Why does the PAC run Fundraisers? Where does the Money Go, and Who Decides?
Where do PAC funds come from?
Typically all PACs in BC receive $20 per student from provincial gaming revenue. The rest of PAC funds come from fundraising. The major fundraiser at Hudson is the Lunch Fundraiser. Other fundraisers that have occurred include:
- Winter Fair
- Book Drive for the Library and Classrooms
- Scholastic Book Fair
- There is also non-PAC fundraising at the school. Grade 6 and 7 students typically fundraise to support their class camping trip.
The school also raises money for charities, including the Terry Fox run, the Poppy Fund, the Vancouver Food Bank, and the Hear and Stroke Foundation.
