Although they often do, schools should not underestimate the value of fundraising. Fundraising can help schools offer scholarships and new programs, maintain academic excellence, and complete major projects.
Having a well-planned and well-executed fundraising strategy can make all the difference between thriving and simply surviving for most schools.
Fundraising might allow your school to offer daycare, more extracurricular activities, after-school clubs, and educational programs.
There are many benefits to fundraising. Students gain valuable leadership skills and confidence. Fundraisers require students to work with each other, as well as their parents and teachers in order to meet their overall goal, and this teaches them teamwork. Students are also taught the importance of community, creativity, caring about others, and improving the common environment.
Fundraising also allows parents to get involved and play a more active role in their children’s lives. Finally, additional funds allow schools to improve their facilities and programs. It’s a win-win.
