Scholastic Book Fair Fundraiser - Librarians, Schools benefit from Book Sales...

Scholastic Book Fair Fundraiser
Scholastic Book Fair Fundraiser

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? 

Chime in!

PTAs and Local Business working together for both school and local economy.

Online PTA combines information service and fund raising platform. There are twenty advertising spaces for small local businesses. Each space provides remarkable value for full page add directed both school and local communities for say $50 per slot raising $1000 p.a. - subscription to Online PTA $50 p.a.
Of course who advertises and at what rate is decided by the individual PTA/PTO.
