The key to successful fundraising is to have a clearly defined purpose for the funds raised. The purpose must be aligned with the goal areas of the School Improvement Plan which is designed for the continuous improvement of student learning. The School Improvement Plan is one of the most important school documents as it guides the school strategic planning process and all monies raised and expended must be aligned with the plan.
Fundraising for a purpose may target schoolyard activities, curriculum needs, library, teaching, and field trip resources, to name a few areas directly connected to the School Improvement Plan. Other purposeful fund raising activities may be designed to rally the school community around a specific pillar area in the Plan. For additional help, refer to the fundraising policy/procedure.
All fundraising activities that involve the sale of food and beverages on school premises must comply with the School Food and Beverage policy (PPM150) Nutrition Standards effective September 1, 2011.
