UPPING THE FUN, SPREADING THE LOAD & SUPPORTING OUR SCHOOL
In the last year the FOMs and Fair Committee teams reviewed the fundraising challenges for our school and in 2015 we would like to approach fundraising with greater emphasis on the kids, family fun, and spreading the workload across the year.
We're a fun bunch (yes, all of us!), meeting at all sorts of venues, and we'd love for a few more of you to join us.
Traditionally a large fundraising expectation fell on the fair alone, putting added pressure on parents, kids, and teachers alike in the critical final term. By introducing a spread of fundraising activities throughout the year we believe we can deliver a series of fun community events, for parents and children, that are less stressful overall but still deliver against the fundraising target.
This year's Board of Trustees fundraising target is $85,700. (Last year's target was $98,300 which the community well exceeded). The results of the recent fundraising wish-list survey are currently under review to determine where these funds will be spent – for those of you who responded to the survey, thank you for your contribution.
We plan to achieve the target of $85,700 as follows:
Of course if we exceed these we'd be delighted but overall our hope is that mix of events will serve to bring a steadier pace to fundraising, increase the fun factor and remove "Fear of the Fair” from parents' mindsets.
If you prefer to help without committing to monthly meetings there are lots of smaller tasks we would appreciate your help with such as making signs, driving for food pick-ups, etc. Please just drop us a line with your interest.If you are interested in any of these positions please contact Jo - email@example.com or Lucy - firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for supporting your school community during 2015.
