Quick Tip: Saying No to Buying Fundraising Items

How to Politely Say No to Buying Christmas Fund Raising Items

When neighbors and coworkers ask you to buy items like gift wrap, candy, etc., for school fundraisers, and you just don’t feel it’s financially sound for you to give, try saying something like this:

“Janice, you know I’m always happy to contribute to Austin ‘s school fundraisers. With money being tight right now, I’ve had to make the difficult decision to limit my purchasing and giving this year. As a friend, I’m sure you understand.”

Blessings,
