FIVE GOOD REASONS FOR A SCHOOL TO HAVE ITS OWN CROWDFUNDING PLATFORM
1. FOR STUDENTS
Fundraisers are important to schools because they help pay for things like extracurricular educational events and activities that the schools are unable to provide. Fundraising for public schools add to the base funding that comes from the government and taxpayers. It’s generally not enough for supplies which teachers have to pay out of their salaries for kids to have in the classroom.
For schools that are in wealthier areas fundraising is for outings that are not within the school budget but are an enrichment for students. In the high school fundraising is generally for student trips to get teams, music groups, drama teams to competitive festival.
Students who participate in school fundraising also benefit intrinsically because they learn essential communication and networking skills, as well as the value of earning. These things will be important once students eventually enter the work-force.
2. FOR ENTERPRISE EDUCATION
Another important benefit of its own funding platform for a School is that it can utilize it in the development of enterprise education. Through more funds generated in its own funding platform, the School can generate more creative ways to teach students about entrepreneurship and self-growth.
3. FOR ALUMNI AND EDUCATION
With the money generated by its own platform, the School can reach out to more and more alumni for more fund generation. It can also organize events and get-togethers to create more camaraderie between the students, School and the alumni and enhance its reach and contacts.
4. FOR DIGITAL TECH
Technology today is the best gift to education. It has created new methods of learning and has increased the understanding of subjects tenfold. With a funding platform of its own, the School can foster its digital technology. It can add new ways of digital learning to its curriculum which will make the study more interactive and interesting. The School can also strengthen its research wing by adding modernized equipment through the funds and also make the entire campus more digitally ahead and connected.
5. SCHOOL SPORTS TEAM
Sports is a very essential part of life at the School. A good sports team is not just a team of best players but a representation of the School at various national and international forums. Make your School team well equipped, well prepared and well trained with the best trainers and facilities. Use the funding platform to nurture your sports and invest in your best athletes.
