Raising Funds for Your Child's School: Over Sixty Great Ideas for Parents and Teachers.
Gensheimer, Cynthia Francis
This handbook is designed to share successful, creative ideas and proven methods for fund raising at the elementary school level. Suggestions are based on the author's personal experience as a PTA fund raiser and on interviews conducted nationwide with people involved in fund raising. Following the acknowledgements and preface, the introduction offers tips for getting started. Chapter 1 describes how to organize athletic marathons, such as walkathons, jogathons, and field days. The subsequent chapters offer planning guidelines for the following activities: academic marathons, book fairs, clothesline sales, merchandise sales, auctions, fun fairs, and food and entertainment events. The final chapter explores ways to solicit contributions from the school community, including parents, alumni, business, and neighbors. Sample worksheets, publicity forms, letters, posters, and announcements are included. (LMI)
