#PackYourBag: 4 Ideas for Sharing Your Story on Social Media

This is the fourth chapter in the #PackYourBag series. With the six items in our “backpack,” we’re giving you tools to help fund your classroom. 

In the fourth chapter of our #PackYourBag series, we’re using Art Supplies to talk about getting creative with Social Media. Check out our Teacher Fundraising 101 guide for more. In the meantime, check out our four examples of Facebook posts that might work for you:

1. Using a Deadline to Create Urgency

Sharing a photo of your kids in action, while telling potential donors about the NEXT cool project you need funded, could help you to reach your goal on schedule.

2. The “Thermometer” 

Knowing just how far you are from your goal could help motivate the unsure donor to give. And some adorable artwork never hurts.

3. Say Thank You

Knowing the difference someone else made in your classroom might show a new donor the importance of supporting your students.

4. Share the Teary Moments

Chances are, if something made you feel all warm and fuzzy, it might do the same for a potential donor.
