Four Ways to Engage Children in School Fundraising

We’re on a mission to make fundraising a more fun and all-around valuable program for schools and families alike. We've compiled a list of ways for parents to engage their kiddos:

Set a Goal
First things first: how much money do you hope to raise? Set a realistic goal with milestones along the way. The child should be rewarded for each milestone reached in order to keep their drive and enthusiasm up.

Give Them Responsibility
Take advantage of school fundraisers as a way for your child to learn new skills. Give them some age-appropriate responsibility over the process and who knows, they could be the next big entrepreneur one day!

No More “Stranger Danger!”
Door-to-door selling of chocolate bars is a thing of the past. Now a lot of companies are taking orders online and a certain percentage goes back to the school.

Sharing an online fundraiser is easy. Have your child help you send an email out to all your friends and family. Or, use Facebook for an even bigger reach!

Take Advantage of Their Child-like Charm
What is more heart-warming than a letter or picture from a child? Send along special little packages to family and friends in the mail and they’re sure to cave in to requests for help!
