I am very pleased to announce that I have just written a brand new e-book, titled “Oh Snap! I’m a First-Time School Fundraiser! What Do I Do Now?”
It is a 60 page report that is geared toward people who are new to the field of school fundraising. It is even helpful to people who have been fundraising for a while, but who haven’t had that much success.
Many times, a mom or a dad suddenly finds him or herself suddenly thrust into the “voluntary” role of fundraiser-in-chief at their child’s school. However, it is also likely that this mom or dad doesn’t have a lot of fundraising experience.
Of course, school fundraising is an important job, so the pressure is on not to screw it up.
This can be a very stressful situation.
But that’s where my new e-book comes in! “Oh Snap! I’m a First-Time School Fundraiser! What Do I Do Now?” will walk you through some of the most important questions you will face, right off the bat.
WE ANSWER QUESTIONS SUCH AS:
- How do I pick the right fundraising events?
- How do I get more volunteers?
- How do I get parents to read the things I send home?
- How do I get the teachers and the principal on my side?
- How do I make our school more donor-friendly?
- How do I protect the money we raise from theft and embezzlement?
- How do I keep fundraising from taking over my life?
- How do I build (or rebuild) trust in our school’s PTO?
- How do I use the latest technology to increase the power of our message?
- How do I get local businesses to support our school when there are so many other schools and non-profits begging for money?
If these are questions that you have been worrying about yourself, my new e-book is for you!
BUT, THERE IS ONE VERY IMPORTANT REASON NOT TO BUY MY E-BOOK
You’ll notice that in the list above, I did NOT mention anything about “product fundraisers”. If you are looking for advice on how to sell more cookie dough or wrapping paper, this is not the e-book for you.
I have a strong philosophy about school fundraising- I believe that it should be “Do-It-Yourself”. I really hate the idea of paying some company well over half of the money your school raises, just so THEY can make a profit!
I believe in the amazing power of home-grown fundraising. I’m talking about events like school carnivals, walk-a-thons, community rummage sales, Saturday morning bake sales, and “pay-what-you-want” car washes. These events can both raise the money your school needs and build a strong community spirit. Plus, you don’t have to send any profits anywhere except your school’s own bank account!
Of course, slick fundraising companies promise “KWIK & E-Z” money, but is that really what you want your kids to learn? Do our kids really need to be bribed with the cheap prizes some of these companies peddle?
Call me old-fashioned, but I think the reward is in the experience of pulling together as community to take care of itself.
Besides, aren’t you getting sick of having to ask your friends, family, and co-workers to buy cookie dough? Wouldn’t you rather invite them to a carnival? Or a HUGE flea market on a Saturday morning? At least these are fun things to DO!
I am tired of being asked to turn my children into little salesmen of cheap merchandise and junk-food.
