Fundraising Options

2016-17 Fee-Raising Options

We know that club volleyball can be a large financial burden for some families. Fundraising can play a huge role in paying for some of the expenses associated with playing club volleyball. For this reason, we offer several opportunities for athletes to raise money to help offset the cost. Below is a summary of each of our programs. We call these "fee-raising" options because the monies raised are related to program fees, and are NOT tax deductible by the donor.

Fundraising is open to all players interested in playing with Carolina One. For fundraisers occurring before tryouts, if the player does not select to play with Carolina One, all monies raised will stay with the club.

For all fee-raising programs, we require that you write one check to Carolina One Volleyball (or turn in cash) for the total amount sold. Please ask purchasers to write checks to you instead of Carolina One.
