What is TeamFund all about?
TeamFund.ca is a fundraising platform that helps raise funds for minor sports teams, club and organization.
We allow groups to pre-sell consumable products online to supporters and earn a commission from every sale thus raising funds for their cause.
We provide all the sales tools you need like email templates, posters, social media icons, group links and much more.
Can my team or school use TeamFund?
We have helped thousands of groups raise funds! We are divided in four groups:
- Teams: Minor sports teams, larger sports clubs, competitive teams that travel, University level teams. Most teams have between 10-25 participants.
- Schools: including band/music programs, drama class, travel fundraisers like the Quebec trip, Grade 6 or 9 trip and other travel trips including missionary trips and such
- Clubs and Associations: larger sport groups and athletic programs love TeamFund! Most clubs have between 50-300+ participants ranging from different levels, practice days, times and locations, which make them an ideal candidate for TeamFund as they benefit the most!
- Other non-profits: We have helped animal shelters, office groups, Run for the Cure and other similar groups raise funds for their causes.
We keep track of sales for participant and level! No need for hours of spreadsheets

Our group prefers to split profits based on individual sales, is this an issue?
We recognize that not everyone on a team or group wants to or needs to fundraise: and that’s completely fine! You should be seeking a fundraising opportunity that appeals to the masses, but note that not everyone is going to buy in!
We keep tabs on every sellers or participant, so you can confidently know how much each person has earned for their “account”.
How long do Fundraisers go on for?
Fundraisers usually go on for about 3 week and orders are ready about 10 days later.
We provide free tools to help you get started. Create your timeline and plan ahead here.
My group wants to sell from two fundraisers-we like more options.
60% of our groups sell from more than one fundraiser-so you are good to go!
Just ensure you can sell 50 items to make the minimums.
Does it cost anything? Are there any upfront costs or set up costs or fees?
It’s free. There are no upfront cost or inventory to carry. You keep your profits or commissions earned on every sale.
We get paid from our suppliers, so your profits in the end are yours. We do have a $2 flat rate processing fee for each order placed. We do not pass along Paypal fees.
Are there any minimum charges on a fundraiser?
We do not have a minimum charge, but we do enforce a minimum of 50 items sold on a fundraiser. We focus on group fundraising, and 50 items is the a benchmark for you.
If you do not believe that your group can collectively sell 50 items from a fundraiser or vendor, then perhaps this isn’t the right fit for you.
Vendors can’t offer wholesale pricing as it’s based on volume, without the volume it become cost prohibitive for them to enter the fundraising market.
