How to Increase School Fundraising Revenue
1) Involve the principal - if you get the principal on your side, excited and throwing contests, greeting parents on kickoff day, etc. more money will be raised.
2) Start earlier - if you have a profitable fundraiser that you can start earlier in the school year, your school will raise more. There is a lot more fundraising competition later in the year. The second or third week of school is the best time to hold a school-wide fundraiser.
3) Reward sellers - Anytime you can get parents and children excited, you win! Consider a prize program or another incentive to offer children. It's proven that they will work harder for a cause if there is a personal reward to earn.
Hope that helps!
