A SCHOOL CHALLENGE - ANNUAL FUNDRAISING
Multi-award winning community engagement model nets big for local schools trivia night!
We understand the importance of schools in the area, and the future education of our children! With that in mind, in 2019
CHP RSL held a forum with local schools to better understand the challenges they face with fundraising.
Local school Principles and volunteers from P&C (Parents and Citizens Association), discussed the challenges the schools face.
It was clear that school fundraising was a time consuming, but much needed resource! One of the most consistent pieces of feedback was that P&Cs are time poor, and may not have the skills and/or expertise on how to run an event. A collaboration between CHP RSL who has the model, expertise and resources to manage an event, and the school who has the desire for much needed resources, appeared to be a match made in heaven.
Summer Hill Public School offered to be our pilot school and worked with CHP RSL to transform their school run event into
a fundraising success! The school retained control of all of the event theming, the trivia process, ticket sales and fundraising
items - all items that they could easily administer. CHP RSL provided the room, audio visual sound and lighting, dressing of
the room, food and beverage, and even a stage where a local parents band performed.
Well, all we can say is that they had an 80s BLAST! Not only did the school have their largest trivia night attendance, with
280 parents, they raised an all time record for the school! With ClubGRANTS covering the cost of room hire and audio
visual equipment the majority of funds went straight to the school - exactly where they belong.
