You need a school fundraising plan!The more you can create a cohesive fundraising plan for your school, the more you'll benefit!
Consider this... By pulling together to promote one effective fundraising effort instead of many, you'll realize the following benefits:
1) Raise more $
2) Fundraise Less
3) Keep distractions in school to a minimum
4) Minimize papers home to busy parents
5) Increase school spirit around ONE cause!
When you sit down to plan your fundraising strategy for the year, consider how keeping things simple could raise you more! Conversely, does adding a bunch of little fundraisers undermine the respect parents have for the school?
I know first-hand that the offers that a school promotes does in fact leave an impression on the parent.
Simplify your plan and get everyone behind you! Save time and effort and fundraise LESS but MORE EFFECTIVELY!
Is there anything you can think of that you could do to get your school to rally around one main fundraiser?
As always, comments encouraged.
Ok, until next time!
