Scholastic Book Fair Fundraiser - Librarians, Schools benefit from Book Sales...
Hey, does your school host Scholastic book fairs? I bet so. It would appear most schools are dialed into the Scholastic book fair. My kids school recently hosted one. Overall I enjoyed it. We found a number of things we were interested in, and it was well-organized.
Funny story though.
We rode bikes to school and got caught in a serious rainstorm. Essentially we were at the book fair for over an hour waiting for the rain to slow down.
I spent a lot of money by being there so long!
Schools sometimes consider these fundraisers as they provide money back to the host. As far as profits I've heard that 20% goes back to the group.
Hey, speaking of that... The next time someone tells you that the Believe fundraisers only give 40% or 50% back should give more, just remind them that many fundraisers run at 10-20% back to the group!
What do you think of Scholastic book fairs?
