Help Our School fundraisers create ongoing, reliable income for your clubs and programs with less effort on your part.
The average fundraising program is a one-off project that’s labor-intensive for your school.
You contact the fundraising company
A rep gets in touch to discuss your needs
They set you up with the same program as everyone else
You receive marketing materials and order forms
You go door to door, taking orders and collecting funds
You tally the orders and turn them in to the company
They send a bulk shipment
You sort and deliver the orders
You close out the fundraiser
… and that’s if things go off without a hitch. What if there’s a discrepancy in the funds or a problem with the goods? You also have to handle all that.
Certain fundraisers call for particular skills, knowledge, or experience to get them set up and keep them running. It often requires financial resources for some programs to even get off the ground.
The finite nature of the average fundraising program means that every time you need to raise money, you’ll go through this process all over again. And face it, stirring engagement is hard: Fundraising is often a pain for you, your students, and their parents.
Well, not anymore.
Help Our School can change all that for you
With Help Our School, you can establish a low-maintenance, multi-stream, ongoing fundraiser for your school and sidestep all the hassle that comes with the usual fundraiser model. There’s nothing to buy, count, sort, or track.
Better still, it doesn’t cost your school a dime to get started.
If you’re ready now, it’s as easy as filling out this form. If you want to hear more about how we help you stage a better fundraiser, read on.
The Help Our School fundraising platform runs around the clock, 365 days a year. Perpetual revenue is within reach with this set-it-and-forget-it program.
21st Century fundraising
Help Our School believes that your team of volunteers should be able to focus on the avenues of most significant impact:
Getting the fundraiser out into the community at large
Stirring interest in/gaining traction for the fundraiser
Putting fundraising proceeds toward realizing a goal
So, we implemented specific things to help you hit those success markers. The whole Help Our School team is skilled in doing all the little things that make a fundraiser work from start to finish, and we do them well.
We’re ready to provide your school with the best possible variety of tools, technology, and means of support for fundraising. We’ve got sophisticated automated systems in place to take care of the tedium and keep things running smoothly. Volunteers don’t have to do things like receive and sort bulk shipments, package deliveries, or collect money and issue receipts. (They don’t really want to do those things, but they’re too polite to say so.)
With all those tasks off their plates, the people who help you can put more time toward getting the word out about your fundraising program. Greater awareness equals more money, faster.
And with the Help Our School platform, your program gets the backing of seasoned professionals, volunteers, and philanthropists.
