This year, we decided to do something a little different for our annual fundraiser...something that will build character and encourage students to serve our community, while also raising funds for our school. We can’t wait to see the positive effect your participation in this fundraiser will have on our school and in our community.  

How it works: Students register through the Raise Craze website by clicking on the register now button below. They will select at least three Acts of Kindness to organize or participate in. They’ll enter the email addresses of friends and family for donations; once entered, the Raise Craze platform will handle all communications so students can focus on serving the community.

Timing: The Do Good a-thon will kick off  on October 5th and run until October 19th.

Goal: Our goal for the 2017/2018 school year is two-fold:

1) Raise $35,000 (roughly $100 per student) primarily to supply the new Innovation Lab with added technology. 
2) Promote a culture of kindness and service among our student community.

+ Do kids do Acts of Kindness for donors or in exchange for donations?

No, kids select and pledge to do Acts of Kindness as a way to 'pay it forward' to potential donors. They are not determined by donors or in exchange for donations. The Acts of Kindness are selected by the student based on their interests.

+ How many emails do you send to each supporter that I enter?

We will send up to three personalized emails. The first one will inform supporters of your fundraiser and will go out the minute you press "send email". The second will go out halfway through, reminding them to donate. The final will go out towards the end of your fundraiser as a "last chance to give". Every supporter who donates will also receive a "thank you" email. Each supporter has the option to unsubscribe, in which case they will not receive any additional emails.
