Calgary Wildcats Case Study

Calgary Wildcats Football Club

Pride. Courage. Intensity.

This is the motto of the Calgary Wildcats Football Club.

Made up of players from the western edge of Calgary, this group embodies hard work and perseverance. However, times are tough for a lot of people in the city. With a depressed economy, it’s harder than ever for families to pay for youth sports. About 1 out of every 10 Wildcats players required some kind of fee assistance each season. Yet they have never had to turn a player away due to financial hardship.

More Than $35,000 Raised Since 2016

“I sought out TeamFund over 3 years ago looking for an easier way to streamline our fundraising process. In the past we had worked with paper orders, taking cash and cheques from customers always coming up short, making mistakes and lots of times paying more in the end for payments not received.”

Shana Pelzel, Director of Fundraising & Corporate Sponsors

The Wildcats have used TeamFund successfully for numerous fundraisers, and know first-hand how TeamFund makes fundraising easier.

We hear this an awful lot and we have been there as well. Chasing people for weeks or months after a campaign has ended to get money and orders handed in. That’s precisely why we do everything online. No more chasing after people or trying to balance the books.

Like our other groups, Shana says the Wildcats appreciate how easy it is to share a link online. Whether it’s posted on Facebook or sent in an email, it takes the work out of it. Parents are so busy these days. Make fundraising as easy as sharing a link and you’ll have more people participate in the campaigns. This of course means better profits.
