How To Run A Bowling Tournament Fundraiser

November 2 2017

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.

Hosting a bowling tournament is a big fundraising project to take on, so make sure you have a team of volunteers available to help you throughout the planning process. Here’s everything you need to know.


Find a venue for your fundraiser

Talk to local bowling alleys and see if they will help your team or cause by donating their space to your fundraiser. Hosting your fundraiser during an off-time (Saturday or Sunday mornings) could help you secure a venue for free or at a reduced cost. Make sure that the venue is large enough for your participants, as there are usually spectators that come to fundraising tournaments like this. 


Secure sponsorships for your fundraiser

Talk to the local businesses in your community and ask them if they would be interested in sponsoring your event. Make sure that you have a template prepared for tiers of sponsorships for your fundraising campaign. 


Have an online platform so that your teams can fundraise

Teams should have to raise a minimum amount of money in order to participate in your fundraising event. You’re going to want to include all expenses in this raise number. For example, usually teams expect to be outfitted for tournaments, factor this into your fundraiser’s cost. Teams can use FlipGive. com to raise money for their individual teams, or any other fundraising platform that allows friends and family of participants to easily give to the team of their choice. 


Earn cash back on the food for your tournament

Earn up to 10% cash back when you get pizza, wings, and tons of other takeout options for your tournament through a FlipGive campaign.
