Keeping a school athletic program running is a constant struggle. There just never seems to be enough money to go around, forcing schools to employ a variety of fundraising tactics to fill the coffers. Between the candy bars, the submarine sandwiches, and the frozen cookie dough, kids – and their parents – can get burned-out on fundraising. It’s time to try something new.
Consider this. Businesses buy advertising in yearbooks, school papers, and coupon books year after year. They do it out of a sense of community and to support the school, but they know exposure on those pages is fleeting. Now picture the scene: It’s Friday night; the stands are filled. All eyes are focused on the inflatable tunnel from which your team will charge the field, just like the pros do. A wisp of fog escapes the tunnel’s entrance, and the anticipation grows. You’ve captured the attention of an eager crowd, and that’s worth big money to local businesses.
Buying advertising space on something that grabs attention like an inflatable tunnel makes good business sense. Many schools even get local businesses to finance part or all of the cost, so there’s no out-of-pocket expense to worry about. Check out some sports tunnel case studies to see how schools use inflatables for fundraising and team spirit. It’s a winning strategy for everyone, and lots more fun than a bake sale!
