There is a new method of school fundraising that has come to the Comox Valley, which has the potential to raise amazing amounts of money for schools but requires hardly any volunteer time from parents.
Wealthy School Revolution (WSR) enables parents to buy non-perishable grocery items online, contributing up to 20 per cent of the grocery order’s value as profit for the school. The groceries are then delivered to the school every two weeks.
Wealthy School Revolution is creating quite a buzz in the Lower Mainland where it originated.
“People are excited because it’s such a win-win opportunity,” says Darryl Davis, CEO and co-developer with his wife Sarah Davis. “Once we have a chance to tell a parent or a PAC chair about our program, they want to get started right away. In fact, most parents wonder why it’s never been done before.”
Debbie Bowman is an independent developer for Wealthy School Revolution and the first to represent WSR on Vancouver Island. “The Wealthy School Revolution model of fundraising is exceptional because unlike most items sold to raise funds, groceries are something parents already buy — and on a regular basis,” says Bowman.
If parents want more information on the Wealthy School Revolution’s model of fundraising for their school or pre-school, Bowman can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-400-2632.
