Fundraising resources

Fundraising is defined as “raising money for a cause.” Speech and Debate Teams will need to learn the art of fundraising, because:

  • BEST cannot cover all expenses for everyone
  • Fundraising and being able to get others excited about your idea or cause is an important life skill
  • It is a way of instilling leadership and the spirit of social giving in students.
