 What people are saying about Up Tempo


5 Star Fundraiser

Best fundraiser I have been a part of in 21 years of coaching.  Teena is great to work with.  The kickoff was fun, and I am so surprised of the amount was raised.  Will definitely reach back out again to run this one back!!  No brainer."

-Douglas Fair, Head Tennis Coach Frisco Centennial Coach

"We are incredibly pleased with our results using Up Tempo Fundraising.  Mindy and Shawn have the utmost integrity and when dealing with fundraising, that really put my mind at ease.  Also, with the demands of coaching these days, it is hard to add one more thing to your plate but with Up Tempo I really had to do very little other than see the donations roll in over the internet.  I can't recommend Up Tempo enough."

-Coach Herrema, Athletic Coordinator, Head Boys Basketball Coach Lovejoy High School

“Up Tempo fundraising is the best fundraiser I have used. It required very little work on our part and we raised the most money we have ever raised. Mindy is organized and brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm, which gets the entire team involved!” 

-Coach Fieszel, Head Football Coach Gunter High School 

“I am extremely happy we were able to do a fundraiser with Up Tempo Fundraising.  The company was professional and communicated extremely well from the beginning to the final day of the fundraiser.  They are organized and have a blueprint for you to follow that is user friendly and will allow you to achieve your fundraising goals.”

-Matt Webb, Head Football Coach/Athletic Coordinator, Frisco Centennial High School  


"Working with Teena and Kyle Story for our basketball fundraiser has been streamlined and easy.  This is the first fundraiser that I have done where the majority of the front end work was handled by UpTempo and didn't require me to do a ton of work.  This helped take one thing off my plate and free me up to focus on basketball!  UpTempo created a competitive environment where our kids were working to see who could raise the most money, and we raised over 34k!  The platform is simple to understand and operate, we never experienced a single issue throughout the entire process.  I can't recommend Teena and UpTempo enough!!!  They were an absolute pleasure to work with."

-Scott Imes, Head Boys Basketball Coach, Prosper High School


"UpTempo Fundraising is a fantastic platform and program for raising funds.  From the excitement of the kick-off event, the competitive team-building atmosphere, and the ease of execution, it was perfect.  It truly exceeded our expectations."

-Matt Swinnea, Head Football Coach/Athletic Coordinator, Frisco Liberty High School

“Been doing fundraisers for over 20 years, all have been ok but decided to use Mindy Purcell’s company based on a buddy. After using her and experiencing her process I was blown away. She was very organized and great with the kids and staff. Ultimately I was hoping to just beat my former best fundraising total, to my surprise we out did my previous best total by 30 thousand.More than happy to use her again and refer her to any and everyone” -Coach McBride, Head Football Coach/Campus Coordinator McKinney Boyd High School

"As an athletic program that is trying to be fiscally responsible we wanted to find a way to fundraise that mirrored our values. Working with Up Tempo was absolutely the answer because of the customer support they provide. We proposed questions and had excellent responses within minutes throughout the entire process. The efforts provided secured the best fundraising effort we have ever had and look forward to using them for years to come. Mindy who was our contact was simply the best and provided us the knowledge to bring to our parents which supported our positive experience."

-Kody Christensen, Assistant Athletic Coordinator, Head Girls Soccer Coach Wylie East High School

"Since I have been with Up Tempo Fundraising I have been able to not only reach my yearly goal, but continue to raise more money every year.  Mindy does a great job! Extremely organized and very easy to work with.  The whole process is the easiest effortless fundraiser I have ever done!  I highly recommend using Up Tempo as your primary fundraiser!!"

- Coach Andrews, Head Baseball Coach Wylie East High School


“UpTempo fundraising was a big success for our program. It was such an easy process for our kids,  and coaching staff.

The group from UpTempo took care of everything from start to finish!”

-Scott McGarrh, Head Baseball Coach, Frisco Liberty High School                                                                                                                    

"This was our first year using UpTempo and they could not have made things any easier. With a new program and booster club the ease of raising money is so important and they did just that for us. Not only was it easy, but our kids were engaged in the live kick off event. We look forward to working with them in the future."

-Jakeob Garner, Head Boys Basketball Coach, Prosper Walnut Grove High School

"Up Tempo was great for our group of athletes!  Mindy and Clay took the time to ensure our success starting with the kick-off live event.  Being so much more interactive that previous fundraisers really connected with our athletes and families.  We will be using them again and encourage all sports teams to give them a try!

-Jessica Richards, Assistant Athletics Campus Coordinator/Head Cross Country & Girls Track Coach McKinney North

-Megan Kirby, XC Coach Frisco Lebanon Trail High School


"This Up Tempo Fund Raiser event was more than we expected.  It created good Team building and it was a pleasant surprise to reach an unexpected amount.  Our Tennis Team will benefit much more with needed items and celebrations!  Thanks again for your time.  We are so thankful for Up Tempo."

-Heidi King, Head Tennis Coach Frisco Wakeland High School

"Working with Mrs. Teena Story at Uptempo not only made my life easier as a coach, but helped to provide my student-athletes with necessary equipment and funds. It was fun to have a competitive environment for the kick-off and then watch our funds grow each day. One thing I really liked is the push at the end of your deadline, where you see a significant growth towards the end of the fundraiser."

-Curtis Martin, Head Tennis Coach Prosper High School


"UpTempo has been an amazing experience for our program! Mrs. Story did an outstanding job, and everything was run professionally.

If you are looking for an easy, hassle-free fundraising partner, you cannot go wrong with UpTempo!!"

-Geoff Ajdukovich, Head Girls Soccer Coach Frisco Independence High School

“Our tennis teams used Up Tempo this year to raise money for our booster program, and I cannot say enough great things about this company. Raising money for a good cause was hassle free, and the process was very simple with the help of Teena Story. She made our players feel comfortable and at ease when setting up their individual player webpages. Frisco Independence Tennis had an awesome experience and will certainly be using Up Tempo again in the future”!

-Jenny Paine, Head Tennis Coach Frisco Independence High School


"This was our first year to use UpTempo. Miss Teena made everything so easy.  We made more in one hour than an entire year of fundraisers and concession stands. The kids were motivated and competed in their teams to bring in the most money for our program! We were able to raise money for our scholarships, signage and banners!"

-Amy Matlock, Head Girls Basketball Coach Frisco Independence High School

"We had a wonderful and successful experience with Teena Story and the Uptempo team.  Teena was extremely responsive and informative which resulted in a smooth & exciting launch. Our football team enjoyed the kickoff event and were so proud of the results. We highly recommend Uptempo and look forward to working with them year after year! This fundraiser made a huge difference for our football program and we couldn’t be happier!"

-Jamie Hardeman, Booster Club Frisco Emerson High School


"This was a fantastic fundraiser.  Super easy to set up and we are thankful for the job you did for us!  Everything was straight forward and all the documents you sent before the fundraiser started made things very simple.  We look forward to doing it again next season!"

-Rafael Flores, Head Girls Soccer Coach Prosper Rock Hill High School


"This fundraiser was a very simple process. Some of my athletes struggled to generate twenty contacts, but even if they had less it was still worth it. The organization and motivation on launch day helped engage the athletes. They learned the process and understood the goal, which lead to a great start that carried through the fundraiser."

-Megan Gnoza, Head Swim Coach Frisco Panther Creek High School

-Coach Lavender, Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator Lovejoy High School 

"It was such an awesome experience using UPTEMPO this year. It was fun and very stress free! The live event really separates this fundraiser from others of its kind. We more than doubled our fundraisers profits this year during a global pandemic which will go toward improving the experience for coaches and players in our program.

-Coach Marcus Shavers, Head Football Coach/Campus Coordinator McKinney High School

“I would definitely recommend Up Tempo fundraising!  I've used many fundraisers that take too high of a percentage of what you make and aren't very helpful.  Up Tempo is very helpful and is always available to answer questions or concerns.  You keep a very high percentage of the money you raise, and you're paid right after the fundraiser is done.  As a coach, I didn't have to put much time and preparation into the campaign at all.  This is the most money my program has ever made with a program.  It is definitely a win win situation!
Up Tempo is by far the best fundraiser I've ever gone with.  I will continue to use them in the future.”
-Sion King, Head Wrestling Coach, Prosper High School


"Sachse Softball loved using Up Tempo, we were able to raise a good amount of money on the day of the live event. Mindy made sure our athletes understood what was expected of them with clear instructions and she even brought candy to motivate the girls on the live event day! We all had so much fun and our program now has enough funds to buy all equipment we needed for the seasons to come. Thank you Up Tempo and Mindy!"

-Shawna Henderson, JV Softball Coach

"I would definitely recommend using Up Tempo fundraising.  They made it very easy and quick for our athletes to upload their list of email addresses.  I enjoyed being able to login and see our progress as funds started coming in so that I could give our kids updates and keep them excited about the amount we were raising for our program.  At the end of the fundraiser, Up Tempo took very little time to order the spirit wear we used as incentives, and then send us a final check for what we raised.  I will definitely use Up Tempo again next year for raise money for our program."

-Coach Durham, Head Girls Basketball Coach Allen High School

"Up Tempo is the most efficient and profitable fundraiser I have experienced. Communication and assistance were excellent, and the simple website interface allowed me to facilitate the fundraiser while not detracting from day to day teaching tasks. I would highly recommend Up Tempo Fundraising and will absolutely be using them again in the future." 

-Reece Kingcade, Canyon High School Choir 

“The Up Tempo fundraiser was a huge success for the Allen golf team.  The ease in which Mindy worked with us in getting our emails and video completed was amazing.  And to top that minimal effort off with financial success was phenomenal.  Definitely at the top of our fundraising list for next year.  Thanks Up Tempo.”

- Coach Gravley, Head Golf Coach Allen High School

"Up Tempo Fundraising is an outstanding fundraising company that we used in the spring of 2018 at Marble Falls High School.  The customer service, attention to detail and follow up is second to none.  They provided all of the details up front and there were no hidden fees or issues with monies raised.  They provided us with a customized approach in our fundraising efforts and created cloth items of top quality for our donors.  We were able to raise a significant amount of money that benefited our 7th - Varsity football teams.  I highly recommend Up Tempo Fundraising and will use them again in 2019 and many years to come."

- Coach Keith Christensen, Head Golf Coach Wylie High School

-Coach Pocock, Head  Boys Soccer Coach McKinney High School 

"Thank you so much for answering all of our questions and making fundraising so easy! You provided all of the material and assistance we needed. The fundraiser itself ran smoothly and we had no issues. Within a few days of the fundraiser ending you were ready to bring us a check.

"My experience with Up Tempo Fundraising was great from start to finish! It was easy to set up and Mindy provided outstanding assistance during each step of the process.

It also made receiving and keeping track of our donations simple and stress free. I highly recommend Up Tempo Fundraising and will definitely be using them again in the future!"

-Matthew Miller, Randall High School Choir

"Working with Up Tempo fundraising was a great experience for our orchestra program.  They were very helpful every step of the way and helped us raiser over $10,000 towards our spring trip!  We are definitely recommending UpTempo to other music programs in our area – their platform and customer service can’t be beat!"

"Hello Coaches, If you do fundraisers and you aren’t using Up Tempo, then you are losing out on the best fundraiser around. As you know most fundraisers take a lot of time for the coaches and parents, but using the Up Tempo fundraiser gives you that time back. I have done it for the last 3 years and it allows me to keep my valuable time for my team and I have made more money for my program than I could have imagined. Give it a try and I promise you will be begging them to come back year after year. It was the best move I could have made for my program."
