NKY HS Theatre Boosters

Since the arts are usually the first curriculum to be cut from the school budget, it’s refreshing to see a high school with a booster organization funding theatre productions. The organization holds an annual fundraiser to raise money for workshops, production expenses, and a scholarship for a graduating senior.

The theatre organization wanted something unique and different for their fundraiser without incurring high expenses to increase attendance at fundraiser and make more dollars.

Theatre organization wanted something different, a “wow” factor at their fundraiser but didn’t want to spend a lot of money to do it.

  • Problems Vs Solutions

    Researched fundraising ideas that pertained to their mission.
    Developed new fundraising idea procedure.
    Wrote implementation procedure to add an additional money making component to the fundraiser that was easy to execute.
    Trained and utilized the organization’s engaged volunteers in carrying out new ideas.
    Constructed a simple survey to collect data on reaction to new ideas.

A new type and delivery of food at the fundraiser saved the organization $3600; the food served was valued at $15,000. The additional money making component brought in another $250 and did NOT incur extra expenses or volunteers. All 300 guests filled out the survey stating they LOVED the “new food style/delivery” and 89 people stated that the food was part of the reason they attended. The organization used this style again and the second year they even brought in a sushi chef.
