Attention: Coaches, Athletic Directors, Booster Club Members and Parents

Is Your Athletic Program’s Budget Much LessThan You Need To Run A Quality Program?

“Where Amazing Happens”…

Make It Happen For Your Team


Our school’s athletic budget gets cut year after year. The only way we could provide a high quality program is by raising the money on our own…through fundraising. We raised $61,000 last year in a tough economy!

Coaches, Athletic Directors, and Boosters:

Every year, the budget for high school sports sadly gets slashed more and more. As a result, it’s become impossible to run a quality high school athletic program without extensive fundraising efforts.

My name is Christian Aurand, and I’m Head Basketball Coach at Simi Valley High School in California. At our school, the typical budget provided by the district ranges from $1,700 to $1,900 each year. Our uniform allowance is every 4 years….Not EVERY YEAR, but EVERY 4 YEARS.

Needless to say, we can’t run a program on that budget and had to find creative ways to provide a quality high school experience without finances being an obstacle. Upon becoming Head Coach of an already successful high school basketball program 12 years ago, we increased our fundraising efforts from a first year mediocre total of $19,000 to over $61,000 last year. All revenue raised is put back into the program!!

We hold between 7-10 different fundraising activities each year. These fundraisers not only generate much needed revenue, but enhances our program’s pride and performance. Here’s how much we’ve made the last seven years through our fundraising efforts. You can see we’ve improved each year!

Fundraising History

2002: $36,231

2003: $48,570

2004: $50,671

2005: $55,200

2007: $67,250

2008: $71,000+

2009: $61,000

2010: $57,000

The money our teams raise goes towards:

  • Coach stipends as the District made sweeping budgetary cuts
  • Uniforms, Practice Gear, and Travel Gear
  • Transportation Costs which have risen annually
  • Tournament fees for the season and summer
  • Balls, Ball Racks, Plyometric Equipment, Scorebooks, Whistles, Coaching Gear
  • Shooting Guns (we have two) that cost $5000
  • Sports Performance Training Opportunities
  • Scouting Equipment and Software
  • HD DVD Cameras and Supplies
  • Copy Machine and Maintenance Contracts
  • Season Summary Booklets, Tournament Awards, Banquet
  • School Pride T-Shirts, Polos, and Gear for Staff and Boosters

Here are our fundraising activities and how much each activity has generated AFTER FIXED COSTS have been subtracted.

  1. Program Press/Media Guide Publication Ads- $10,000 – $ 15,000 (big money!)
  2. Golf tournament- $12,000 -$15,000

Grand Total...

WE RAISE BETWEEN $60,000-$75,000 each year!

In the past 30 years, the two head coaches prior to me (whom I played for) as well as myself, have tried them all. We’ve learned what’s the most profitable and what’s a waste of time. We’ve learned through experience how to coordinate these efforts to get results. We don’t want to spend all our time organizing fundraisers so we’ve learned the big money-makers and just focus on those.

Coaches have asked me to share this information, but I just have not had the time to put it together for other people’s use. But now, with the sorry state of the education budget, I know how needed it is.

Now, I’m ready to share the exact Blueprint of how we execute each fundraiser and just how to plan the following:

  • The best time of year for each fundraiser
  • Planning time involved
  • What to do and when to do it
  • Who to enlist for help
  • How to promote each activity
  • Forms, documents, checklists
  • Most important-Templates! Just insert your team or program name!!!!

You’ll also learn some insider tips for certain activities, such as:

  • How to get free items to auction off or use as a prize
  • Legal issues
  • Tax donation forms, letters
  • Community partner letters
  • Free advertising for your event
  • Included incentive programs for each player/family

You’ll have all the tools you need, a complete blueprint, for a successful, highly profitable fundraising program for your team.

If your program’s budget has been cut like mine has, you need to make up the difference somehow. Through the exact activities below, we consistently raise between $65,000 and $75,000, and SO CAN YOU!!!!!

When it comes to fundraising, you needed to get started yesterday! All you need to do  to get started right now is choose any of the following successful fundraisers and you’ll be able to download them immediately. It’s all laid out for you. Just follow the directions, use the templates and you’ll raise the money you need.

These activities are PUSH BUTTON EASY and are PROVEN MONEY-MAKERS! Every aspect is covered, already set up for you, and all you need to do is print them out and implement them!

The philosophy is not to do a million fundraisers

but, to do a few done right!

In other words “Do it right do it light, Do it wrong do it long.”

It’s literally taken me 17 years to fine tune these, and organize them. Why re-invent the wheel when it’s all here for you, ready for you to download now?

First, here’s what others have said about the quality of our program:

I have always been proud to say that I played at Simi Valley High School and watching the program 20 years later I am still proud to be associated with the program. The bar was set high early by Coach Hawking and through the years and ending with Coach Aurand it has stayed there.

Don MacLean

C.I.F Champions 1988

The Simi Valley High School Basketball Program changed my life and taught me that there’s more to basketball then just basketball. The skill/ life development, confidence, work ethic, teamwork, and heart that Coach Aurand puts into the program becomes part of every player that walks into the Pioneer Gym! Coach Aurand developed me into a Top 100 player in the nation and allowed me to be recruited by many Division I schools.

Dustin Villepigue #30
SVHS Class of 2001

You should be so lucky if your son gets the chance to play hoops for Coach Aurand. I don’t care if you’re the best player on the court or the last one off the bench. The three hours a day practicing and learning from Coach Aurand are PRICELESS. I live in Utah now and would give anything to have my two young boys get taught by the best. I know under Coach Aurand you’re being tutored in the game of life and basketball by a man and coach who really cares how you are progressing.
