All you need to hold this fundraiser is a field, a few footballs and a few strategically placed truck or car tires. The goal with this easy fundraiser is to see who can successfully throw a football from 20 yards away (or however far you want) through the tire. You can charge $10 for 10 attempts and have everyone that successfully gets 3 or more balls through the tire (out of 10 attempts) move on to a throw-off where the final winner is determined. We suggest you not allow actual team quarterbacks to participate, or at least make them throw from a farther distance.
Have cheerleaders available to cheer the contestants on! Find some sports-related sponsors for the event to provide prizes for the winners and generate some extra revenue. If you have a large number of participants, you can even print up some event t-shirts and sell them or include them with your event registration fee. You’ll want to start your event promotion at least 1-month in advance of your fist event if possible. Be sure to promote heavily on all your social media channels. Also, create posters and flyers that you can place throughout the community.
