5. Run a target campaign

One successful school recently ran a thermometer campaign.
They created the fundraising thermometer and placed it for all to see by the school gate. Parents were aware that once the target of £1000 had been reached then the school would be able to purchase new indoor and outdoor sports equipment.

Parents who regularly shop through TheGivingMachine were also publicly thanked by way of their names being attached to the fundraising thermometer.
