The school’s expenses sometimes exceed the money they receive from the education department of the government. This is because the government is reluctant to allocate more money to support new school programs. Yet there is no room for adding fees paid by students by a substantial amount. Fundraising activities are becoming popular in many schools as a means of meeting the extra school expenses. Some of the methods school can use to raise extra funds are.
One of the simplest fundraising ideas is starting products selling program. Such as opening a school canteen to sell snacks to both students and other people nearby the school. Many people are open to this fundraising idea as they see the value for their money immediately. Therefore many people will be willing to promote the school fundraising by buying products being sold by the school. It is common for persons who have in business for a long time to offer to help to student in setting up a successful business venture and guide them on how to maximize profits which are valuable lessons to the students.
Another way of raising funds is an[approaching companies to assist the school financial start the new programs. Companies understand the importance of innovation, therefore, are willing to sponsor new school programs. Such as offering financial support to building of a school library and acquisition of new edition school books. This idea may offer the company an opportunity to grow their marketing plans leading to more sales. One of the core values of many companies is social responsibility; thus schools should be aware that the business is also seeking a strategic partner to help them achieve their core values.
Fund for new school programs can also be raised by starting selling tickets to a game which participants stand to win big prizes. The idea is to create a relatively simple contest which all a persons need to do is buy a ticket and wait to find out if they will be announced as the winner. The advantage of this method is that people even if they do not win they do not feel like they lost money as they the money is being used in a school program that is beneficial to the students.

The use of several methods makes the school stand a better chance of raising the targeted amounts of funds. We have people who will contribute due to the school perseverance in its methods of raising funds; fundraising has never been easier, with the current technology people from all over could contribute.
