Library Fundraiser FAQ

Library Read-a-Thon Fundraiser FAQ

Thanks for helping the library by participating in the Read-a-Thon!  This fundraiser is our ONLY source of revunue for supplies and additional book purchases throughout the year.  Anything you can do to help is welcome!  Here is a list of the questions I am asked the most:

Q: How does this work?
A: You will create a page from your student by clicking this link:

      The teacher that you will select is your child’s GAP teacher.  From this page, you can text your contacts links to donate, you can post to your Facebook page or social media to ask for donations, or you can email friends and family to ask for donations.  Instead of running this Read-a-Thon with a per page read donation, we are asking for flat rate donations with the enticement of your student reading during GAP time to get their daily minutes in!  It’s pretty simple!

Q: I don’t want to sell candles.  Can I just write a check or donate money?

A: Absolutely you can!!!  Just make sure you clearly put ‘donation to library’ in memo line of the check and make it out to Good Hope or write it on the outside of the envelope if you are sending cash.

Q: What is the last day that you will take packets and money?
A: The absolute last day is Friday, March 25th.     

Q: So are there any prizes?
A: Yes!  Our top sellers and readers will receive a pizza party, our top participating GAP teacher will receive lunch, and the overall fundraising kiddo will get to be the librarian for a day!
