How to Have a Successful School Fundraiser

Here's the top 6 things you can do to have a successful school fundraiser:

1) Plan ahead.  The earlier you organize your thoughts the better.  Asking when, how, who questions can help you put into motion a plan.

2) Have a goal.  Make sure you know how much you want to raise.  It seems trivial, but you will be able to determine to what extent you should promote, reward and incentivise.

3) Start early.  If you start your school fundraiser in the first few weeks of school, you will have less competition and generate more interest.

4) Get people involved.  Involving administration and the principal in a fundraiser can single-handedly make the biggest impact on your fundraiser.

5) Market your fundraiser. Spread the word any way you can.  The more you get the word out, the more important the fundraiser becomes in the eyes of the community.

6) Reward hard work.  Put into place incentives and rewards.  These will keep the fundraiser exciting and if done right will get parents and students on board!
