Fundraising is always an issue in budget-stretched schools
Maybe this is the perfect time to transform your gym into a basketball tournament space. After all, tournaments are great fundraising opportunities. Not only will you raise funds for your school with the event itself, there are numerous wrap-around potentials with concessions, merchandise, silent auctions, 50/50 draws, etc.
The success of any tournament begins and ends with planning and resources
Use custom QSD floor-to-rafters gym dividers to cross-section your full-court gym into multiple 3-on-3 courts. From practice to game day, your gym can be fully engaged.
Not sure where to start? Contact our knowledgeable advisors and see how easy and affordable it can be.
You could do this numerous times throughout the year with a number of different sports. 3-on-3 basketball is a great example, but so too are volleyball, badminton and floor hockey. Apply your creativity. Hold a Zumba-thon with pledges for how long your competitors can stay the course. Tournaments of any type can be lean, clean, volume machines.
Plan like a champion and you’ll reach your goals

Easy Fundraising Add-Ons
You’re already drawing a crowd. Why not engage them in the moment with easy fundraising add-ons? A 50/50 raffle is a great example. Whether to increase the overall fund, or to address a specific need in the community, the 50/50 is a great way to score addition dollars.
Simply set a ticket amount. Sell as many as you can on the day, and contribute 50% of the proceeds to the prize. This could be a single payout, or you could break it out into 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize (25%, 15% and 10% respectively). They’re fun, fast and they inject some friendly competition amongst the attendees.
You can even use them as audience drivers by doing a residential door-to-door campaign as a promotion for the actual event.
