1. Get your whole school involved teachers, staff, parents, students, even sport coaches and neighbors.
Incentivize fundraising with fun prizes and perks, like fundraising badges, a classroom pizza party, or double recess if the whole school reaches its fundraising goal.
2. Start strong.
Jumpstart your fundraiser by getting your Principal, Superintendent, or School Mascot involved. Seeing a local celebrity as part of the fundraiser will encourage others to join.
3. Customize sponsorships.
Utilize the resources of your PTA to reach out to local businesses. Offer unique sponsorship rewards, like hand written thank you cards from each class, an office visit from the school band, or a mural from the advanced art class.
The PiggyBackr experience was much smoother and easier than any other fundraisers I had done before, which mostly were comprised of door-to-door fundraising. PiggyBackr makes it easy to catalog and remember how much you have raised, who has donated and how much so that you can thank them, and how much longer you have to go. From the PiggyBackr fundraiser I learned that no matter how insurmountable a goal may seem it is always possible. Raising over $1000 seemed to much of a goal to achieve but I persisted anyways and in the end through hard work and determination I was able to raise over double my initial goal. - Thomas Chabot Space and Science, Galaxy Explorers Program
