    Anyone here involved with their kid's school archery team? My step son's school is trying to get their archery team in better shape as far as equipment goes. So we are planning to do a fundraiser and possibly ask for donations from archery/outdoors related companies. I am just looking for a little guidance as this is new to me. Thanks

    Raffles work good. Maybe a bow or gun.

    If you aren't too far from Lexington, MyOldKentucky chocolates usually sell pretty good. You get to keep about 50% of what you sell. But beware - make sure you have some positive control on the finances. You would be amazed at how many kids take a bag of 20 bars, and bring you back money for 18 and don't know what happened to the other two lost bars (as they breathe on you with chocolate scented breath)!

    Go to your local Stihl chainsaw dealer and they should give you a good deal on a chainsaw. These raffle really well

    I reached out to Yeti and they offered a good discount on their products. I may get one of their coolers to raffle off.

    Do you all host any NASP events? You can make good money by hosting some shoots then put on a silent raffle? I'm certified NASP instructor but don't teach/coach at this time but always getting emails from our regional reps looking for host schools.

    One of our archery/gun dealers gave me a Genesis Bow for free. Ask around to local businesses for different items to raffle off.

    Krogers ... krogers has a program where patrons can tie their plus cards to a local charity, the charity benefits everytime the person buy groceries using the plus card, It may only amount to a trickle, but it is a constant trickle and takes very little effort on anyones part, it like free money. I suggest looking into it, our kids band and athletic team both participated in this program.

    Get the members or members family donate items for a auction. It can be most anything large or small. All you need is a place to hold one and a place to store things as they are brought in. The local VFW gave up a large room for a week when we did one for the marching band. Moose club did it when our archery club was raising money to buy more property. As any auction it depends on what you have to sell and the number of people there.
