Step #1 ~ CELEBRATE!
After you've finished your fundraiser and the donation period is complete, it's time to calculate how much you've earned & celebrate your hard work!
Make sure to share this good news with your students, staff/faculty, parents, sponsors, and everyone who made a donation. This will not only allow others to share in your fundraising success but it will also build trust in your Parent Group & gain support for next year's fundraiser! Make sure to remind everyone where the funds will be allocated (if you're teamed up with us, we have a great pie chart graphic you can use/share!).
- Call/email local sponsors
- Publish your success on your PTO/PTA website and on social media
- Send out a newsletter to parents
- Press release in the local paper
- Email to faculty & staff
- Student announcement
This is also the time to deliver on any student incentives like a pancake party, extra recess, turning the principal into a human sundae, etc.
Step #2 ~ GRATITUDE
Fundraising success is a team effort, which is why it's important to thank those who were involved in helping you reach your fundraising goals. Make sure to especially thank any local sponsors for their donations. You want to be sure they will support you next year by showing your gratitude & expressing what their support has done for the school & community.
Also, make sure to follow through on any sponsorship incentives you have in place - this can be for students, faculty, staff, parents, etc.
Step #3 ~ REBOOK for Next Year/Season
It might seem crazy to think about next year's fundraiser, but trust us when we say this is one of the best things you can do after your current fundraiser has ended! This way you can already be promoting for next year, plan ahead with local sponsors, & if you book again with TGMC, we typically offer awesome incentives (be on the lookout for our Early Bird Reward!).
If you are a current client and would like to book again for next year/season please contact your personal event coach or shoot us an email to let us know!
