Are your fundraising efforts up-to-date? Is your school trying new fundraising approaches or are you still stuck selling the same products year after year? Ask any successful charity and you will discover they are not selling stuff but rather asking for donations.
What is holding your school back from engaging your community and asking for donations? School fundraising is now easier than ever with the arrival of the Scholmark Foundation. Scholmark helps Canadian Schools raise funds online. Perhaps your school is hesitant to ask the community for money - schools are, after all, publicly funded. But so are hospitals and universities, and they have always sought and obtained money from donors in the community. It is because of their successful fundraising efforts that they have taken research and innovation to levels that would not be possible with government funding alone. Everyone wins when fundraising is done, so shouldn’t your local school?
