Set your school fundraising goal
Create a compelling ‘why’ message
Create a compelling and motivating ‘why’ message for your fundraising campaign. If it’s clear what your school is fundraising for and what the funds are going towards, donors are more likely to support your fundraiser.
Find sponsors for your school fundraiser
Contact businesses in your local community and ask if they would be in a position to sponsor or donate to your school or club for your fundraising campaign. These could be contributions in a monetary form, products or services, vouchers, or volunteers – the options are endless. In return for their contribution, you can promote their business on your school fundraising website, newsletter, school notification app, and anywhere else relevant.

Evaluate and review your NZ school fundraiser
A post-campaign analysis is a great way to measure and evaluate the success of your fundraising efforts and activities. Internal reviews of those directly involved with running the campaign are crucial to note what worked and what could have been more effective. External reviews are also important to the contribution of the post-campaign analysis. It could be from the student’s perspective, the donor, or the purchaser’s views on the campaign, and if there was any feedback to improve for the next campaign.
