School Fundraising Gaps - Reasons for Poor Fundraising Results...

School Fundraising Revenue Gap
School Fundraising Revenue Gap


I ran across a news story (link below) where one school raised $22k and another raised $2k.

There is talk about the income of parents being different, the number of students being more at one school and possibility that there may have been some donated items.  These just aren't true reasons - there's more here than meets the eye.

Here's the thing... it's not economic and it has nothing to do with the number of students.  If we were to take a closer look, you'd see a difference in the way the fundraising is done at the various schools.

I do see a post or two about this every year and it seems that the obvious reasons are overlooked.  One school made more of an effort.  One school made fundraising more important.  One school felt more of a need.

Today, many schools are able to earn $22k in ONE two week fundraising campaign if it's important and effort is put behind it.  If a school raised only $2k, they are not fundraising properly.  In fact, they may be doing nothing at all.

When we look at gaps in school fundraising revenue, it comes down to who did what and what did they do.  Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
