With budgets being squeezed, fundraising is more important than ever before
Finance plays a considerable role in school life. As an official or unofficial fundraiser, there may well be a lot of pressure on you to identify the funds available to your school. There is very little training around at present for fundraisers, but teachers are savvy creatures. By applying similar approaches to fundraising as you would to other aspects of school life, it is likely that you will be able to hit the ground running. Here is some advice to help you.
Keep a file
Having a clear head and clear file will make you a more effective fundraiser. You will be dealing with multiple bids for one project while liaising with a range of people to ensure that what you are bidding for is value for money. This is not possible to hold in your head – a file will be a great support.
