crowdfunding Rewards

Gear, swag, rewards...whatever you call it, it's a big part of successful fundraising. The proper incentive can make all the difference. 

Professional teams definitely have the advantage here.  Tens of thousands of dollars have been raised on FanAngel with sign memorabilia (e.g. Washington Capitals, New York Red Bulls).

For High Schools and Youth Teams, you need to get creative. Consider selling premier seating at games, valet parking, or locker room access. Or sell special, exclusive team swag that is AMAZING. The more exclusive the reward/experience, the more likely it will sell.
