Welcome to 2018 and the start of a new fundraising year! With demands on cash raised by PTAs at peak level, how will your volunteers raise funds this year? Will you stick to tried and tested popular events, or do you fancy branching out and trying something different? We’ve been asking PTAs about their plans for 2018, maybe their ideas will inspire you to make this year a record-breaking one!
This PTA have lots of plans for the spring term already:
Quiz night, movie night, coffee mornings and cake sales!— FOGillepsie (@FOGillespie) January 4, 2018
This is a fantastic way to kick off 2018 – a silent auction with a very cool prize!
We have an exciting silent auction for a signed first team Man United football that will start on Friday. Watch this space for more information and ways to bid, also why don’t you join our Facebook group for updates on future events.— Blackrod PTFA (@BlackrodPTFA) January 3, 2018
Perhaps something to look forward to after Dry January?!
Happy New Year to everyone from all of us at the ESA. We are busy organising our first event of 2018, a wonderful evening of wine tasting, on Fri 2 Feb. 🍷— ESA (@ESchoolAssoc) January 3, 2018
Flyers will be coming home next week. Book early to avoid disappointment.
What better way to cheer up a winter’s evening and raise some cash than this?
There’s nothing like a quiz to bring out the competitive teachers and parents! 😉
And it sounds like this PTA are cooking up some exciting plans for the year ahead!
We love a good Bingo session – especially one with a twist!
This sounds like a great Spring term fundraiser:
