WOW! Fundraising Blog

Fundraising for a project doesn’t always happen over night. A lot of the time, depending on the size of the project and the amount of funds you need to collect, it could take years of perseverance to achieve your goal. Just ask the community of Middletown where the community and the school raised $55,000 for a new playground. The five-year fundraising project started with a group of PTA moms that had “a dream and no money”. They discussed how they could raise funds and through gif auctions and donations, they were able to raise the funds needed.

Two Crystal Lake Central High School students are making a difference in their community by fundraising to provide Eberhart Elementary with much needed gym supplies. The two 15-year old students were motivated to fundraise when they heard of an account of a student from Eberhart Elementary kicking around a tattered ball. So as a school project that would benefit the community, the two students decided to raise the money to buy sets of basketballs, volleyballs, footballs, soccer balls, hula hoops, playground balls, jump ropes, and other equipment.

On Nov. 5, Whatcom Middle School caught fire around 1 a.m. The building, which has served Whatcom County kids for more than 100 years, received excessive fire and water damage. The student spirit, however, was not damaged. Whatcom sixth-grade twins took it upon themselves to try to help the school recover some of what it lost. With the help of their mother, the twins were able to successfully fundraise $3,500 by standing outside the Barkley Village Haggen and asking people to help if possible. The twins even put in $92 from their own piggy banks.

Most Principals wouldn’t think about it at this time of year, but a night under the stars may be quite rewarding. Principal Bill Cain from Village Elementary School had a unique school fundraising idea incentive for his students. If they could reach their fundraising goal he would spend the night on the schools roof. Well the students ended up reaching their goal, fundraising $15,000, and the school’s roof is where the Principal stayed.
