Fundraising with Calendars
How much could you raise?
Each year thousands of Team Calendar customers raise fantastic funds for their causes. Schools and PTAs often feature students' artwork, and self-funded organisations take fun photos of their activities, from football matches to charity challenges.
Here are some typical examples of the profits you could generate by designing your own calendar with us and selling them on to your supporters.

Here are some of the inspired ways our customers have created unique, fun and must-have fundraising calendars:
Schools out for Summer
Give your childrens' artwork pride of place in an annual art competition to be featured in the school calendar. Take a high-res scan of their mini-masterpieces and add the title, child's name and year group as the caption. Select the starting month as September and sell your calendars in the summer term with the added bonus of keeping parents informed of those all-important term dates, inset days, sporting events and parents evenings.
Get your kit off!
The Women's Institute raised a £1million with this simple, saucy idea. Use bats and balls to conceal your bits-and-bobs and sell a bundle!! Warwick University Rowing Club created some of the most successful naked calendars we've ever printed, winning Charity Calendar of the Year 2014.
From Props to Pin-ups
Take your photos in black & white and create a stylish, sexy (and more flattering) calendar. Add some moody looks and it's Andy Murray or Jessica Ennis-Hill, eat-your-heart-out! A winning idea for varsity teams, sports clubs and societies.
Man of the Moment
Comission individual portrait shots of each team player for each month of your calendar. Works well with the 13 page designs, for example our economical A4 7 Leaf Double Sided Wall Calendar.
Smells like team spirit
Get your gang to dress up as rock stars or choose a fun theme such as punk, eighties or heavy metal for each calendar month. Alternatively, re-enact scenes from your favourite films or music videos.
Celebrate your achievements
Pick the best action shots from your team's season and highlight individual and team achievements in the caption areas, for example 'Johnny Barnes: Last season's top point's scorer'.
All club together
Spread the calendar across different age groups or classes and feature a different year group on each month, e.g. Under 9's, Under 10's, Under 11's etc.
Promote your Sponsor
Feature your sponsor's logo on each page with any of our 'Sponsor' calendar styles in exchange for a little help towards your set-up costs. Your sponsor will benefit from year-round brand exposure to your supporters and positive PR.
We'd love to help celebrate and promote your cause or campaign - just follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
