Fall Fundraising Ideas to Improve Student Engagement

Good school fundraisers require more than good products. They need an excellent support system. Your input, the programs you use to manage the money and logistics, PTA organizations, and student and parent engagement all weigh in on the final revenue and success of a fundraiser.

According to Crowd101, “71% of parents have sold fundraising products to friends, family, and coworkers,” and this nearly universal experience relies heavily on student engagement.

When your students or program participants aren’t excited about the fundraiser, you won’t see as much parental involvement or high participant energy throughout the fundraiser, and that can ruin your fundraising goals. As you start to develop your fall fundraising ideas for the next school year, set some time aside so you can strategize about raising student engagement levels.

Try these five approaches so students are invested, interested, and able to participate.
