The Fall Fundraising Carnival Video Transcript
Your Parent Teacher Group’s fall carnival is the biggest event and fundraiser of the season! With entertainment, food, and games, the whole community will be filled with excitement and buzz. Let’s take a look at some of the fun fall activities your organization set up this year!
Before anyone gets in they’ll have to buy carnival tickets at the front gate. Jake, a young volunteer, is manning the ticket booth as all the happy parents and kids enter. But wait, what’s this? Jake is pocketing some of the ticket money. Turns out he is saving up for a new bike and assumed a few missing dollars wouldn’t hurt anyone. AIM understands that every penny is important to your Group’s success.
After people enter, there are a variety of activities to choose from. The Gomez family heads straight to the pumpkin patch for a few fall-themed pictures to send to Grandma. As Papa is taking pictures he slips on a pumpkin! Ouch. He may have to get an x-ray on his ankle later. It looks like Papa Gomez will have to sit down for the remainder of the event. After the pumpkin patch, the Gomez kids rush from game to game, Cassie Gomez joins the football toss. She aims for the hoops but throws it just a little too far. Heads up! This football heads straight to the cotton candy machine, knocking it over. No more cotton candy for this event.
Over at the inflatable obstacle course, someone is causing quite the scene. It turns out to be your current Parent Teacher Group member, Sandy. It is not uncommon for Sandy to cause an uproar, but today you had security on sight, just in case there was a problem at the carnival. To keep her from causing any more of a disturbance, security politely escorts her off the carnival grounds. As she leaves you hear her mumble about suing for violation of civil rights. We may hear from Sandy again very soon.
Over at the auctions, parents and teachers alike are eagerly gathered to see who won which prizes. The math teacher, Mrs. Ajaz, has just won a brand-new grill! What she doesn’t know is that while she is picturing all the tasty foods she wants to make, someone will be in the midst of stealing it. Your Group has already promised her the prize and worry they may have to dip into other funds to replace the stolen item.
Uh-oh, there’s a commotion at the pony rides. Let’s go see what happened. Many families have been enjoying the pony rides today. But it looks like little Benny has fallen off! His sprained wrist will require immediate attention. Although he’s hoping for a cast all his friends can sign, his parents are none too happy about the situation.
As the night goes on there are still a lot of people at the carnival. This is wonderful news. Unless you are the surrounding neighbors. Turns out some people aren’t enjoying the fun. They have called and made a complaint to the city. The neighbors say the noise and traffic are a nuisance. The police come by and ask if you have a noise permit. As organized as you were, something must have gotten mixed up because you don’t have it. They mention that this could get you in trouble with the city.
After the event is over, parents get together to discuss the funds raised. But wait! these numbers aren’t adding up. Everyone turns to trusted Treasurer Mitch for answers. Unfortunately, Mitch’s family was having a hard time paying rent lately. He took a little money each month; it soon added up to over $1,500.
For incidents like this and many more, AIM Insurance is here to protect you! When you obtain insurance through AIM, you can rest assured that you are protected from potentially catastrophic financial losses that can result from claims related to the various events organized by your parent teacher group.
AIM Policies for Your Parent Teacher Group Fall Fundraising
Your Fall Parent Teacher fundraisers may need multiple types of insurance coverage. AIM offers custom coverage policies to protect parent teacher groups and make sure your fundraising dollars can go straight to improving your school and its programs. Read on to see how we can help protect your PTA, PTO, or booster club, and its funds.
Embezzlement Coverage for Parent Teacher Fall Fundraising
Embezzlement coverage protects your parent teacher group’s funds from theft. Your funds could be embezzled on the front end for example, by a volunteer skimming cash from ticket or concession sales. Or the funds could be embezzled on the back end by any PTA, PTO, or booster club officer/member/volunteer with access to the group’s funds. Potential ways of back end embezzlement include use of the group’s charge card, petty cash, or checking account.
An embezzlement policy with AIM protects your parent teacher group’s funds for improving your students’ scholastic experience.
Liability Coverage for Parent Teacher Fall Fundraising
This is the most common event coverage AIM offers to parent teacher groups. Liability coverage protects your PTA, PTO, or booster club events from lawsuits if someone was injured at one of your organization’s activities and held you responsible. While falls, sprains, and broken bones are the most common offenders, liability coverage also protects your group against occurrences like food poisoning or allergic reactions.
AIM offers liability coverage as an annual policy and single event insurance to best serve the needs of your parent teacher group.
Property Coverage for Parent Teacher Fundraising
People and money are not the only things you may need to insure for your Fall fundraising event. It’s likely your event will include group property and merchandise possessed by your PTA, PTO, or booster club. Business property coverage protects your organization’s items, like popcorn makers, from damage, theft, and vandalism.
Beyond your group’s property, this coverage also extends to raffle merchandise, auction items, fundraising supplies and more that is in your parent group’s possession. This can be extremely helpful if you have expensive items or prizes that can be a target for theft.
Director & Officer Liability for Parent Teacher Fall Fundraising
Director and officer liability coverage protects your PTA, PTO, or booster club officers if they are accused of wrongful acts. This can cover simple items like, failing to abide by the group’s by-laws. The coverage can also protect your parent teacher group from more serious, “wrongful acts” liability.
AIM’s director and officer liability coverage includes protection against perceived acts of discrimination, misrepresentation, inappropriate actions, dissemination of false information, and more. With the coverage your group can protect your directors and officers accused of wrongful acts.
For 30 years AIM has provided affordable insurance coverage with 24-hour support and educational resources to non-profit, educational organizations and associations. And those organizations think we’re pretty great. We are the #1 insurer of PTAs, PTOs, and Booster Clubs across the nation.
