Extend Your School Fundraiser Beyond Parents!
Let's face it... If you're school is marketing for fundraising dollars just from the parents at the school, you're missing out on 99.99999999999999999% of the population (or some such similarly rediculous number).
It may just be fine to rely on parents because they will take responsibility for their children's education. But, what about friends and coworkers and relatives that would happily support the child as well?
Chances are, they would like to help support the school and classroom as well. After all, we know that the nation is interested in helping schools in need. But only if they are invited and encouraged.
So, the next time you are thinking about elementary school fundraising and are planning your next fundraiser, ask yourself if the fundraiser is limited to just support from parents or if it goes nationwide.
We need to think differently about school fundraising and it starts by going nationwide.
Alrighty, until next time!
