Equally as important as fundraising is the concept of “friendraising” – holding an event whose primary purpose is not to generate thousands of dollars in contributions, but instead to create a feeling of camaraderie and community. When the NCPE holds an event to get our families together so we can feel good about our town and our schools, this is a “friendraising event”. If we can all feel as if we are a part of the NCPE, then we can all feel good about donating time, effort and money to the programs and events the NCPE offers.
