These days, high schools do their best to make sure they turn out well-rounded members of society. There are endless amounts of sports, clubs, and groups that kids can join so that their interests are nurtured and encouraged. But the state of school funding in the current economic situation means that a high school fundraiser is going to be a fact of life for each of the students at some point if they want to keep their clubs and sports running smoothly. Whether they play on a sports team, sing in the choir, or belong to a civics club, chances are the group will require some extra money, and a high school fundraiser can be just the ticket to keep them on their feet.
When you’re organizing your high school fundraising idea, firstly you need to have a meeting to discuss your goals and targets. What exactly do you need money for, and how much? Have you taken into account projected expenses for the whole year, including an emergency fund? You want to get this high school fundraiser right the first time and not have to run a second one soon after, so make an effort to be realistic about what amount of money you actually need.
Choosing a high school fundraiser that will work well with your group is important, as is keeping in mind your customer base. Who do you expect will be being the most products from your high school fundraiser? Is this something you’ll probably keep on campus amongst the students, or do you think they’ll most likely take their fundraising efforts out into their families and the wider community? There are all kinds of fundraisers available, everything from candy bars to scratch cards to tea and coffee, so you don’t have to worry about finding a fundraiser that will fit your situation. Browse through our high school fundraiser pages, and if you are in doubt about anything, give your fundraising consultant a call to discuss your options.
