1. All team fundraising events/sales must FIRST be approved by the Director of Ways and Means.
Contact information for the Ways and Means Director is email@example.com.
An organized schedule of team fundraising efforts will eliminate duplicate events during a specific time period within a defined area. For example, three teams operating a bottle drive in South Glens on a given weekend will not prove profitable for any of the teams involved. With team compliance however, we can suggest another area, weekend, or different fundraising endeavor to increase the effectiveness of your team efforts. Please email your fundraising request to the Ways and Means Director.
Teams should be fundraising to help subsidize hockey expenses only. Funds raised may be used for, but not limited to:
Please refrain from fundraising for a year-end party or non-hockey related events.
3. Upon completion of any fundraiser, please forward the amount raised by your team to the Ways and Means Director. The information regarding the dollar amount raised for any team fundraising will be used by Ways and Means strictly for information purposes. If a team asks for suggestions on how to fundraise, we can then provide them with ideas and an estimate of the amount they could expect to raise based on the information you submit. We want to help our SHC teams be as successful as possible in their fundraising efforts.
Some fundraising ideas: bottle drives, raffles ( oiler tickets, cash, liquor, etc), flipgive app, Wilhauk beef jerky, Little Caesar pizza kits, Calahoo meats, Mundare Sausage, and many more.
To operate 50/50 sales, raffles, etc. your team must obtain an Alberta Gaming License (AGLC).
To do this, your team will need to create an internet account which allows you to create your license, and submit your reporting. This process can take approximately 2 weeks, so please plan accordingly.
The account must be in your team name, for example, SU502 or SHC U7 Green. DO NOT put your account under the generic umbrella of "Sturgeon Hockey Club".
IMPORTANT: Be sure to read what is the proceeds can be used for! Proceeds cannot be used for team apparel! It can be used for tournaments fees, facility rental for dryland practices, extra ice, player development, etc.
