Variety School Approaches to Public Awareness.
Baker, Susan E.; Kai, Carole
A novel fundraising approach for a nonprofit school for handicapped children in Hawaii includes bed racing, donation of entertainers' time for a concert, and a parade featuring children from the school. The fundraising event is also viewed as a way to fund unserved children with subtle learning problems. Suggestions are made for successful fundraising efforts (such as following up after the event to say "thank you" and listening to ideas for next year) and for child-find attempts (including using posters for advertisement and having major sponsors visit the facility to gain information about the event in which they want to participate).
