Friends and Family
Money donated by his uncle's business.
My daughter got financial help from her family members.
My son got donations from friends and family.
My son got funds for this trip from his grandparents and parents. The letters and forms in the packet are what we used to get donations.
The trip was a gift from her grandfather.
Our daughter mailed out letters to family and friends asking for their support. She was able to raise most of the application fee by doing this.
She is a driven child and really wanted to go. She picked up the phone and called everyone in her family. They know how passionate she is and how hard she works and they rewarded her for it!
She raised hers through personal donations from family and friends
We were able to obtain 100% family donations.
We sent a letter to friends and family and ended up raising all of the money needed to go to the Lone Star Leadership Academy.
After my son was nominated we started off by asking family and friends for donations to allow him to attend the camp. We asked local business owners to help sponsor him. We also held a very successful car wash at our local O'Reilly's with the help of some of his track and football team members.
After reading the fundraising information provided on the Education in Action website, Zane and I personalized the funding request letter. Zane talked to one set of her grandparents who offered to match any funds she raised toward her camp cost. Then, Zane and I began to plan how she could raise some money. We started with local businesses.
My son was able to get support from his school, church, and my employer which greatly aided in his chance to attend. It showed him that others have seen the great potential he has within.
She used birthday/Christmas money for one-third, I paid one-third, and her dad paid one-third.
We only sent letters to relatives and friends. We were able to raise a little bit more than half of the cost.
We sent out a letter to family, friends, and a few local companies asking for donations.
She did a fundraiser among family members and friends by giving a presentation on why she wanted to do this and why she stands to benefit by becoming a contributing member of the community.
She did chores for grandparents to raise money.
To help raise money for camp, my daughter wrote letters to family and friends. Now that she is back, we will be inviting those people over for a dinner made by her and she will give a presentation of what she learned.
Our biggest fan and fundraiser was Noah's homeroom teacher. She has a lot of contacts and political influence in the community. She really wanted to help Noah and she was a huge part of his fundraising success.
We used the letter provided on the Education in Action website and we sent it to my boss and some close friends. They reviewed the information and decided to support him in this adventure.
We typed up a letter and presented it to family and friends. We also mailed letters out to local business; one of them donated half of the cost of the camp. We were thrilled!
My son did do a swim-a-thon to raise money for the camp. He asked family members to sponsor him for each lap he was able to swim.
