Your Guide to Fundraising the Fun Way!

Your Guide to Fundraising the Fun Way!

Raise funds for your school or organisation – get the pupils, parents and teachers involved!

So you need to raise funds for your school or organisation but you have no idea where to start? Well fear no longer! Able Canopies have created an Official Able Canopies PTA Fundraising Pack which has been designed specifically with teachers and PTA members in mind for schools, playgroups and nurseries.

Within this free pack you will find 28 fundraising ideas – one for every letter in the alphabet from A right through to Z to help you decide where to start with your fundraising. Here are some ideas to get you started…

usic Concert – Host a music concert on your premises or local village hall and ask local budding singers or bands to take stage voluntarily, charge admission to spectators and have snacks and drinks on sale.

ecipe Book – Create a recipe book with the parents and teachers recipes in or why not create a recipe book with simple recipes ideal for children! When you get these published ask for a discount as it is to raise funds or ask local businesses to advertise it in to reduce the printing costs for you. You can sell these from your school office and also ask local shops and business to sell copies for you. Remember to advertise in the local newspaper, local radio station and your school newsletter you could also ask parents and staff to spread the word.

These ideas are presented as a fun and colourful two page spread which is great to print out and pin up on your staff notice board to get everyone thinking of what fundraising event you can hold next! It’s great to get everyone involved and having fun as the atmosphere before and during the events helps to bring in more customers and more funds!

There are many testimonials from our customers in the pack that funded their canopy through fundraising events. You can find out what events were successful for them to help you plan your event just like at Bramford Pre School Playgroup in Suffolk who raised funds for their Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy through fundraising events.

“We held an Easter social event – a raffle, a sale of refreshments and a visit from the Easter Bunny which was attended by the children and their parents. Local businesses were kind enough to supply some great raffle prizes.”
If you haven’t held a fundraising event before or are not sure of what you need to do in order to organise certain events then don’t worry! We have thought of that too! We have created a helpful fundraising checklist to help you check-off each task as you go along helping your event run smoothly with no problems along the way, avoiding any last minute dramas.
