Columbia Southern University Sport Fundraising Plan Section 9 Paper


Question Description

Alvin - some of your paragraphs in section 1 still need more thought development and detail (proceeds, venue) and in your volunteer section. Be specific regarding roles and duties and responsibilities.

For sections 7 and 8: What is the dream, you mention? What was that event. Vague writing. What about the status of the organization? Where is it going? How much did those other events (still lack details) raise? Was it an auction? Is this is a dinner or car wash? Be more direct.

The objective of this assignment is to submit your updated fundraising plan with revisions to sections 1 - 6 and your first submission of section 7 (history of the organization and its fundraising programs; internal and external stakeholders; and reflection of the program, where it is, and where it should go) and Section 8 ( specific and realistic start of fundraising process, when will the event take place, when will it finish, and post-event evaluations).

Based on your professor’s feedback, make updates to Sections 1–8 of your sport fundraising plan. Then, complete Section 9, and submit your updated fundraising plan for grading (Sections 1–9 should be included).

Section 9: This section should be a synopsis of the entire fundraising plan. It is completed after all other components of the plan are finalized. The summary is typically the first component looked at by stakeholders; therefore, this is the section where you need to grab the stakeholders’ interest and tell the program’s story. Your summary should be a minimum of one page in length.

Sports Fundraising Plan: The Together Project

Columbia Southern University




Section One
The Together Project is an initiative being organized by Brewton Baseball Team. The
initiative involves a fundraiser that will target to raise money which will help the baseball team
bring in more young people as a way of nurturing talent and reducing crime within the
community (Cameron & MacDougall, 2000). These funds will be primarily used to purchase
equipment, hire a coach, purchase the team’s uniforms, and meet other needs of the team.
Brewton Baseball began as a youth engagement scheme whose main aim was to target at
risk youth through baseball as a sport. The baseball team now boasts a membership of 89 active
boys and girls. Even though there are numerous baseball teams in and around the locality,
Brewton Baseball takes pride in being the only club that has an active membership program for
both teenage girls and boys (Cameron & MacDougall, 2000).
Beneficiaries of the Campaign
The Together Project campaign will not only benefit the baseball team but also the
Brewton Baseball organization, the sponsoring organization, and the society at large. The
baseball team will benefit in the fact that the campaign will promote their individuals' sports
talents and skills upon the implementation of the project's objectives. Additionally, Brewton
Baseball organization will benefit from the campaign by promoting its brand. The Brewton
Baseball organization will increase its popularity due to the level at which the baseball team will
attain. The reputation of the organization will enable it to win more rewards that will assist the
organization to accommodate more players, hence promoting the talents of young people
(Blayney, 2008). Moreover, the sponsoring organization will benefit by increasing the popularity
of its brand. The logo that will be put on the players' jerseys, jackets, team apparel, and bags will
be advertising the brand of the company. As the baseball team plays in different regions and
countries, the name of the sponsoring organization will be spread all over.



The Proceeds
Since the Together Project campaign is aiming at raising funds for promoting the baseball
team, the proceeds will only be used in the Brewton Baseball program. The primary purpose of
the project is to raise the money to purchase the baseball team equipment, uniforms, and a
clubhouse. All the funds collected through the fundraiser will be well-budgeted and distributed
appropriately to causes listed above with the help of the club’s financial manager. Priority of the
allocation process will be on purchasing of the existing team’s equipment and playing kits,
which will then be followed by the signing of more players and hiring of an additional coach. If
the funds are sufficient, they will then be utilized for constructing a clubhouse. The financial
manager will be answerable to the board of directors that has been tasked with the oversight of
the club’s activities, collection of funds, and monitoring the usage of these funds. The funds will
be collected from well-wishers as well as corporates who wish to market themselves with the
club by having their logos and marketing ads printed on the team’s jersey and other merchandise.
The sports fundraising event will be held at Brewton Country Club on 19th and 20th July
2019. Brewton Country Club is located in the city of Brewton in Escambia County, Alabama.
This facility has in the past successfully held similar events for other clubs. The Brewton
Country Club is large enough to accommodate many participants since it is more spacious. We
are expecting about 500 people at this event. The Country Club has space to host more than 1000
people including outdoor and indoor space. In addition, several sports events take place in this
club, and therefore people are aware of its location. The popularity of the facility should help in
making it easier for attendants to understand its location while at the same time providing
sufficient space in case more than the anticipated number of guests turns up for the event. Other
than providing the facility, Brewton County Club is also expected to provide security during the



event and a number of other professionals such as the club’s manager and a supportive team in
order to guide the event organizers.

Section Two: Importance of the Fundraising Campaign
The Brewton Baseball organization decided to develop the Brewton Baseball Program
after realizing that several young people are wasting their talents and skills. Several boys
between the age of 14 years and 18 years have been charged in criminal activity due to the
robbery in different communities (Leonard, 2012). The Brewton Baseball organization has
considered those challenges to gather boys between the age of 14 and 18 years to eliminate their
idleness as well as promote their talents through baseball sports. However, the organization is not
capable of supporting the players on its own and therefore has decided to conduct a fundraising
campaign to promote talents within and eliminate idleness from the community.
Promote Talents
Through the fundraising campaign, the talents of young boys and girls will be promoted.
Based on the study that the Brewton Baseball organization conducted, it has realized that the
campaign will produce at least three international players from the baseball team. According to
the information obtained from previously devel...
