Fundraising offers so much more then raising money. It also teaches responsibility and goal setting, both being huge benefits for students to gain. Fundraising puts the child in a role of being responsible for meeting deadlines, setting goals and creating a plan. Children often gain confidence, improve communication skills, and learn about personal responsibility, which helps with future goal-setting and long-term planning. Fundraisers are also an opportunity for kids to work together toward a group goal while making a positive contribution to their school or organization.
Simple business skills like customer service, organization, time management, professional etiquette and balancing budgets are skills that will carry into potential careers and social settings. Simple skills like smiling, making eye contact, and using clear, confident speech are skills children need to develop for their future. We really think that handling finances is a huge benefit here and it’s a good idea to gain experience at a young age, something that will continually be part of their lives.
