We focus our efforts on 1 event instead of many small events to avoid fundraiser fatigue. Our main fundraiser is the Jog-A-Thon. We have raised around $25,000 each year which is the bulk of our $35,000-$45,000 annual budget.
We also continue to collect BoxTops and have several Holt Nights Out at local restaurants. All these things help to raise money for our school!
