Learning by Giving

“Hi there! We’re part of the Middle School Fundraising Team, or you can call us the MiSFT’s! In case you didn’t know, we’re a group of independent guys and gals at EMS, here to raise money and learn by doing!

Our mission is to display our academic learning through the culminating activities of planning, preparing, and executing a fundraiser. The process and tasks involved help us practice and apply different things:

  • Math concepts (budgeting, statement of accounting, profit & loss, recipe calculations)
  • Language (collaboration, media literacy, marketing, communication)
  • Art
  • Teamwork
  • Critical thinking and responsibility

Our goal is to raise funds which students work with to balance a bank account throughout the course of the school year. At the start of each individual fundraiser, we clearly outline our goal and use of funds. At the end of the school year, the funds are portioned out as set out in our campaign statements.”
