Lanier Volleyball Fundraisers

#1 – Honey Baked Ham – Round 1 – Due 11/14; Round 2 – Due 12/12. 

Sell Honey Baked Ham gift cards!
Players earn 20% of the value of the cards that are sold. Here’s why you should participate in this Fundraiser:

  1. There is no purchase necessary — you sell what you sell.
  2. It is easy to administrate — orders are taken and turned in to Lanier on a specified date; Lanier then will order the gift cards that we need from the store, and return to you to distribute.
  3. Gift cards should be delivered to us within 48 hours so that you can get them to your customers quickly.
  4. There are two “seasons” associated with the Honey Baked Ham product (despite the fact that they sell and cater all year long) — Thanksgiving/Christmas Holidays and Easter. 
  5. Gift Cards available in any denomination.

  3. In addition to the visibility, we will encourage our players and fan base to patronize your business. Your ad purchase goes directly towards covering the fees of the player selling you this service, our financial aid program, and the production of this banner.

GENERAL FUNDRAISING INFORMATION

**Player gets what they put into it – with hard work, you can potentially earn 50-100% of your dues! However, no one is required to participate!

Get Involved!

All Lanier Volleyball fundraisers are completely optional for our members.  If you join a Lanier team, you will not be “asked” to sell candy bars, buy raffle tickets, sell cookie dough, etc. for Lanier.  We provide fundraising opportunities so that athletes can earn individual account credit towards their dues.

We want club volleyball to be affordable to all who wish to participate.  As a non-profit organization, we are able to participate in several great programs to help members earn account credit.  You can choose the program(s) that best fit with what you are willing and able to do.  As with most things in life, the more you put into these fundraisers, the more credit you will earn.

Club volleyball is for everyone.  Lanier VBC provides the best opportunities in the state to earn account credit.  We have several members who fund-raise entire season costs for travel teams.  It takes time, effort, and motivation–but it is possible.  Get involved and start earning credit today!

Earned Credit

Funds raised by a Lanier Volleyball Club participant through individual fundraisers will be credited toward that member’s account.  Because individual fundraisers are provided to help members offset the costs of participating in Lanier, earned credit can only be applied to club fees.  If a member has unused credit on account and elects not to continue membership, the credit will be rolled into the general operating fund.  There will be no cash-outs, reimbursements, or transfers for credit on account earned through fundraisers.   Lanier reserves the right to deduct a portion of any money raised to cover the costs of running the fundraiser.

While any athlete may start fundraising as early as they wish, participating in a fundraiser for Lanier Volleyball Club  and earning credit towards a member account prior to Club Team tryouts does not in any way guarantee a position on a Lanier Volleyball Club team.  Members are placed on a team based on qualifying volleyball skill criteria.  If an athlete so chooses to participate in a fundraiser prior to tryouts so as to begin earning credit early and does not make a Lanier Volleyball Team the credit will be rolled into the general operating fund.

Gift Versus Donation

Because Lanier Volleyball Club is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, donations made to the general operating or scholarship funds can be tax-deductible to the donor.  Many athletes have been very successful in generating funds to help pay for season costs by sending letters to family and friends asking for help.  While this method of fundraising is very effective, the money raised is considered a gift to the athlete and is not tax deductible.  Any time a donor designates money be applied to a specific account, to benefit a specific member, the contribution is considered a gift, and is not tax deductible.

In order for a donation to be tax deductible, it must be un-designated by the donor.

Motivation and Return

We have several very good fundraisers available to our members.  The more motivated an athlete is to earn credit, the better the return will be.  Please read through each fundraiser to get an idea about the time and effort required to participate and the potential earning power of each fundraiser.  Generally, the more effort required, the greater the return.  Get involved and start earning!

Seasonal Fundraisers

Lanier VBC offers various fundraisers throughout the club season that have a definite start and stop time.  Lanier will add to this list as opportunities arise.  If you have a fundraising idea, please contact us.  We want to make club volleyball affordable to anyone who wants to play.  We will do what we can to turn a fundraising idea into reality.
