How To Do FUNDRAISING For Elementary Art Education
Another successful way to raise funding for the program is to ask parents for a small donation. A donation of $1-5 per student can easily be enough to fund the program as well as art supplies. Download a copy of a letter you can use.
Here is a sample:
Parents of “your school” Elementary Students, May 2, 2011
Hello parents! We have the opportunity to purchase and implement a new art curriculum for the students of “your school”. We have had our current program and curriculum for many years, and are ready for a change.
The program we would like to purchase is the Great Artist Program. It is a volunteer-based program that delivers quality art education that’s so simple, and effective, it’s a masterpiece! The Great Artist Program uses simple and proven methods to teach students the foundations of drawing, painting, and composition. The eyes of your student will light up and their confidence will soar when they discover they are truly capable of creating great art. Other programs use craft projects in place of teaching art. Such programs don’t deliver the real skills and real success of the Great Artist Program.
We would like to purchase the first 6 artists lesson plans for next year. These plans include a brief artist history, art appreciation discussions, objective, and vocabulary in a one-page lesson plan with simple step-by-step instructions to complete a student masterpiece.
We have all the art materials needed for the program and only need to purchase the new curriculum for next school year. This program’s cost is $3 per student for the whole year! Please make a contribution today for your student/s and help us give our school and students the tremendous benefits of artistic expression and education.
Thank you for your donations. We look forward to a wonderful year of art and creativity from our students at “your school”.
