Did you know that many schools only see a portion of the money their students raise during traditional
fundraising campaigns? The rest goes to a company you’ve probably never heard of. Add to that the hours
of academic instruction time that schools lose hyping prizes for top-sellers and explaining the
fundraiser to students. If you’re a parent, you’ve probably been faced with the decision of allowing
your student to walk around the neighborhood selling door-to-door, or just taking the catalogue to
work with you and selling to your coworkers.
Many schools also have smaller fundraisers such as bake sales and raffles, but these often don’t offer
much return on their investment. No matter how you look at it, most fundraising ideas for schools involve
a lot of precious time - the school’s, yours, and your child’s. Not to mention they don’t always enrich
the cause they’re meant to support.
GoFundMe helps change all that.
Spread the word about your school fundraiser by using GoFundMe’s built in sharing tools via email,
Facebook, Twitter, and more. You can even embed your fundraiser in your school’s website! All donations
to your school are securely processed by our payment partners and are available immediately. Compare
GoFundMe’s 5% fee with the amount charged by catalogue companies and other traditional school fundraisers,
and subtract the amount of time that you’re going to save! Why not ask Grandma and the neighbors to donate?
They might just appreciate not having to buy more wrapping paper and cookies. Stop searching for new
fundraising ideas for schools and start raising money in minutes with GoFundMe!
