Running a fantasy football league is a fun way to raise money, but you should only be running this kind of fundraiser if you understand fantasy football, and are willing to run the league as the commissioner. This kind of fundraiser also only raises money with the entry fee, so keep in mind you’re going to have to run the league the entire season. Here’s how to do it:


Recruit participants for your fantasy football league:

The bigger your team, the more money you raise for your cause, and the more work you do. Make sure that you only let in the number of team members you can handle for the duration of your season. 


Figure out your entry fee:

If you’re going to have a prize at the end of the season, the entry fee for your fantasy football league should reflect that. Your participants can opt to donate their winnings to your cause as well!


Use a football fantasy hosting site to help run your fundraiser:

Sites like ESPN, Yahoo!, NFL, and  offer fantasy football platforms that will automatically track player and team stats for you! This takes a lot of the legwork out of your fundraiser, especially when it comes to figuring out scores for each player and each team every week. These platforms also track performance in real-time, so your participants can stay updated on their scores.
