Fan-O-Grams: A Fundraiser That Raises Much More Than Money
If you are looking for a way to boost your funds, boost morale and boost your department throughout the school... look no further than Fan-o-grams!
Imagine this... Your budget has just been increased! Not only do you have ample money to fund your season and your classes, you have enough to pay your seamstress, your accompanist and your choreographer. There is even enough in your departmental account for you to reimburse yourself for the four pizzas, two rolls of duct tape, gallon of black paint and box of screws you bought for the set crew last week! Unbelievable! What a wonderful moment!
On show night, plan on selling Fan-o-grams for 45 minutes before your show. We set up two large tables. One is staffed by two or three people selling the actual Fan-o-grams. The other is loaded with markers and pens for people to decorate and write messages on their Fan-o-grams. As people complete their Fan-o-grams, here’s what we do:
The monetary benefits of Fan-o-Grams were immediate and obvious, but we gained much more than extra cash from this fundraiser. We unexpectedly raised spirits, support and awareness for our program. In addition, by having students run this project, we built on student responsibility, organizational skills and ownership. In other words, we hit an educational jackpot!
