It's well established that students benefit from parent involvement in their education as well as on their school campus. PEER has been cultivating community involvement by supporting virtual direct donation fundraising campaigns and evening family STEAM events. Most recently we hosted "Virtual Family Tech Nights" for schools who were challenged to maintain their family involvement during social distancing.
Parents are busier than ever, but STEAM nights continue to draw families to their children's schools. Tasked to help schools continue to have their scheduled Family Coding/STEAM nights last spring, PEER hosted events via ZOOM. Check out our video of one of the events. If you want more information about how this could work on your campus, contact us for more information.
Direct Donation Fundraising
PEER's approach to fundraising is to implement a focused Direct Donation Campaign in which parents and the community make financial contributions that go directly to schools. This eliminates the need to purchase products (i.e. magazines, gift wrap, food) and provides schools with a much greater percentage of funds raised. The Direct Donation method is a perfect fit during social distancing, enabling families to continue to support schools from home. More information below, and please contact us if you have questions about Direct Donation Fundraising for your school.
