Accessible and high-quality sporting facilities enrich the well-being of students, community areas, and every athlete or fan that visits the field for a game. Unfortunately, many teams and schools do not have access to safe and well-maintained fields. Although this remains a challenge because of hurdles like financing and space considerations, supportive field contractors and creative fundraising campaigns are on a mission to provide outstanding fields to local athletes.
Fund A New Field Through Crowdfunding
Crowdfunding is one of the easiest ways to get a headstart on financing a worthwhile field project. You can advertise your project idea to local youth programs, schools that would benefit, and anyone else that can appreciate a fun place to practice and host games. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how many locals or alumni will proudly stand behind a project that promotes health and community unity!
Partner With Local Teams & Their Fans
If you’re hoping to update an aging facility or develop a new field, consider building symbiotic partnerships with local teams that may benefit from a new field or court. In exchange for unlimited practice time and a place to host local events, each team can take fundraising action through bake sales or car washes to support the field development. The more teams (and fans) you can get on board, the easier it will be to fund the project!
Search For Grants Related To Your Project
Many health-conscious projects like sports fields may qualify for government or private grant programs. Since many grants are specific to local regions, a great place to start is through your local government office. You can also search for private organizations and state or federal grant programs that align with your project goals.
Despite a common misconception that grants are “free money,” to be awarded a grant, you must meet specific application criteria. For example, you may need to apply as an eligible non-profit (like fundraising non-profit through your school’s booster club) and agree to other guidelines if awarded grant money.
Finance The Field With A Low-Interest Option
Like a new home purchase, many field contractors offer competitive financing options to kickstart the project. A well-designed turf field is an attractive space that teams and fans will gladly pay to use, eventually covering the installation and interest costs. You can rent the field, partner with local companies for advertising revenue, and sell more tickets because you now have an amazing venue to promote!
