We encourage all of our KES Clubs to fundraise to help support costs of their programs. Clubs can fundraise either financially or accept in-kind donations such as food and supplies. Schools host many kinds of events to raise funds, collect food donations, or raise awareness within the school community about their KES Club. Here are some ideas your school can host this year:
- School Wide Yard Sale
- Organize teachers vs. Students sports event and charge for admission
- Charge admission at Spring Concerts – proceeds to support KES
- Host Silent Auction Events
- Cram the Van, Stock the Cupboards, Grade level organized items for in-kind food item donations
Rennie’s River in St. John’s recently hosted a Cram the Van event at their school where they were able to fully stock their KES Club Cupboards for months to come!
