There's a real phenomenon called 'Fundraising Fatigue'. It's characterized by a reluctance to support fundraisers and other events at school as a result of too many fundraisers.
Pay attention to how parents feel about your events and activities. Search out the honest feedback but keep in mind just about everyone these days is somewhat resistant to charitable giving.
This resistance to charity sounds like 'I'd rather...' and may not be helpful. What is, is getting feedback about the way the school feels given it's various activities.
What you should look for is a balance of fun activities in varying categories. Fundraising should be heavy-hitting so you can spend the majority of your time on other productive, fun and educational pursuits.
Balance is the key!
Ok, until next time!
