Putting the Brakes on School Fundraisers
In actuality, they are limiting fundraisers which is a good thing! We need more schools to stop hitting up parents non-stop for money and this is a good example of how to do it - by taking a stand!

Fundraisers your school considers should be scrutinized more. Make sure they are critical and have a high chance of success. Then they should be made as impactful as possible. Schools can have one main fundraiser a semester with a sprinkling of the stuff schools have become accustomed to such as yearbooks, photos or perhaps spirit gear sales.
Take a stand and limit your fundraisers!
The choice to do so automatically puts more importance on the fundraisers you decide to support. Make a good push on the remaining few and you'll wonder why you had so many fundraisers to begin with.
