Anyone from everywhere may simply come to enjoy this event, simply because it’s about having fun. School fundraising campaigns and PTOs especially have great success with Color Run Fundraisers.

Use of video is a striking way to express yourself and the specific needs and projects underway at your school. Video increases your opportunity for success in crowdfunding and raising more funds. It offers you a voice to tell your potential donors what you plan to use their fundraising dollars for. It is also a chance to show them what you have already done - the improvements you have made through prior fundraisers.
Readathon and reading fundraisers promote literacy and a love of reading for children, and raise money for schools in keeping their educational standards high. Cultivating the love of books is encouraged by involving children and communities in reading based fundraising. Weather the readathon or reading fundraiser evolves around reading to children in hospitals or simply at the student’s leisure, the common element involves fundraising for a cause through reading.
Libraries are an important part of communities for creating a haven of education, inspiration and opening our eyes to a world through books and publications. A critical component to the success of libraries everywhere are groups called Friends of the Library.
These amazing groups of people are quite literally the greatest friends of the library in their community. Members of Friends of the Library groups usually consist of enthusiastic and energetic people who believe that libraries are a social and intellectual center of communities. These groups are comprised of people that use the library, and the services within it, individuals that raise both funds and awareness for the library and people that help provide governance and leadership for the library or library system.
