With a Pear sponsorship, groups have the opportunity to start fundraising towards custom apparel (open to all groups), or a direct cash donation (open to 501c3 non-profit organizations). You might be curious what you can do with these awards, as there are many options to chose from!
When people hear the word ‘apparel’, they typically only think about clothing items. While custom jerseys and t-shirts are often what a Pear sponsorship is used towards, you can also take advantage of other items that our network of printers offer. Water bottles, shorts, bags, hats, and umbrellas are just a few of the many options you can chose from. Get creative with your next custom apparel sponsorship, and think outside the box for what your group would like! Looking for some inspiration? Check out these design ideas.
If your group is a registered 501c3 organization (see our previous post on how to become a registered non-profit), and are interested in one of our direct cash donation sponsorships, you can use your sponsorship in whatever way you would like to help your group. Common ways groups and teams use their fundraising dollars include: league fees, new equipment, travel expenses, tournament fees, etc. The team at Pear wants you to be able to take advantage of opportunities offered to your group!
With these new ideas, get sponsored and start fundraising today. Remember, if your team or group is part of a larger organization, like a school or sports league, learn more about how to become part of our partner network, and earn extra money on top of your sponsorships on Pear.
