Why is Oaks moving to a different method of fundraisers?
Traditional fundraisers (candle, candy, etc...) only yield a 40% return and can take away valuable classroom instructional time. All donations through the Fund our Future will be given to Oaks. All donors receive tax benefits for monetary gifts made to the Humble ISD Education Foundation.Did you Know?
- Last year, we raised approximately $17,000 with Yankee Candle fundraiser but only received $7,000 back (only 40%).
- Fund our Future allows for 100% to be given back to the Oaks.
- Parent surveys in Fall 2014 indicated that parents would prefer to donate money versus doing a sales-based fundraiser.
