Fundraiser 2014

This summer/fall, the Crown Point High School Girls Cross Country Team will be conducting a fundraiser to help with program costs.
  • The goal is for each athlete to generate at least $300.00 in sponsorship money.
  • The fundraiser will go from Wed, July 16th through Thursday, July 31st.

In order to raise money for the program, and the individual athlete, we will ask businesses and/or individuals for their financial support.  Sponsors will be recognized in a variety of different ways based on the amount of their donation (Diamond, Platinum, Gold, etc)

Benefits to the Individual Athletes

  • The first $100 that the athlete earns in sponsorship revenue will be credited directly to the athlete’s team fees and gear order
  • Additional sponsorship money that is generated will be split 50-50 between the cross country program and the individual athlete. These funds can be used to offset the team fees and gear order.
    • Any sponsorship money that goes beyond the team fees and gear order will be credited to the athlete in the form of an Extra Mile gift certificate.
    • Any sponsorship money that is received after July 31st will not be credited towards the individual athlete; the entire amount will be put towards the cross country program.
Steps to Follow

1. Give prospective sponsor the Sponsorship Letter. (I would bring 2 copies...one for the business to keep, and one for them to fill out and return to you).
2. Explain how their sponsorship will benefit the CPHS cross country program, and their business.
3. Explain the different sponsorship levels, and ask them if they would be interested in making a donation.
4. You can either collect their donation at that time (recommended), or you can have them mail in the sponsorship letter and check.
