Process
  1. As a leadership group, research and select 3 worthy causes in your area. Causes should be carefully vetted to find out as much information as possible.
  2. Next, hold a campus-wide vote to determine which non-profit your school will support.
  3. After a group has been selected, dedicate a month towards raising as much money as possible. Each and every club/organization on campus is invited to take part, holding their own unique fundraising events to contribute to the greater good.
  4. Finally, hold a full school rally to hand a final check to the selected organization. This is a great opportunity to show your community what real pride looks like.

Process
  1. Before beginning, it is important to note that this is a fairly large undertaking. While a bit labor-intensive, this is a phenomenal way to show love and compassion so just about everyone at your school.
  2. To get started, have each student and faculty member write their winter wishes on small pieces of paper. Winter wishes are encouraged to be no more than 10 dollars apiece.
  3. Next, students, staff members, clubs, and even community businesses are encouraged to grant as many wishes as possible. As a rule of thumb, you should give yourself at least 6 weeks to collect all granted wishes.
  4. Finally, hold a full-school assembly where wishes are granted. While not every student needs to receive a granted wish, it is a great way to show all that they are loved and appreciated.

Process
  1. Contact a local restaurant to create a fundraising/charity evening.
  2. The evening event is simple—for each patron who mentions your cause or school, the restaurant donates a certain amount of money back your way.
  3. This is mutually beneficial for both your school and the restaurant, as the small bump in business supports everyone.

Process
  1. At a local athletic event or school assembly, explain to students the need to service a local or global cause.
  2. Rather than simply collecting possible donations at the door, set aside a few minutes of time to see how much your audience can raise.
  3. To make things interesting, split your audience in half to see which side can raise the most!
