Can Parents Help My School Fundraiser Succeed!
Yes, the parents in your school are the key component to your fundraising success!
Take the time to plan out the fundraiser so it's simple for parents to understand and participate in. Set an expectation such as the number of items a parent should sell. Communicate dates effectively. In other words, make it important and tell everyone what to do.
These simple factors are often overlooked leaving parents unprepared on turn-in day. Things like not understanding what is being sold, by whom and to whom top the list of confusions that leave fundraising packets in the recycle bin.
Reverse the trend of low participation in your fundraiser! Just make it easy, set your expectations and make it important! The parents will do the rest of the work.
Ok, until next time!
