Our main goal for our fundraising efforts, because it is the largest single expense for a new school, and an important part of student’s social interaction, is to raise enough money to build a playground. Once this is complete, we will be working with the principal to determine other needs for the school such as additional gym supplies, books, electronics and learning tools which we will also direct funds to as needed. Often, field trips and extra programs such as swimming, in-line skating, artist in residence etc…are also funded, at least in part, by a school’s fundraising society such as us.
While there are many grants and donation possibilities, including a casino, that we will be taking advantage of to help raise funds for this playground, fundraisers such as our bottle drives, read-a-thon and other ongoing events are very important to add to our goal as well as to meet some of the matching fund requirements of the grants.
