Anyone who's ever attended a school PTA meeting knows the struggle of getting the community to rally behind a fundraiser. I mean, just how many bake sales and magazine drives can a school have in one year? As a PTA board member who's bought more than her fair share of wrapping paper and Thanksgiving pies over the years, I can tell you the struggle is real.
That's why this Rockwell, TX, fundraising letter is absolutely perfect. The PTA there is asking parents to donate based on what they wouldn't have done over the coming year, rather than what they will do. We're not sure if it's tongue-in-cheek or not, but we hope it's real, because it's perfectly on point!
(Be sure to read through to the bottom, our favorite is the $100 level — "I really wouldn't have helped anyway, so here's $100 to forget my name.")
