The winning playbooks of fundraising

Jerseys, equipment and banquets. The list goes on for what teams need funds for. There is no easy way to ask your friends and relatives for money, so many of South’s teams fundraise in clever ways that help both them and the community.

According to Isiah Thomason-Redus ’25, the team hosts a fun run in which community members can pay a fee to participate in. With the money from this event, the cross country team is getting new uniforms for their JV team.“The fundraiser works so well because it is helpful for both the team and the participants,” Thomason-Redus said. “The team gets money and the runners get a good time doing a healthy activity.”

In order to raise enough money to fund the plethora of equipment needed for the football season, every member of the team has to pitch in. Andrew Pazuchowski ’25 said each player is required to sell 24 coupon books worth $25 each.“Selling the coupon books can be extremely difficult at times,” Pazuchowski said. “However, the amount of money that goes back into the program makes it well worth it.”








Boys Soccer-

Fundraising took place online for the soccer team as they raised money in a unique way. According to Raymond Deberry-Jones ’25, every player had to send 20 emails and five text messages to their friends and relatives appealing for a donation to the team. In total, they were able to raise nearly 20 thousand dollars.

“Fundraising online has made raising money much easier than in past years,” Deberry-Jones ’25 said. “It’s so convenient being able to contact so many people so quickly.”
