Budget cuts are being made all over the country. Sadly these cuts are affecting education drastically and schools simply do not have the money for all the different educational and extra-curricular activities that they used to. That is why schools are turning more and more to fundraisers to help raise the money needed.
School fundraising programs usually and traditionally involved having the pupils at the school sell products to help the school or a specific extra-curricular activity. Fundraising is a great way to procure new computers, instruments or anything else your school may need that there simply isn't enough money for in the budget.
A new school fundraising idea is through easy fundraising. Register with easyfundraising.org.uk and send out a newsletter or email to students and parents asking them to sign up to the site. The service is completely free to use and the school will start to receive donations and raise funds every time a purchase is made.
Generally speaking the key to successful school fundraising is to sell a product that the students in the school will be interested in selling (or buying). If they are excited about selling the product or service then they are much more likely to be invested in what they are doing and this will lead to much better results in the long run. It is also sometimes a good idea to offer some kind of reward to the student that has the best results in the fundraiser to give them some kind of incentive to try their best and get the most sales possible.
Another proven fundraising idea is to sell a coupon book that is full of discounts and other offers from local businesses in the area. The school will usually receive all of the proceeds from the sales of the voucher books.
They are many different school fundraisers that are available to schools looking to raise money for education or the arts. If you are looking to start a fundraiser you should consider the demographic of your school and your potential customers to decide which fundraiser may be right for you school.
