HYPE puts on fundraisers, not to raise money for CYT, but to raise money for their own goals and purposes.
What are those goals?
- To put on events (to pay for things such as the venue, decorations, prizes, etc.)
- To attend the CYT Expo
- To donate to causes of its choice.
Teaching budgeting and fundraising to high school students will also give them lifelong skills handling money which will be useful for just about any job they might acquire.
Some of the typical HYPE fundraisers include having a bake sale at auditions, doing a raffle basket during one of the show performances, charging admission to a social event, and selling doughnuts or pizza at rehearsals. There can be anywhere from one to four fundraisers per session, depending on how each HYPE group structures them.
