Benefits of Online Fundraising for School Fundraising

Posted by on Oct 17, 2012 in School Fundraising, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Benefits of Online Fundraising for School Fundraising

School Fundraising has become a hot topic over the years.  The government has advised that School Councils should not be raising monies for the basics like textbooks, pencils, and basic classroom supplies.  Frankly, none of it should be falling back on Schools and School Councils to be raising monies for items that are necessary for student engagement and learning.  Unfortunately, the tax payer pays and then the parents and community pay again.  There are so many discussions on this issue, you can check out  http://discuss.peopleforeducation.ca/forum?pageSize=500  to hear more about what the community is saying.

Stop spending inordinate hours and manpower planning a School BBQ, selling food for a fundraiser, or selling any other chachka that parents and community feel obligated to purchase.
