23 Feb How To Get Started Raising Funds For A New Turf Field
Field sports teams from high school to college know that a playing surface can make-or-break success. Old fields may make players more susceptible to injury, and worn-out areas will look bad to fans and opposing teams.
For several decades now, alternatives to natural grass have been developed to solve these ongoing problems for players and field managers. Nowadays, it’s becoming equally as common to find teams playing on artificial turf as it is to see them on natural grass.
But it’s no secret that replacing an entire sports field will cost more than many schools can contribute. In those cases, teams and field managers can try some of these techniques to get fundraising started.
Get A Committee Together For Support
A booster club can be a tremendous asset when it comes to raising money for a turf sports field. Work in tandem to set up a dedicated entity that will be responsible for all funds related to the project as a way to let donors know their money will only be used for it.
Start Reaching Out To Alumni
You never know what past graduate is out there, willing to help your team reach their dream of a new field. Work with the school to share your fundraising project with the greater community; even small donations will start adding up.
Look Out For Grant Opportunities
Seek out local, federal, and state grants to boost your fundraising efforts. There are also a number of individual corporations offering private grants in a specific area. In fact, USA Football provides a field-building grant that offers $50,000 towards the cost of converting a field to synthetic turf.
