VERY Easy, Fun, Fundraiser for ALL involved (Sellers & Players alike)! Awesome!
Auxiliary To MFD L215 – Milwaukee, WI
I think this was my 5th year using CharityMania. The reason I choose this fundraiser is because it is easy, and we have made the most money from it. I am always telling people about using you guys! 🙂
Northwest Chargers Hockey SQ1, SQ2, PW1, Bant3 and MM – Palatine, IL
We used another company last year but did not like it as much as we did our first year with your company. we returned this year and are grateful to be back. Thank you again
Hamilton Jr Wildcats Football – Milwaukee, WI
I found your sweepstakes extremely fun to do! Usually, I buy a ticket put it in a drawer and wait to see if anyone calls. With HoopsMania, I was staying up after games, reviewing my teams, doing what ifs, etc. It was by far the most fun, I have had with a raffle-like game.
Nick Waluszko – Chesterton, IN
We are a returning customer to CharityMania because it is well known, our parishioners have become accustomed to it. It is simple to play and also to keep track of it. The cost is reasonable and the fact that it extends the entire football season is just long enough. Your reporting system is also very good. Thank you for starting and managing a great tool to not only have fun as a community but also to make some needed funds.
Saint John Bosco Church – Hatboro, PA
Our high school football team started using Football Mania as an additional fundraiser last year. I had been originally exposed to it when my son played football in college. I introduced the fundraiser to our local youth sports league and now to the high school football team. This year, we are doing it again and have actually expanded the fundraiser to include our marching band. We are hoping to significantly increase the funds we raise as we have stopped one of the fundraisers we have done for years and replaced it with an expanded Football Mania. Our parents like the fundraiser because the tickets are easy to sell. Mark Peischl, Coordinator, Wayne Hills Football Mania
Wayne Hills Football – Wayne, NJ
Our Lions Club has been using this easy to do and administer fundraiser for seven years to raise money for our Community Projects Fund.
North Aurora Lions Club – North Aurora, IL
It was an easy & successful fundraiser. Can’t wait to do again!
Egg Harbor Twp Ice Hockey – Mays Landing, NJ
Weekly winners for 16 weeks!!! It truly is one of the best fundraisers we ever have done!!!!
Denville PAL Blue Knights Hockey – Denville, NJ
We had the kids sell the tickets at our practice facility and it was a great experience for them. Also it was so great that once they were sold there was nothing left to do but watch the games. Nothing to pick up and deliver!
St Louis Gamers 12u Blue – Ballwin, MO
Hello! This was the first time our organization has ever used CharityMania and it has by far been the best fundraiser I have been involved in. While the fundraiser was not as successful as we had hoped it would be we do look forward to using it again in the future. Educating ourselves and our students was probably our biggest disadvantage but we were in a time constraint as well. Being the Co-President of our organization I found many advantages to CharityMania. I found it very easy to inventory and distribute to the students. I found it easy to activate and log when tickets/ticket stubs were returned. The customer service was incredible (loved Dr. Neil Quinn Jr.), any question I had was answered right away so I was not left guessing or providing incorrect information to our students and their parents. The organization of the fundraiser on line was very simple and I especially liked that when it was time for the winners of the tickets that were sold/activated and un-activated came to me via email that I could display and was EASY on the EYES. It was great to see so many winners out of our group (sold/unsold). While explaining to our group we were able to show them that not just one person is a winner, many are winners so you should try to sell as many as you can. It was an eye opener to our group that we had a $1000 winning ticket that was NOT sold which got everyone excited to do it again in hopes we have another high winner. The payout was fantastic, we did not have to wait or worry when the money would be available to provide to our winners. The best part for our group is the 70% that we were able to keep in our organization since we are very small. This was new to our community so everyone was interested to see what it had to offer. I found that people were relieved that they did not have to choose teams or pick winners, it was random. They liked the idea of tracking their progress on line as well. Thank you again for this opportunity and I look forward to using CharityMania again in the near future. Have a great day!!!
Dwight Music Boosters – Dwight, IL
It’s the biggest fundraiser bringing in the highest profit for us 🙂
Knights of Columbus Council #14578 – Bronx, NY
This ran smooth and there were no issue working with your organization. This is why we are staying with you, keep up the good work!
LOFS Men’s Golf Association Lake of the Four Seasons – Crown Point, IN
At VFW Post 5151 we have used CharityMania twice in the past and will use you again this year. In my option it’s a no brainer to use CharityMania as a fundraiser. We trust CharityMania and it’s a simple formula to use to raise funds.
Arnold-Heath Memorial VFW Post 5151 – Hoffman Estates, IL
We are returning to Charitymania fundraiser because it has been the most efficient and most successful fundraiser for our club.
TC2K1AAA – Atco, NJ
CharityMania SuperMatch = Super Fundraiser!
Fort Her-ricanes Softball – Weyers Cave, VA
Easy and Fun fundraiser. We quickly generated $1,800 profit in 2 weeks which was donate to Special Olympics Illinois.
PB & PA Unit 21 – Bloomington, IL
We were running behind in our fundraising efforts and needed to find another. I stumbled across CharityMania while trying to learn about March Madness brackets. I had questions, sent an email, and was called the next business day. This fundraiser is so easy and CharityMania does most of the work. We are passing this company on to the 2017 parents organization.
Comstock Park Senior Parents – Comstock Park, MI
Easy to work with, no issues, great fundraiser!
Wakefield-Marenisco Athletics – Wakefield, MI
BaseballMania was an easy and profitable fundraiser for our organization. We exceeded our goal by selling both paper and electronic tickets.
Marlton Cooperstown Teams – Marlton, NJ
Great fundraiser! Very marketable with amazing returns! Takes a little work, but it is totally worth it!
Gems Cheer Stars – Randolph, NJ
We made our parents sell just 5 tickets each and we made over $6300 profit for our Hockey Club!”
Cherokee Ice Hockey Club – Marlton, NJ
CharityMania’s FootballMania is a favorite fundraiser for our school and parish. People ask about it for months ahead of time! The guaranteed winner program is the best!
St. William School – Chicago, IL
Our Milwaukee Women’s Bowling Association is always looking for ways to increase our funding. This was easy AND safe. And coming from a “football enthusiastic area” made our sales much easier. We look forward to the next football season and will start selling much earlier, Our Milwaukee men’s bowling association is also jumping on board with us. We expect our sales to – at the very least – TRIPLE!
Milwaukee Women’s Bowling Association – Green Bay, WI
The fundraiser allows those that may not have thought they could afford travel sports a platform to help them curb that expense. Hoffman United Thunder and Lighting soccer has used this to bridge the gap. There have been several people who have paid nothing for their daughter to play year in and year out. Great way to level the playing field for all that take advantage of it.
Hoffman United Thunder and Lighting Soccer – Roselle, IL
We have done this for five years now and it’s been very successful. Thank you Chris Martens. This will be our sixth. C.M.
Assumption Booster Club Knight`s Booster Mania – Davenport, IA
Advantages of using a CharityMania fundraiser… 1. Online Sales!, 2. Easy interactions with CharityMania Support People, 3. All the information is stored in one place, 4. Great overall fundraiser and hope to use it again in the future!
HCYHC/Howard Huskies Hockey PeeWee Black – Frederick, MD
It’s interesting you sent this now. We just had a board meeting this week and discussed doing a different fundraiser in the fall. We have done CharityMania for the NFL for several years now. We just started getting pushback from some of our families regarding selling the tickets. But in the end we realized we could never get the kind of profit that we achieve from another fundraiser. So long story short – you can’t make the kind of profit with any other fundraiser that we’ve found.
Rampage Softball Rage Baseball – Roselle, IL
We choose CharityMania as our fundraiser because the tickets are easy to sell, there’s cross gender interest and the return to our company is 70%. Plus, it’s exciting to have a winner each week and last year we had nearly $3,000 in prize money won for our sellers. Overall we have been very successful using this fundraiser for our school! Sincerely, Jennifer Sklarek
Lollipop Cooperative Preschool – Macedonia, OH
First time …..switched because it gives people an opportunity to win cash prizes rather than buy another candle they don’t need.
Thunder Baseball of Hyde Park Hyde Park Thunder 14U – Staatsburg, NY
This was the first time we have tried it and it seems much easier than the cookie dough/pizza we have done in the past.
Ocean Renegades Basketball – Manahawkin, NJ
We are a returning Organization that has works with CharityMania on a few of their fundraiser’s. As a fundraising coordinator, CharityMania fundraisers are easy to run and the profit margin is high. The people behind the scenes are friendly and easy to work with.
St. Mary’s Institute – Amsterdam, NY
The primary reason we have used this fundraiser for multiple years is the high percentage of the proceeds that remain with our organization. It is also a fun and easy fundraiser to sell.
TRFC-Red Stars Girls U11 Travel Soccer Team – Toms River, NJ
We like the fact that the 70% return is one of the best in the fundraising industry. Means less fundraising. Keep it that way and we keep coming back year after year…..
LITH Travel Baseball 15U Thunder – Lake in the Hills, IL
This was NOT our first time using CharityMania and it will not be the last. The cards (football) are very easy to sell. We will be placing an order very soon for Football again. We chose your fundraiser company because the cards are easy to sell and the profit is very good. Thanks Norm Jones Captain of Team Cure Chasers
Team Cure Chasers City to Shore – Westampton, NJ
You guys are the best at what you do. Also you make things so easy.
Friends of Father Murphy Inc – La Verne, CA
The people like it and the profit is great!
St. Agnes School – West Mifflin, PA
We have used CharityMania for three fundraisers. Your initial cost is very low and a profit of 70% per ticket is very good. You are also very easy to work with.
Middlesex Youth Soccer Association – Middlesex, NJ
We signed up for Football Mania last summer for the first time due to the high % profit margin and popularity /ease of ticket sales (NFL Football) We’ll be doing it again !!
Hibernian Shock Girls Soccer – Hamilton, NJ
This was an efficient and easy fundraising solution that was enjoyed by all participants. I will be taking over this fundraiser this year and anticipate a great experience.
Father Boecker Council #6090 Knights of Columbus – Lombard, IL
Returning customer. Reason we use you is: easy system, simple game cards, nice people to work with.
Holy Rosary School Booster Club – Newburgh, IN
We continue to use CharityMania, along with our other events, to help fundraise over $100,000 for ice cost for South Wood County Youth Hockey. This huge effort by our non-profit organization helps keep hockey affordable for all youth in our area. CharityMania at this point remains SWCYHA Board Challenge to help cover the costs of running our other big events. We would like to see it be a bigger part of what we do and we currently are looking more closely at the on-line option to sell tickets which we have not had the best of luck. While paper tickets sell well, gathering the sold tickets and activating them is a huge task if you have 100 people selling which is why we limit it to the Board at this time. We like it. We know the purpose of it: Sell the music but emphasize the sweepstakes! I think the buyers are looking for more music choice because of their options with I-Tunes which has changed the way our society purchases music these days. Thank you for helping us over the years! You will be hearing from us soon!
Support Youth Hockey SWCYHA – Rapids Area Hockey – Wisconsin Rapids, WI
I’ve sold CharityMania tickets for our football team and it went over amazingly. We were allotted (6) tickets per player, I ended up selling (30). I thought why not try to let our baseball team benefit from the same success. It is still to be seen how many tickets the parents of our players sell, I have sold about (20-24) so far and am hoping to eclipse (40) myself.
Morris PTT Youth Baseball – Morris, IL
We are a returning organization. We use to do the HoopsMania but switched to the FootballMania. The reason for our switch was because we have many different things going on when HoopsMania is in session. We will continue to use CharityMania because it is easy for our members to use and there are so many ways to win. Plus the staff and support system with CharityMania makes my job as fundraising monitor very easy.
Oak Lawn Raiders SAC – Oak Lawn, IL
CharityMania is easy to organize, well-run and people get more “bang for their buck” …
Carol Stream Youth Football Association – Carol Stream, IL
Returning Customer: Our Parish School does use other fundraisers for Parent’s Club Money as well as field trips etc… The largest expenditures are incurred with our Athletics program and CM being sports related also offers the biggest opportunity to raise money. A portion of our athletic association proceeds are shared among the other school organizations to supplement their fundraising efforts. I would certainly recommend CM to any fundraiser (just not near us) 🙂
St. Joseph Athletic Association – Lockport, IL
I have used CharityMania in the past and I think it’s a great fundraiser. It is very easy to sell and we get a great profit in return!

FootballMania is a GREAT way to make extra funds; it is easy, it keeps people interested in the program, and it gives a number of people a chance to win!
Knights of Columbus Council #6090 – Lombard, IL
CharityMania was quick and easy. Not much paperwork to keep track of and fun for our families.
St. William School – Chicago, IL
Because it’s easy and it works.
Western New England Football 5th Quarter Club – Springfield, MA
We have been doing the Charitymania Football fundraiser for a few years now and are very pleased with our success. We did not change from any other fundraiser. We selected Charitymania because it is pretty self explanatory and our group does not have any issues working with it.
McGuane Park Special Recreation – Chicago, IL
We returned to charity mania because of the amount of profit for our organization and the ease of working with CharityMania.
Evening Star Chapter #20 OES PHA – Hanover, MD
we have done it a couple of years now, because it’s easy to work on, and an easy way to make good money, which we use toward the projects we do for Kiwanis. and the members enjoy selling the tickets, occasionally we bring in new members because of this fund raiser. We haven’t switched to it in place of others, as we’re always looking for new fund raisers so we can let Kiwanis become familiar to people.
West Branch Kiwanis – West Branch, MI
We stayed with your organization because it is very well run. You make it very easy
THE PAP CORP WYCLIFFE CHAPTER – Wellington, FL
We have used CharityMania in the past. Easy way to make money for our youth hockey club.
Ice Dogs Bantam AA Hockey Team – Chalfont, PA
I am a returning customer, because the opportunity is there to make a considerable amount of money over other fundraisers. Also, it’s pretty easy for parents, sell and forget about it… I have a question – Are you working on an APP for Android?
St. Jerome Catholic School – Chicago, IL
Our members are comfortable with the 17 week program, they have built up return customers that like the program. We also have businesses selling for us and they don’t want to change and explain another program. Lion Carl
Aquia Harbour Host Lions Club – Stafford, VA
This fundraiser works for us and is relatively easier than most others that we have investigated.
LAOH CAPE MAY COUNTY – North Wildwood, NJ
CharityMania has been a very good fundraiser for our Lions Club. Each year we count on the income from it to help meet our budget. This year we have more than doubled the number of tickets we hope to sell. We’re very familiar w/CharityMania which made it easy to select this venue one more time.
Lake Ridge Lions Charities – Centreville, VA
We’ve been using CharityMania football for the last several years because our residents seem to like football the best, and they get excited by the chance of winning even the $25 guaranteed.
Huntington Pointe Chapter PAP Corps Cancer Research – Delray Beach, FL
We wanted a fundraiser that was not using the church’s facility and did not require a lot of volunteers. Your 70/30 % pay off also was another reason we picked football mania.
Knights of Columbus Saint Jude Council 6551 – Voorhees, NJ
I had used CharityMania when I was on the Board of Directors for my community basketball program and we really enjoyed the ease of this particular fundraiser, and how much money we were able to make. I am now on the Board for Project Graduation which needs fund to send our seniors out after graduation safely. They needed to make money and I brought the CharityMania fundraiser idea to them knowing I could work this fundraiser with ease. We did not sell as many tickets as I would have liked but I still believe it is an excellent way to fundraise.
Washington Township HS PROJECT GRADUATION – Sewell, NJ
This was a fundraiser we had never heard of until we were approached to purchase a ticket. We like football and were interested to this for my daughter’s organization. I talked to the organizer of the ticket we purchased and she was very positive. I loved the website. You can also add that your website was very user-friendly. Data and information was easily found and could be used for tracking purposes.
ATB Powerhouse Dance Competition Team – Davenport, IA
Hello CharityMania Support, Yes we are returning, I believe this will be our 10th year. Yours is a simple fundraiser to run. Our participants do not need to know anything about football. I think it is fun to see how I do personally. I have yet to win, lol. Until we reach a point where no one wants to buy a ticket and you still have the program we will continue. Hope you have continued success.
Santa Maria del Popolo – Mundelein, IL
CharityMania is an easy way to raise money for our parish church and by using the guarantee winner vehicle we had a winner every week.
St. John Fisher church – Boothwyn, PA
There is no other fundraiser I know of where you get back 70% of the proceeds…we sold $900 of Joe Corbi’s pizza and made $75 bucks…then had to deliver it all. What a worthless fundraiser.
Mason Dixon Ruffnecks Baseball – Whiteford, MD
The fundraiser was very helpful in paying our land taxes the past several years. Taxes keep going up so we will have to stay involved with CharityMania.
D&D Sportsman Club – Endicott, NY
Everyone likes football and likes games of chance, so the tickets are easy to sell.
Our Lady of Hope Parish & Knights of Columbus 9193 – Sicklerville, NJ

You process is very efficient, accurate, and easy. Has a professional presence.
St. Stevens Lodge #156 – Clinton Township, MI
CharityMania worked well for us last year. We were happy with the results and it is a very low cost fundraiser.
Chicago Metro Chapter of Credit Unions – Burnham, IL
We experienced what it did for other organizations financially and therefore believed it could do the same for us, since kids/parents do not appreciate a lot of fundraising. I figured that since we are a Football Organization Football-Mania would’ve been a hit. It did OK. The concept is great and the winnings but it’s still hard for parents/players to sell it to others. I think maybe someone from the organization should come and speak to the parents and players about the fundraiser and hype them up for a big sale. I still prefer it over selling cookie dough, cheesecakes and other stuff.
Western Wildcats Football Booster Club – Sunrise, FL
We were very happy with everything about the fundraiser. It is so nice having the money that is won in the bank so fast and not having to worry about sending checks out to the winners. Everything just runs smoothly!
Oppo Boat and Ski Club – Naperville, IL
Returning customer because of the ease and convenience of CharityMania’s digital support and distribution of winnings.
U-13 Boys PSC Fury Soccer Team – Philadelphia, PA
We feel the tickets are easy to sell and we make a good profit from this fundraiser.
PARENTS FOR ATHLETES – Eagle River, WI
We are returning users and have found it to be profitable for our group. Wasn’t aware of any other similar program, so we stay with CM.
Nutley High School Football Booster Club – Nutley, NJ
The online option with hands off electronic ticket distribution is a model that helps us decrease administrative overhead. We hope to better develop and market this fundraising option. With sooner implementation and communication for the upcoming year! Although, we would like the option to “decrease” the number of “required” paper tickets to get into events. Thank you CharityMania!-)
St. Mary’s Catholic School – Taylor, TX
Because it is easy fundraiser.
Knights of Columbus Council #1369 – Naperville, IL
First time user. Don’t usually do fundraisers thought we would give it a try. Seemed like a good profit ratio too.
Neshaminy HS Tennis – Feasterville, PA
This is the first time we used CharityMania we chose this because of the return. Thanks
South Jersey Baseball Bandits – Elmer, NJ
The Football Mania has been a good fundraiser for our parish and school. Wish we could get more families to purchase the tickets that are distributed to them.
Holy Cross Parish Family – Green Bay, WI
This is our second time using Charitymania. First time we did the Super Bowl one and then the 10 week NFL fundraiser. Charitymania works great because with the rush of fantasy sports, and type of “gambling” that’s actually a fundraiser just works great. I think the excel spreadsheet you added to input the names of who donated was a good idea, but I don’t think it was set 100% to work in the ways that the organizations needed. I still had to create my own spreadsheet to keep track of everything.
E-160 Centennial Fundraiser FDNY – Staten Island, NY
Happy to reply to your questions regarding our FootballMania fund raising. When we first heard about CharityMania we were looking for a fundraiser that would give us a good return for our efforts and FootballMania has done that. We have another fundraiser that we run during our bowling season and between the two fundraisers we are please with the results. As you know there is stiff competition for people’s discretionary dollars and as an organization we are always looking for a fundraiser that is a good investment for both us and our buyers. We have ten board members who are the primary sellers of the 10 week $20.00 FootballMania tickets and the most frequent complaint is that the tickets are $20.00 and the majority of our winners are only $25.00. So some of our members feel that the dollar amount is not a very good return for the investment. Twenty dollars to win twenty-five dollars. And of course there are weeks we only have one winner at that amount. We sell 200 tickets so we are in the guaranteed winner class but again that is usually a $25.00 winner. We are going to continue selling the tickets for this upcoming football season but are really hoping to see a better return for our buyers. I would like to add that your customer service is very good. From the first tickets we decided to sell until recently I have been very pleased with the help I receive when I call your 1-800 number. The people are very nice and answer all my questions to my satisfaction. Thank you for asking for our feedback. -Sandy Klimek,Green Bay Women’s Bowling Association Director
