Fundraising is a really important job within the Little Oaks committee because we are a non-profit organisation it means that anything that we would like to benefit the group we have to fundraise for. We do 2 big fundraisers a year (the Christmas raffle and May fayre) however sometimes we do more and this is up to the fundraiser to organise with help from the rest of the committee. In previous years we have fundraised for, Astro turf, the sensory garden and mud kitchen, spray painting the shed and small things like buying plants and toys.

The role of the fundraiser:

  • plan, implement and manage all fundraising events held by the pre school.
  • To identify new fundraising ideas.
  • Attend committee meetings and keep the committee up to date with any fundraising ideas and events.
  • Prepare any fundraising documents (posters, letters and applications).
  • Recruit volunteers to help with fundraising activities.
  • keep up to date with any data protection, health and safety, charity benefits law and any other relevant law and legislation.

This is a great role if you are a social person and like to chat with the other parents and company’s however it is a lot of commitment and takes a lot of your spare time. It is important to be able to plan prioritise and meet deadlines. This is a really rewarding part of the committee as you can physically see the money that you have raised for each  event that you organise.
