Giving Tree Student Campaigns – Parent Info

NFSSE students and families are crowdfunding to raise $100,000 during the Annual Giving Tree Fund Campaign!  All students who participate are entered into drawings for awesome prizes… and top fundraisers could even win $1000 off tuition! Check out a list of prizes below, or better yet, watch the Youtube video as Dawn and Jon Dixon and the NFSSE rock stars show you how to get started and what you can win.

Supporting NFSSE is simple as…

 1. Create and Share a Crowdfunding Campaign with Family and Friends

Create a crowdfunding page for your student and share it with your family and friends via social media, email, and text! When you open the crowdfunding homepage, scroll down to the “I Want to Fundraise for This” button.

Start Crowdfunding

2. Give or Pledge to the Annual Giving Tree Fund

Make a personal gift now OR pledge and give in installments throughout the year using your Giving Tree envelope or online through your student crowdfunding page or at NFSSE Donate Now. (Be sure to write your student’s name in the “In Honor of” field.

We will culminate the campaign with prize giveaways and a big celebration on Saturday, November 6th –  the new Giving Tree Family Festival with carnival games, inflatables, Pie or Peck, prizes, music, art, and more!
