Interesting question.
I'm not big on supporting sports programs for schools when our academic standards are dropping like paralyzed falcons (gee, remember when lotteries were going to solve school budget woes?).
And I was about to support a fundraiser oen day when I realized that the kids were raising legal defense fees for a group of students with gang affiliations accused of rape.
That said, even though we don't have kids, we are ahppy to pay school taxes; we live in a society and those schoolkids will grow up to be our neighbors one day, so it's in our best interests to see them educated, after all.
But as for fundraisers, I try to focus on elementary schools raising funds for field trips and, of course, Girl Scout Cookie sales!
Woo-hoo, go Thin Mints!!!

We don't have any food stores in my town, so I go to the ones in adjacent towns. On any given Saturday or Sunday, there are some kids from a school program looking to raise money. If it is not your school, do you contribute?
