Graphic Communications Fund Raiser

 

NOTE: As of 2016-17, there is NO FUNDRAISER. Due in part to complications with BISD financial requirements, it is almost impossibly time consuming on the teachers part to try to help the students raise a little money. Many years ago, fund raiser were effective because chocolate bars could be sold at school. Students raised lots of money, lots of equipment was purchased, field trips were paid for, etc. It took a lot of my time to conduct, but it was a real win, win for the student, and I didn't mind doing the extra work. But then, chocolate then all food items, were eliminated, resulting in our need to sell discount cards with a dramatic increase paperwork to do just a simple fundraiser. At the same time, the amount of darkroom has decreased to the point that very few fundraising dollars are actually needed, as the the printing requirement for the class shifted to the commercial end that the student must take care of and a fund raiser would not be able to help. Thus the end of over over 30 years of fund raising activities.

Hopefully it will be a rewarding experience for you and you will profit from the time you invest. I do realize it is an investment in time...and you are truly appreciated.

1. Discount Cards


Beginning usually in the 3rd week of school, the Communication Graphics department will start it's sale. The monies earned will be used to generate coupons for your personal supplies, as well as to fund field trips in the fall.

While the sale does benefit the entire class, it is designed to benefit you individually the most, with the incentives below. While you are not required to sell, you are most certainly encouraged to sell as a student who exhibits excellent citizenship (conduct) would be participating in this sale. Please keep in mind that if you choose not to participate, you will be responsible for all of your supply costs.

The ending date will be the end of the 2nd week of the sale.

If you participate:
- You will complete an Order Form for Discount Cards.
- Collect $10 for each card sold during the course of the sale to start earning supply coupons.
- At the end of the sale, turn in your completed Order Form and all money by the deadline specified. Please cover the cost of the remaining items, and then take the remaining items home to sell. If you fail to do so, you will have a debt card issued, and you will forfeit any prizes.
- If you are actively selling, you may continue to sell past the 2nd Friday. Active is defined as having sold at least 1 item. If you have NOT sold 1 item, please plan to turn in your Lab Fee by the end of the sale. 
- In any case, your account should be paid in full by the Wednesday after the end of the sale.

 

You are responsible for the money until you turn it into me.


You can sell the on campus, but do NOT get into trouble (i.e. be tardy to class, sell during a class, etc.). Do ask your teachers if you can announce to the class if you can advertise.

Note: Each card will have a blank for the value of the card is based on the hours or # of times for a specific event. So, you might agree to wash the car 2 times for the $25. For every $25 a person spends, they will get a raffle ticket to be entered in for cash prizes. Also, some of the above like Portraits or Posters can be turned in for class assignments also.

 

People who may be interested in your services, or at least helping you:

·        Parents

·        Grand parents.

·        Older brothers and sisters

·        Friends – like for senior portraits.

·        Church leaders or members – work for the church or for the members at their houses.

 

Note: People generally will support your efforts if they know if it is going for a good cause. Take for example a walk-a-thon. If people will pay a lot of good money for you to walk around a track, they will pay you good money to mow the yard when it is also for a fund raiser.

 

Prizes: For each $20 you raise, you will receive a $5 Photo supply coupon. So, basically, you are working for minimum wage…and turn the profits over to the Photography Dept.

 

But you also get other bonus, such as top sales (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and two HMs). PLUS, for every $25 you raise, your name will go into a drawing for cash card prizes to local stores of your choice.
