If you’re having a fundraising event for your school, consider adding a teacher’s wish list.
Ask each teacher to create a list of items, typically ranging in price from $25 to $50, that they would like for their classroom. If ”big ticket” items such as computers, printers, etc. are needed, split them into multiple requests of $50 to $100 towards the purchase of the item.
Next, create an attractive list for each classroom. The teacher’s name and classroom should be easily visible. Each list should have an area for bidders to place their bid number next to the item they want to make a donation for.
Display all the wish lists in an area which is easily accessible to everyone attending your event.
At the end of the evening, the donations from the teacher’s wish list are added to the bidder’s auction purchases. The money raised is placed in a fund for the purchase of those items “purchased.”
