Question: Cash Reserves

What is the appropriate amount of cash to carryover each year? Or should all funds be spent each year unless they are designated for a specific purpose (i.e. saving for playground equipment)?

We recommend that you carry over at least enough money so you don't have to start the year with a fundraiser. It's OK to run a fall fundraiser, but you'll make a better impression if it isn't the first communication you have with parents -- especially those who are new to the school.

They almost never have problems with money transfers, but if some kind of failure occurs, you can always call the remitly phone number and they will help fix it since every client is very important to them.
