9781450412810: Healthy and Sustainable Fundraising Activities: Mobilizing Your Community Toward Social Responsibility

For most schools and organizations, fundraisers bridge the gap between budgets and the money they need in order to operate. Despite the continued rise in childhood and adult obesity and increased attention to humankind’s ecological impact, many fundraisers still rely on the sale of high-calorie, low-nutrient foods or ask supporters to become consumers of incidental items and paper products “to support the cause.”

Healthy and Sustainable Fundraising Activities offers innovative and thoughtful options that raise money for your cause without contradicting the physical activity, health, and ecological messages emphasized in your school or organization. In contrast to traditional fundraisers involving food and incidental products, the ideas in Healthy and Sustainable Fundraising Activities encourage personal, community, and environmental health and reinforce the health and social responsibility initiatives in place in your school or organization. With Healthy and Sustainable Fundraising Activities you’ll learn how to involve not just your school or organization but the entire community in health-promoting, environmentally friendly activities.

With Healthy and Sustainable Fundraising Activities, you’ll find a range of ideas—from ink cartridge recycling to a dance competition—and a unique approach to fundraising sure to energize your students, members, and community to meet and exceed your fundraising goals. For educators, each of the activities outlined in the text is based on National Health Education Standards (NHES) and National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) standards and 21st-century learning outcomes, making this text a great resource for incorporating the health and wellness initiatives of your school into the fundraising plans for your class, club, sport team, or organization.

Activities in the book are grouped according to the level of knowledge, skills, and abilities required for organizing and conducting them. Most activities use similar or commonly used resources often available in a school or organizational setting. You’ll find clear and complete explanations in a standard lesson plan format along with the tools and information you need in order to implement each idea. With background information on various types of fundraisers, how these types are categorized, and guidance on scheduling, implementing, and communication, you’ll have a full picture of what it takes to complete each event.

Get your members and community involved in a project that not only raises money but also gives children exposure to important values such as lifelong wellness, hard work, perseverance, integrity, and civic engagement. Regardless of whether you are new to fundraising or simply searching for new ideas for your next project, Healthy and Sustainable Fundraising Activities offers the tools, information, and inspiration to help you reach your monetary goals in ways that contribute to the health and well-being of your students, members, community, and the environment.
