How can we afford to bring David’s Legacy Foundation to our school or organization?
When you hire a speaker, you are making an investment in your students or in your organization. Here are some creative ways you can make this work with your budget:
- Work Together– Team up with two or three other local schools and schedule multiple presentations on the same day. This only applies to travel presentations.
- Secure a Sponsor– Local businesses or organizations are often seeking opportunities to give back. Businesses find that underwriting an event like this is a great opportunity to build relationships with the community and grow their network. Offer to show their logo at the event to promote their sponsorship through social media or introduce them before or after the presentation. A great place to start is with the local Chambers of Commerce or Business Journal “Book of Lists” in your area.
- Reach out to your PTA/PTO– Campus PTA/PTO groups are a great resource. It is possible they have funding available for this type of event, and if not, they are happy to connect you with resources or sponsors who may be able to help.
- Campus Funds– Campuses typically have money allocated for student and staff development. Check with school administration and find out what funding may be available for this type of event. (Ex. In some areas Title I funds can be used.)
- District Foundation– Check in with them to see what funding opportunities are available. (ex. Grants, scholarships, etc.)
- Start a Fundraising Drive– Many school clubs/organizations can join together with local businesses to have a fundraising night where the business “gives back” a percentage of sales that day/evening.
- Call your City Council– Many city council men/women have access to funding for school enrichment presentations and events.
What is the expectation of a school or organization after the presentation?
The David’s Legacy Foundation presentation is a great step in educating students, parents, and educators on cyber and other forms of bullying.
Upon completion of a DLF presentation all participants at the school or organization are asked to complete a short survey – providing feedback on the DLF presentation. The surveys will be mailed back to David’s Legacy Foundation within two weeks after the date of the presentation.
Schools are encouraged to follow up the conversation with their students and continue educating on bullying and cyberbullying.
Schools are also encouraged to start a kindness campaign to help students keep conversation going.
