Focus on Fundraisers That Are Important to You
It's not uncommon to receive multiple fundraiser requests simultaneously – from cookie dough sales to walk-a-thons. Instead of feeling an obligation to participate in each fundraiser, focus on the campaigns you value most. Speak with representatives from your child's school, too, to get a list of projected fundraisers for the year, and hold out for the ones that matter most to you personally. Speak with your kids about what's important to them, as well, and let them know that you plan to participate in fundraisers selectively.
