School Event Fundraising
In addition to holding sponsored activities, schools are also fantastic venues for fundraising events like recitals and talent shows.
If the school already has a choir, ask them to prepare a special program that can be performed one evening. Invite everyone from the community and charge admission, with proceeds benefiting your fundraising cause. You can also sell refreshments and snacks to raise additional funds.
Alternatively, you can ask groups of students to put an act together into a school-wide talent show. Charge admission into the show and make sure to give out prizes for the top act, the funniest and the most creative talents. The kids will love participating and the fundraising event is sure to be a big hit in your local community too.
Involving the School in Your Fundraising
There are many reasons why you may choose to fundraise at a school. In some cases, the school may be raising money directly to pay for a special trip or project; in other cases, schools will help you fundraise on behalf of your charitable cause.
The first step to getting any school involved in fundraising is to discuss your plans with the headmaster. Depending on the type of fundraising event you’d like to have, you may also need support from teachers and from the community.
In most cases, schools are happy to help out with a charitable cause, especially if it can also be used as a learning experience for their students.
