- Hold a school play or concert:
For your next school performance, you can charge admission and donate the proceeds to the Foundation.

- Have a Grade-a-Thon or Read-a-Thon:
Students collect pledges from friends and relatives based on the number of "A" grades they receive on the next report card, or on the number of books they can read in a month.
- Conduct a Student-Teacher Sporting Event:
Students and teachers can compete against each other at volleyball or basketball, raising funds through admissions and refreshment sales.
