School fundraising in Massachusetts pays for services and supplies that cost more than the schools are budgeted for. High school sports programs and all the associated costs like insurance, transportation, and publicity fall into this ‘underfunded’ category. Then there are textbooks, class trips, laptops and computers, lab equipment, textbooks, activities, educational field trips, and yearbooks. Massachusetts schools are always called upon to do more with less funding.
Having stated the obvious, how can you get your very busy teaching staff on-board with school fundraising? Teaching staff are not required to participate in fundraising. As over-worked employees that may be under-paid as well, what incentives would you employ to encourage participation in your school?
For decades, teachers have found it necessary to purchase supplemental classroom supplies from time to time. Teachers that understand that the proceeds from your campaigns will benefit their class and make their jobs easier are more likely to get on board with your fundraising. Teachers that are enthusiastic about a campaign are likely to inspire their students to participate. Make it easy for teachers to provide notifications and order forms for their students – so ask for their help and make it easy for them.
Provide incentives for everyone to be on-board with the fundraising campaign. It is safe to say that teachers want to provide more learning opportunities for their students whenever possible. Provide incentives deemed as meaningful and educational. To get them to stand behind your efforts, ask your teachers what they want – or need – in their classrooms.
