Our high school likes the Gift-checkbook fundraiser because we feel it provides real value to our supporters who buy a book while enabling us to support local merchants who generously support community schools like ours.

As high school budgets are being cut across the country, athletic and music departments, clubs and other extracurricular programs are taking a big hit. While fundraising has always been a part of participation in these programs, the pressure is on to find ways to raise more funds or risk elimination. The tough economy has led both local merchants and school supporters to think twice about spending money on fundraisers they don’t value, which compounds the problem of keeping extracurricular programs alive. As traditional fundraisers simply don’t seem to work anymore, new fundraising ideas are imperative to success. BoosterShot has developed unique, high-value fundraising programs as a solution.
The BoosterShot Gift-checkbook fundraising program enables high school groups to raise a minimum of $7,500 through sales of a unique, custom to the school checkbook filled with valuable gift-checks from local restaurants and businesses. The Gift-checkbook is comprised of up to 30 same as cash offers (not low value coupons) from local merchants that the school chooses. Merchants like the targeted advertising with no up front cost or risk. And, supporters respond enthusiastically to purchase Gift-checkbooks as they receive a value-laden Gift-checkbook for their money.
For some high school organizations, such as athletic teams and booster clubs, Sports Fantasy Sweepstakes may be the fundraiser of choice. Football, Baseball, Basketball and Hockey Fantasy Sweepstakes combine the best of two worlds: a sweepstakes ticket with cash prizes and a mini-version of the popular Gift-checkbook. School supporters gain value from this fundraiser and have fun with the sweepstakes. Since there are Fantasy Sweepstakes that cover each of the high school sports seasons, sports teams and booster clubs can sell Football Fantasy for fall sports, Basketball or Hockey Fantasy for winter sports and Baseball Fantasy for spring sports.
