Wheaton College yearbook dealing with budget cuts
Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE
Many yearbook programs have been facing funding problems in the current economy.
This story from Wheaton College in Massachusetts, about budget cuts being faced by the staff of the yearbook, Nike, is a common one.
To make things more complicated, according to adviser Andrea Holden, a common source of revenue in the past – ads sold to parents – have been much more difficult this year during the rough economy.
What advice or ideas can you offer up to yearbook staffs facing the budget crunch? What are some good ways to raise funds and supplement the yearbook program’s income?
