Thank you to those who participated in the HMS Fundraiser Survey. We received 141 responses with the following results:
Direct Donation (no event, no sales) – 52%
Adult Focused Evening Event – 20%
Student Sales and an Adult Evening Event – 12%
Student Sales – 8%
*We also received about 10% in the “other” category which generally gave good ideas and feedback about fundraising in general.
Using this feedback, the Fundraising Committee has decided to host a Family Trivia Night Fundraiser on Friday, February 24, 2017. We are hopeful this fundraiser will meet most everyone’s needs by bringing families and staff out for a fun night while raising money for our PTO. For the many families who indicated they would prefer to donate, we will offer a direct donation option if you are unable or unlikely to attend the Family Trivia Night.
We are early in the planning phases, but we are currently reaching out to local businesses for sponsorships and support. We know many HMS families have their own businesses, so if you have an interest in being a sponsor for this event, please contact Janet Lahr at VPFunding@hmspto.org.
