Ways to Raise Funds for Richard’s School Assemblies

Share Richard with other schools in the area – By booking several assemblies over the span of a day or even days, Richard is able to substantially drop his fees for your school and the other schools(s) booking him.  Everyone wins this way.

Use Richard to Promote Themes – Black History Month, MLK Week, Women’s History Month, Career Day, Catholic Schools Week, red Ribbon Week.  Federal grant monies could be available depending on your theme. Check with your school district to see who dispenses funds for your state.  You might also try contacting the federal government office.  Request applications.

Contact the PTA/PTO/PTSA and others – If you are planning an event that supports their statement or objectives (promote education, safe and drug free communities, etc) they are more likely to contribute.

Apply for grants monies – Contact your State Department of Education and the State Department of Human Services.  They can help guide you to the right office.  You might also try your county offices to see if they are already in possession of grant monies for programs promoting youth mentoring, sobriety from drug & alcohol abuse and many others.

See if school administration has funding – Check out funds set aside for teacher in-service, Title VI funding, staff development, etc.

Contact local businesses and organizations – Especially businesses that are related to children, teens and families.  Contact the CEO or owner or even try the community services department to see if they are willing to help sponsor the event.    In return, offer to list them as a sponsor on all promotional materials and radio or TV ads.

Ask clubs on campus and off campus to help fund the event – Invite group participation by campus clubs and organizations in funding the event or reach out to the Optimist, Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, and Elks Club.  Another possibility is the Chamber of Commerce.
