101 Low and No-Cost Promotions for Your School Fundraiser

I believe there is one relationship within a school that is the most important - the relationship between teacher and parent.  Teachers that communicate to parents directly and encourage a partnership of student development and learning create a bond and trust and parents want to be actively involved.


Enter school fundraisers. 


Many times, teachers resist supporting fundraising from the parent group or principal because it interferes with the teachers ability to teach effectively or may compromise that trust that is being built with the parents.


When school fundraising events and other activities become too much for parents, they withdraw.  This means less excitement overall which translates to less involvement in the classroom.


There is a solution.


Schools that fundraise less but more effectively do not have to interfere with school time and make demands on teachers that cause resistance.  In fact, a focused two week fundraiser can take care of the entire year's fundraising if done effectively.  This means fewer interruptions and demands coming between parent groups, administration, teachers and parents.


Schools that overwhelm parents with too many activities, events or ways to get involved lose today's busy parents.  They just don't know what to focus on when there are too many things going on.


Here ya go!


I post this free book in it's entirety in order to make any school fundraiser more effective so less fundraising can take place.  Please take a look and share as you see fit.  I would appreciate any feedback at or on my school fundraising blog.


Thanks so much for taking a look at the book and I hope it helps!



Please use the download link at the top of the presentation to get a copy and then share any way you see fit.  Thanks so much!
