During your campaign, you will need to motivate students
to participate in the campaign every week not just last minute, on the day of
the event. To accomplish this we
recommend weekly drawings. Here are
a few ideas:
every Friday a voluntary turn in day.
each student turn in at least 1/3 of their goal each Friday to win prizes for
classrooms and participants.
random drawing/s for all the students that turn in at least 1/3 of their goal.
prize for the most money turned in each Friday.
prize winners before the end of the day.
Communicate with parents to keep the
fundraising campaign moving along. Be
sure to email your FundMonkey web page and the donation codes at least once a
week to parents, to encourage on-line donation requests.
Work with local clinics and emergency responders to
schedule an assembly addressing healthy activities and choices for school
children. Seek assistance from
hospitals, fire departments, local colleges or university extension offices.
Coordinate with school principals. If your district has a healthy choices
curriculum, the timeframe of the fundraising campaign would be a great couple
of weeks to implement the material.
