Independence Academy approached us to try a new fundraising idea: hoodies! Their students are able to purchase zippered hoodies as part of their uniform. However they are not allowed to wear any non-approved pull over hoodies. This created a fundraising opportunity for the PTA. By creating a school approved pull over hoodie, the school and PTA was able to raise thousands of dollars for their projects and field trips. Compared to other fundraisers that offer a small percentage back to the school for overpriced popcorn tins or candles, an apparel fundraiser has much larger returns for schools and better value for students and parents.
