Host a Count-Me-In
Brandeis parents love to schmooze! Gather up your creative ideas for a Count-Me-In party that will be made available to the community via the silent auction to be hosted any time through December 2018. Host an intimate whiskey tasting at your house or a progressive dinner with other neighborhood parents. Plan a scavenger hunt or fun run. The ideas are endless and we are happy to help you brainstorm if interested.
Host a class experience
We’re asking two parents from each grade to work together to host a class experience for their grade to be scheduled any time through December 2018. It can be just a kid party or fun for the entire family. These events are meant to be easy to organize (i.e. movie nights, beach bonfires, ping pong party, bowling, family kickball in the park).
Reach out to your community
Communicate with your company, local businesses, and organizations to inquire if they will sponsor or underwrite the event, or donate an auction item. You can find more information about sponsorship levels here
. If you would like to solicit donation items from a local business, you can find the donation form here
. Or, if you give us the contact information, we’d be happy to send a sponsorship letter or donation form on your behalf.
Parents have the same sponsorship and underwriting opportunities and it’s a wonderful way to show your support of the school. The details and benefits of sponsorship and underwriting can be found here
