Cheerleading Fundraisers

Without cheerleading fundraisers, high school football and basketball games would be uneventful. The athletes would have no one cheering them on, no one greeting them at the goal posts after a touchdown or basket. School would be pretty bland and boring without cheerleading.

Cheerleading fundraisers enable these spirit teams to liven up a humdrum school day. When I was in high school, I always looked forward to the spirit rallies on Fridays. Not just because the class periods were shorter, but I liked seeing all of the brightly decorated banners and posters cheering our team on. It was one of the few times I felt connected to the rest of the school.

Cheerleading Fundraisers Make A Difference at School

School budgets are tight enough as it is. Cheerleaders provide a needed break from the monotony that can be found in a typical class schedule. They can make new students feel at home, and give football players the drive they need to win the big game.

Many times, cheerleading fundraisers benefit more than just the cheerleading program at school. Sometimes, as part of their spirit duties, cheerleaders have to sell candy or wash cars to help out a local family or another local organization. Not only is it good for school morale, but it's also a good way for the school to learn about what's going on in the community.
