Most school programs cannot thrive financially without outside help. Therefore, physical education administrators need to find ways to bring in money. For this assignment you will create two fund-raising proposals (be creative!!!!). They must be different. One proposal will go to a corporate sponsor (this must look professional – I encourage you to look at CBU Athletics and their fundraising plans). The second proposal will go to the school community. Include the following in each proposal:
- Needs Assessment – Why do you need the money? Did you conduct a survey and find a specific need that is not being met? Explain the specific data you have to show you need the money. Use numbers.
- Significance – How will the money be used to meet the needs? Be as specific as you can. What are the goals that will be met with the money?
- Scope – Explain the fund-raiser. Who will be involved? What will the roles be for each entity? What are the realistic dollar amounts? Are there different levels?
- Stewardship – How will you manage the fund-raiser so everyone benefits? What are some strong fiscal policies or procedures you will use? How is being a good steward with other people’s money reflect Christ-like attributes?
Remember you are presenting two different proposals to two different audiences. Make sure to label each separately – Corporate & Community.
With each proposal you can break away from APA. In other words, you can use color, graphs, photos. When I grade each I will be grading it from the standpoint of “Did you entice me to get involved?”
As always, an APA formatted title page is EXPECTED. If you use references (and retrieve information from other sources) then please make sure you cite it and also include a reference page (in APA format).
All written submissions should reflect professionalism in grammar, spelling, writing style/format (one-inch margins, double spaced, typed in 12-point Times New Roman font), include current APA citations when appropriate, an appropriate title page, and be uploaded as .doc or .docx documents.
