We have a lot of experience helping schools to achieve budget success and meeting these financial goals really comes down to 4 key steps. Take a look at our helpful guide to get you started on the right track to meeting your budget goals.
Decide exactly what the money will be used for. Be specific, parents will better support a fundraiser when they can visualize how it will directly benefit their child. “General budget needs” does not create a visual because it’s simply too broad. Be specific by listing which field trips, assemblies, specific school event(s) or playground enhancements, etc. will receive money through the efforts of your fundraiser.
Determine the total amount you need/want to raise through your fundraiser. Add in the estimated cost of the fundraiser to net your total budget goal. Having a set goal makes the process of budgeting much more achievable!
Determine the amount each student will need to raise to meet your budget goal. To do this, simply divide your monetary goal by the # of enrolled students.
Start thinking about pledge incentives to promote pledges.
How do you make sure you achieve budget success? Do you incorporate any of these four simple steps? It would be great to continue the conversation either in the comments section or on our TGMC Facebook page.
