A Handbook on Developing Means to Underwrite Performances at National Conventions by Talented Students from Urban School Districts.
National School Boards Association, Washington, DC. Council of Urban Boards of Education.
In response to the lack of creative or academic performances by urban students at conventions of the National School Boards Association (NSBA), this handbook, directed at urban schools, was produced. It is a step-by-step guide to raising money to support student performers at national events. Section 1 discusses the need for fundraising activities of a professional nature. Section 2 describes how to plan a fundraising program, and Section 3 outlines the four basic steps to a successful campaign--identifying sources of support (individuals, local businesses, and foundations), developing a plan to approach these sources, implementing the plan, and follow-up. Fundraising activities are suggested in Section 4, while Section 5 discusses money management. Section 6 lists sources of information relevant to fundraising. Section 7 contains seven sample fundraising policies from school boards across the nation. The last two sections explain how to compete for performing at NSBA conventions and give tips for achieving fundraising goals. (CMG)
