Hi all, I have never done a fundraiser, so I need some help. My daughters school had some district-wide budget cuts (Who's didn't, right?) that is affecting the 5th grade camp that she will be going to in May. Basically, all of the 5th graders in the district (4 elementary schools - about 5,000 kids!) go to a 3 day camp every year where they meet the other kids and get ready for their send off to middle school. This year, the district is not able to provide any money, but each school's PTSA is. So, there is a $40,000 deficit! There is money being raised around town by certain groups, but I thought it would be cool to do a PC fundraiser. I emailed the school's PTSA and this is the response I got: We can not do this type of fund raiser, backed by the school or the PTA. We have been approached by several consultants from several companies. BUT you can do one that you host and donate the money directly to the camp. I too sell a line and will be doing that way. Call me and I will give you some more this on how to make this a success. I guess I don't know where to go from here. I am going to call her, but how do I advertise or let the people that care about Camp Casey know that I am doing this fundraiser? Thanks!
