We all know that teachers are the glue that hold a school together. They’re the ones that directly teach and influence our children as they work with them during the weekdays. But teachers are also an intricate part of the school’s success. So, why not involve them in raising the funds needed to encourage their success with your students? It’s a tireless job teaching your students, but added incentive may pique their interest. The following is a list to help motivate the teachers at your school to participate in school fundraising:
Get them involved. Teachers may have valuable insight regarding the school fundraising, such as what products to sell, how orders should be handled, or ways to improve the overall fundraising efforts. They may also be more prone to help if they feel included from the start.
Make helping simple. If you send out order forms or announcements through the teachers for the parents/guardians, make it easy for them to distribute to the students. Make sure to have the copies made and all the forms organized for the teachers.
Valuable incentives always help. If there are excess funds raised, give them to the classroom that meets a specific goal for classroom supplies. Teachers are more likely to stand behind the fundraiser if the incentives are meaningful and educational.
Remember that in school fundraising everyone wants to provide the best educational tools possible for the students. Most teachers recognize the importance of school fundraising and are typically willing to volunteer their time, so get everyone involved!
