Our 2022 online fundraiser is now live!

29 Jul

This week we are excited to be launching our 2022 season West Coast Rangers fundraiser

The formation of West Coast Rangers has been a huge success.  

The positive response right across our community has been beyond our expectations and it is fantastic to see many of our members wearing their Rangers gear and showing their pride at being involved in something new and exciting for Football out West.  

We’ve enjoyed un-precedented growth in each of our first two seasons with membership numbers up 11% each year, despite both being significantly interrupted by Covid-19. We currently have over 1,300 members and have fast become one of the biggest clubs in Auckland!  

However with such rapid growth comes new challenges which, coupled with lost revenue due to Covid-19, means the club needs to explore news ways to raise funds to continue to; 

  • Deliver the quality of coaching, playing surfaces and equipment needed for our football programs   
  • Provide the off-field member and spectator facilities which are fit-for-purpose and meet the changing needs of our community 

As we continue to grow our membership base, we need to grow our resources and improve our facilities to meet that demand. Goals, balls, bibs, cones, nets, uniforms, and coaching costs are the lifeblood of any successful football club. 

Similarly, off the field our facilities require maintenance and investment – so that we have adequate changing facilities for the numbers of games being played and clubrooms you want to visit and which are comfortable, welcoming and fit for purpose.

Rather than asking you all to sell chocolate bars again, we decided to try something new. 

We have partnered with Raise-It, a fundraising platform that can help support the growth and ambition of the club – and we are issuing a challenge to all club members within and to our friends in the wider local community.  

The challenge is to dream big! We’ve shown we can achieve great things over the last 2 years, now lets see if we can raise $50,000!! Sounds a lot, but if each member can raise $50 in donations from friends and family, we really can reach this target.  

How does this work?

First you create your personal (or childs) fundraising profile page by visiting https://westcoastrangersfc.raiseit.nz/hub 

Once you have done that, you can share special fundraising links with your friends and family via email and social media, and the platform tracks how much money is raised by each profile.

So, how much can you raise individually - or as a family or as a team - to support the club so that we can continue to grow and serve you better?

Making it worth your while!

For that little bit of extra motivation, we have worked with a range of our wonderful club sponsors, local businesses and generous individuals to put together an amazing prize package

Every member who raises money during the campaign will go into the draw to win a 50" Panasonic LED flatscreen smart TV.

For the adult team that raises the most we have a special $300 food and bar tab prize at a home game men’s or women’s first team of your choice this season. So you can shout your mates, or your team to a treat on us.

The First Kicks, junior or youth team that raises the most will win their choice of a set of WCR hoodies or WCR wet weather training jackets (for 1 full team, max 16 items), and a special coaching event with the WCR coaching staff and some of our first team players.

Plus we are offering extra special spot prizes EVERY WEEK from the prize pool prizes list for things like;

  • Early achievers doing great in week one of our campaign
  • The family that has raised the most
  • Individual members doing an outstanding job

Prize winners will be announced via the WCR Raise-It website and on facebook, and featured on the facebook page and in the club matchday programme for the next home fixture(s).

So why not get started and set up your fundraising profile page now?
