Ep 33 | Thinking Outside the Box with NonProfit Fundraising
Non-profit fundraising can be difficult. But coming up with a unique idea can really help excite your existing audience and bring in new ones. Waldorf School of Bend came up with a great concept so we're talking about how it came to be.
We love supporting non-profits and were thrilled to be a part of the Waldorf School of Bend's new fundraising initiative.
There was a bit of technical issues with sound – but we didn't want to cut all those parts out so we thank you in advance for your flexibility!
Forest For Good is a fundraiser for the Waldorf School of Bend.
This program allows you to purchase a tree for $10 with the goal of purchasing 10,000 trees! Then in early May, the entire school will go out and plant trees where the Milli fire came through in partnership with the Forest Service.
