There are many communities all over the country where insufficient budgets make fundraising a necessity to pay for needed supplies, services and programs.

There are benefits to involving elementary age students in the process of raising money for a cause besides the obvious.

The individual students quickly learn to listen to ideas, contribute their own ideas, participate in forming team goals, make decisions, make compromises, discover the impact of his participation in the group, and meet a challenge. There is value in learning to adjust team plans in response to change, as well.
