How To Hack Your Hockey Fundraiser

July 14 2016

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

Hockey season is officially almost here, and even though kids and parents alike are super excited for the fun, the same question comes up time and time again; how am I going to pay for this? We all know hockey is expensive. Between the gear required to play, the ice time, team jerseys, and traveling games, parents often struggle to find the funds they need to get their player outfitted for the upcoming season. Not to mention when kids seem to grow out of their gear in five minutes flat and extra ice time is necessary, it's easy to see why so many teams need to fundraise.

Figuring out the best way to fundraise for your hockey team can be really challenging. While team events seem to work, they can take a lot of time and effort, and may end up costing the team instead of helping the bottom line. By shopping on FlipGive for your team, you can help alleviate some of the stress that come with the hockey season, and get some awesome new stuff in the process. Here's how to get the most from your fundraiser, from our team to yours:


Booking hotels:

Travelling with a sports team is no small feat, and it can cost a pretty penny for your whole team to stay in the same hotel. When you book your tournament stay with hotels.com, FlipGive gets you 5% cash back on that purchase. That means upwards of $2000 at EACH tournament. 



Need to rent a car for a tournament FlipGive gets you 10% cash back when you rent a car through www.carrental8.com, they even have larger vehicles for travelling teams! Mind blown right?


League outings:

Taking your whole team to an amusement park or sporting event? Book your tickets through FlipGive with groupon.com or razorgator.com and get up to $1000 dollars cash back for your team expenses. Why aren't you doing this already? 


Team parties: 

Take your team out to any of these establishments when you purchase a gift card through FlipGive, and get 10% cash back for your team. Ever wonder what the total bill is for feeding a whole team plus families? It's about $500 cash back. 


Team gear: 

Choose from high end brands like Nike or custom outfitters like alliedshirts.com and get up to 25% back for your fundraiser. How much cash back are you leaving on the table this season?
