With many school budget cuts, it is nearly impossible to keep some after school activities open. This is where fundraising comes into play. Holding fundraisers to help keep your after school activities open while not dipping into the school’s budget is a great idea.

Students from Smoketree Elementary have joined Pennies for Peace, a fundraising program that promotes education in remote areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan. The students study the cultures and raise money for them at the same time. A fourth grade teacher, interested in helping the foreign schools, brought the program to the school. She explained to the students how just one penny would buy a pencil over in Pakistan and Afghanistan, 15 cents could by a notebook, $600 would a teacher’s annual salary, and $5,000 would support an existing school for one year.

Last year students from Richmond Public School hosted a school fundraiser to raise money for juvenile diabetes. The fundraiser started when a student was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and her best friend wanted to find a way to help. With the schools help they ran a fundraiser and each class was allowed to dance during their gymnasium period. Even though the students have graduated, the school continues to hold the fundraiser and support the cause.

When Langston Charter Middle School decided to hold their annual Relay for Life fundraiser, eighth-grader Bracy Black didn’t want to do the same old thing. He was tired of bake sales and door-to-door Chick-fil-A calendar and raffle ticket sales. It was time to do something new for this fundraiser. Bracey enlisted the help of Golden Skate Park’s owner to let the school hold a Skate Night fundraising event. The owner generously is allowing the school to hold the event.
