We are living through difficult times, and in the midst of all this, we’ve forgotten how important it is for children to have formal access to learning.
Now that the new term has begun, it’s time to start thinking about your fundraising initiatives for the remainder of the year. We know that donations from the community is important for ensuring that students can receive quality education and ongoing additional support.
Online Fundraising for Schools
With so many parents, guardians and community members self-isolating, we understand that it can be challenging to set up and run fundraising events of any nature for your school. That’s why we would like to encourage you to make the most of our online fundraising app.
The Oktion app is a complete silent auction platform that enables you to raise funds through online bids, raffle draws and donations. Sign up your school today and start running your online fundraising event.
Oktion has been designed to help schools like yours to inspire parents and the community to take action and help you raise funds – when needed.
To start raising donations, create a new fundraising event in the Oktion app (hyperlink to website). Promote your fundraiser to parents and the community through school newsletters, community noticeboards and the local paper. Encourage guests to donate money or items for bidding or raffles. Your fundraiser can run for one weekend, a few weeks or several months – it’s up to you.
Oktion also allows you to hold a dedicated raffle fundraiser alongside your event. Raffles are a great way to get the community involved as it generates excitement. Even if your raffle ticket price is small, community members will feel like they are making a difference by purchasing one. Even if participants don’t have children enrolled in your school, this can help them feel connected to your school and establish a base of support to your school’s success.
Start using the Oktion app and improve the way you run auctions, raise funds and spread awareness.
