School Fundraising and Educational Programs

School involvement will create a large portion of our fundraising dollars yearly, September through to June.  We will be asking schools involved with our education program to develop a fundraising campaign within their school.  Specific fundraisers will be at the discretion of individual schools; however we will support their efforts with guest speakers, promotional material, and other relevant requirements.
