Fundraising by children

Encourage motivated children to lead some terrific fundraising ideas
Within each primary class there will be motivated children who are more than capable of leading fundraising activities. This can range from a couple of children running a stall at a school fête to small groups organising emergency aid events. All of these ideas support the Every Child Matters outcomes (particularly ‘Achieve Economic Wellbeing’) and from a school’s point of view can contribute towards evidencing ECM objectives.
Equally, it is these days that, with a little effort, can raise a reasonable amount of money and stay with your children as a significant event in their lives.
Setting fundraising team ground rules
As with any aspect of learning, children will need guidance. The level of this will depend on the activity that you have in mind and will require you to unpick the various stages required to complete the activity. If it is running a stall at a fair, then how will the children advertise their stall? What is a fair price range? What responsiblities will children have and how can you ensure that they will know what to do? Who will be responsible for finances?
