STC Creates Funding Strategies Toolkit

7/17/2012

Recognizing that raising funds for synthetic turf fields has become more challenging in light of the economic conditions of the past few years, the Synthetic Turf Council has created a new Funding Strategies Toolkit for prospective buyers.  The packet is available as a free download at www.syntheticturfcouncil.org.
"We've spoken to numerous athletic directors, booster clubs, coaches and administrators nationwide who passionately want to bring a synthetic turf field to their school but lack the financial means," explained Rick Doyle, President of the Synthetic Turf Council. "This kit helps individuals learn how to raise funds, build a planning committee and much more."
Whether you're at the early stages of field approval, or ready to hire an experienced design professional or consultant, STC's Funding Strategies Toolkit  features easy-to-follow steps. Content includes educational materials, fundraising ideas, tips on gaining community support and overall recommendations for bringing synthetic turf to one's school and community. The packet also contains a customizable PowerPoint template that users can leverage to gain buy-in from local school boards and other community influencers.
