(Sponsored Post) At this point in the school year, PTA groups often experience turnover with members moving on and new members coming on board. It’s a time of transition that does not always go as smoothly as planned. The last thing PTA groups want is their support of the school to pause as a result of such transition. After all, the reason we get involved in PTA is to give back to the kids.
Whether or not your PTA group is in a time of transition, it can be difficult maintain your fundraising efforts from year to year to continually support new curriculum and programs.
One program that has found a way to help schools maintain their fundraising needs year after year is the Schwan’s Cares™ fundraising program. The Schwan’s Cares program is an online fundraising program in which a group can easily share their campaign with PTA supporters and easily shop for groceries from Schwan’s Home Service, Inc for delicious foods they are likely already buying. The digital element of this program allows for an easy transition amongst school groups to maintain a certain level of funding each year.
A Wisconsin school recognizes Schwan’s Cares as a solution to fundraising, “As a middle school teacher, time is of the essence and the focus of middle school students is typically not on fundraising, which means that Schwan’s Cares fundraising is the perfect solution for our district.”
As the school year winds down, the focus of students and teachers is on finishing the school year strong and preparing for the next school year ahead. However, we all know that funding is still needed at all points of the year to support programs.
“The Schwan’s Cares program is easy to set up and navigate for busy people. Students are able to create their own personal accounts linked with mine. They then have the opportunity to ask friends and family from all over the U.S. to support them. The students love to see how much money they have earned each day as the sales are tracked. Parents are excited that they do not need to pick-up or deliver orders for this fundraiser. Schwan’s takes care of it all!” –Wisconsin Middle School
Whether you need to raise funds for the remainder of the school year or would like to get a jump start on next year, the ease of the Schwan’s Cares fundraising program could help provide a needed solution for your school.
