to sell wherever there’s a crowd. Each case contains 8 carriers with 50 sticks each. You can order as little as 1 case and shipping is absolutely free. You might want to order more, though: priced at $1-$2, this protein-filled, healthy alternative to candy will be a swing and a hit!

Cookie dough fundraiser

4) Gourmet Cookie Dough – The Most Popular Sports Fundraiser

America’s favorite pastime meets America’s favorite snack. Cookie dough has been our most popular fundraiser across the board for quite a few years, and it’s no wonder why. Our wide selection of gourmet cookie dough is simply irresistible.

Featuring a mix of classic and unexpected flavors, as well as an assortment of formats, there’s something to satisfy the cookie monster in all of us. Plus, we’ve added not one but two $10 cookie dough fundraisers to our roster. This will allow your team to reach an even greater number of donors who want to contribute but need a lower-cost option. And finally, with online fundraising, getting your mitts on the sweet stuff just got easier.

Popcorn fundraiser program

5) Gourmet Popcorn – A Baseball Staple

Popcorn has always been big with the baseball crowd – it’s even mentioned in baseball’s most famous song. Why not offer your supporters this delicious classic treat so they can enjoy it at home while watching the big leagues on television – or better yet, in the stands watching your team play live.

Donors can choose between 7 succulent savory and/or sweet flavors. And at $10 a tub, you can bet many will choose more than one. Even with this low price, a team of 15 players can easily raise a lot of money in just a few weeks. In fact, to reach $1000, each player only has to sell 17 items. That’s not such a difficult feat for a product that basically sells itself!

Face mask fundraiser

6) Keep Your Baseball Team And Fans Healthy With A Custom Face Mask Fundraiser

No one knows how just long the COVID-19 pandemic will be around. However, it’s becoming increasingly clear that masks are key for preventing the spread and ultimately keeping the virus under control. And the sooner people make face masks an essential part of their wardrobe, the sooner we can take ourselves out to the ball game once again.

This is as good a reason as any to support your face mask fundraiser. Add in custom masks with your school colors, name, and logo, and there’s even more reason to buy! For a small set-up fee, we’ll design a custom brochure for your baseball fundraiser, featuring an assortment of face masks. These include your custom designs as well as other stylish and fun generic prints.

Allowing your supporters to show solidarity with your team while performing their civic duty to keep everyone safe? We’d say that’s hitting it out of the park.

tshirt fundraiser

7) Go Major League With A Baseball T-Shirt Fundraiser

This fundraiser is perfect for baseball teams with a lot of fans, such as high school and college teams. They’re also a hit with beer leagues (the more ironic the better). Finally, they pair quite well with event fundraisers, both as a way to commemorate the event and to bolster profits.

Choose from two quality fabrics (100% cotton on cotton blend). As for the design, you can either pick from our selection of premade designs, or submit your own design at no additional cost.

Not only will your fans love this fundraiser, your team gets to keep up to 60% profit. That means up to $12 per t-shirt! Pro tip: organize a t-shirt signing event after a big game to raise even more money!

Online fundraisers

8) Run An Online Fundraiser To Net Your Baseball Team Even More Profits!

COVID-19 is a whole new ball game. And, like everything else, the fundraising industry has had to adapt. The silver lining is that many aspects of life and business have adapted to become easier and more accessible. We didn’t think product fundraising could get any easier, either, but here we are!

Now, your supporters can buy cookie dough, popcorn, nuts and snacks, and custom face masks right from their own devices. And with the share button on social media reaching a far greater number of people than the traditional door-to-door strategy, your profits stand to go through the roof!

Worried about losing that personal touch? Don’t be. Buyers can specify at the time of purchase which team member they are supporting. Plus, since we ship to a singular location, distribution of items is left up to you. This gives your team the opportunity to (safely) thank supporters in person, or to leave a note of gratitude with each order.

Top 8 Unique DIY Fundraiser Ideas For Baseball Teams

Event fundraisers are generally more involved than product fundraisers in terms of planning and execution. However, they are important for promoting teamwork and for strengthening ties within the community. Here are some the best DIY baseball fundraiser ideas for helping your team reach its financial goals and build lasting connections.

DIY baseball fundraising ideas

1) Mini Golf Tournament Fundraiser

Golf tournaments are a staple in sports fundraising, but are often expensive affairs geared toward adults. A mini golf fundraiser allows you to tap into the spirit of a golf tourney, but with a more family-friendly vibe.

There are several ways you can go about it. You might ask your venue to donate a portion of admission sales to your cause. Or you can request to take over the concession stand. You can also choose to sell raffle tickets for donated prizes, or simply set up a donations table.

Another way to raise money is to get local merchants to sponsor a hole. Charge anywhere from $10 to $100 per hole in exchange for advertising each business at “their” hole. You can up the ante by asking sponsors to double their donation for each hole in one their hole gets.

2) Car Wash – A Sports Team Fundraiser Favorite

Those strong baseball-throwing arms are perfect for scrubbing mud and muck from the filthiest of fenders. Plus, people are drawn to the wholesome sight of a charity car wash. It harkens back to simpler times when kids played outside and things moved a bit more slowly.

People tend to get peckish while they wait, so take advantage by pairing it with a bake sale or a product fundraiser. $1 candy coated pretzel rods or fortune cookies are the perfect add-on to your car wash fundraiser. They’re an easy sell, and can add up to quite a bit of extra cash at the end of the day.

3) Hit-A-Thon Fundraiser

Batter up! This is one of the most popular baseball fundraiser ideas – if it ain’t broke, right? This event allows players to showcase their skills while bringing in some serious coin. Participants simply collect pledges from their social network, either per hit or per foot. At the time of the event, each player gets 10 pitches. The total number of hits or feet is calculated and supporters are charged according to their pledge.

The level of planning required for this fundraiser depends on how elaborate you want to make it. You can simply hold the event during regular practice and stream it online. Or you might want to make it a community event. For this, you’ll need to advertise as well as provide refreshments and team merch (which are great for adding to your bottom line).

4) Youth Baseball Camp Fundraiser

Parents are often left with the question of what to do with their children during the summer months. Your team can help lighten their childcare load, all while introducing a new generation of kids to America’s favorite game.

You can make it a week-long event, or hold it once a week for the duration of the summer. We like the latter option as it gives kids the opportunity to practice on their own between sessions and really improve their skills. Plus, you can organize an end-of-summer tournament/neighborhood cookout. Kids get the thrill of showing off the skills they’ve learned, and your team gets an extra opportunity to fundraise through food, drink, and t-shirt sales.

5) Ball Park Cookout Fundraiser

Is there anything that goes together better than baseball and grills? Turn one of your games into a food and fun-filled bash for the whole community. All you need are a few grills, some volunteers to man the grills (what are parents for?), and some tasty eats. Local grocery stores are usually more than willing to support youth sports clubs by offering food and supplies either for free or at a deep discount, usually in exchange for some signage.

You can raise money by charging admission, through food and drink sales, or both. Boost revenue by selling raffle tickets for a 50/50 cash prize, or an item donated by one of your sponsors. Jersey Watch has a great article on how to find sponsorship and which national chains support youth sports teams.

6) Heads Or Tails Game

This easy game is the perfect add-on to an auction, cookout, or similar community event. Have volunteers circulate throughout your event to recruit participants and advertise your prize. Your participation fee will depend on the type of event and crowd, as well as the quality of the prize. Once you have enough participants, your host can get things going.

Have participants gather or stand at their seats. Then, instruct them to choose heads or tails by placing their hands on their heads or their tails. Your host then flips a coin, and the participants who guessed correctly move on to the next round. Repeat until there is one person left standing.

To get a full rundown on how the game works as well as ways to crank up the drama – and profits – check out this article.

7) All-Star Baseball Calendar

Give your team the all-star treatment by having them be the merch! Have a volunteer with a keen eye and a good camera (or smartphone!) take action shots and candid pics of your team having fun throughout the season. You can then work with a company that specializes in custom calendars, or, if you have a graphic designer in your midst, ask them to donate their time. Your local print shop might also be willing to offer you a discount if they know it’s a fundraiser.

While calendars make a great gift for the holidays, this is a hot item any time of year. Concerned about upfront costs involved in making a calendar? Consider pre-selling copies to friends and family to cover the costs.

8) Rent-A-Baseball-Team Fundraiser

Set aside a weekend or two during which your team helps out community members with various household tasks. Leave the offer open-ended and let participants get creative. From cleaning gutters to stacking wood, to painting fences, and weeding gardens, your team can help friends and neighbors accomplish tasks they’ve been putting off.

Charge by the hour or by the task, and make things easier on yourselves by advertising your event on social media and having “clients” book in advance. Safety tips for minors: always send athletes out in groups of two or three. If they don’t require adult supervision, it’s still a good idea to have them frequently check in via text or phone.

With a bit of planning and a lot of heart, you’re sure to knock it out of the park with your fundraising efforts this season. Check us out here for more baseball fundraiser ideas, as well as pro tips and tricks for planning the perfect sports fundraiser!
