Parent and Community Fundraising

Parent and Community Fundraising

Our aims

At Richmond West, fundraising involves the whole school community through events such as a walk-a-thon, raffles, the Art Show and the School Concert. The school community comes together to celebrate student achievements, raise money for the school and enjoy socialising with members of our community.

Strategic fundraising

We fundraise to purchase items that have been identified by the school and which support the educational and social development of students. The fundraising wish list is prepared in consultation with the school, subcommitees of School Council and as needs arise within the building and the school’s many programs.

The whole school community

Fundraising is an activity where we believe that everybody has something to contribute. All families are encouraged to be a part of their child’s experience at school, and this contribution is welcomed in many forms. You can support our school by donating your time, expertise in a particular area or via a financial contribution.

Our school’s values

Our fundraising approach reflects the values at the heart of our school activities. The school’s core values are care and compassion, respect, doing your best, responsibility, co-operation and honesty and trustworthiness. We uphold these values through thoughtful planning of fundraising events, being inclusive and making links to the broader community.
