Why Choose SOS:

Research Based Structure

Support Ohio Schools has experience with over 300 campaigns since its' inception. Working with universities and state-based associations Support Ohio Schools has studied what makes certain campaigns successful and what makes others unsuccessful. We pass along those studies and key topics to your organization

Levy Calendar

Support Ohio Schools will provide your campaign with a week-by-week calendar with a checklist. This allows your organization to make sure they are on track, communicating the needs of that week and planning for up-coming weeks. This calendar will help keep your levy on schedule, organized, and coordinated.

Webinars

Webinar topics will include items like volunteer recruitment, fundraising, and campaign organization. They will coincide with the calendar so that you are ready for the up-coming week or weeks. This will give your campaign structure and ideas for important topics that will come up within your campaign. We will also have some collaboration within campaigns for sharing of best preactices.

Voter Targeting

Support Ohio Schools has access to data to help target the voters you need and want to say "YES" to your levy. This can be a great help with door-to-door contacts, phone lists, or targeted mailing lists. This helps save time with volunteers and their time as well as saves money with targeted mailers. No longer will you be wasting valuable time and money trying to know your audience.

Website

Support Ohio Schools has a website template(s) for you to use. This allows you to plug-and-play while building your website. Everything can be customized to your likes/colors/logos/slogans. Support Ohio Schools provides you with a checklist to complete beforehand, that allows our designers to build the basic structure in a minimal amount of time. There is also training provided that allows your campaign to update on your own.

Digital Toolkit

We have taken Support Ohio Schools' FAMOUS Levy Book and digitized it! What does this mean for you? You will have access to the levy book and its fabulous knowledge, graphs, and information in a digital toolkit, able to be accessed from anyone who has login credentials! This allows you to have multiple people have access to the literature from a computer, tablet, or even a cell phone!

Check-Ins

Support Ohio Schools is committed to keeping your campaign on track as well as keeping you in the loop. We can check-in with you periodically, answer questions, and keep your campaign in full swing. We understand that you do not run a campaign every year, so questions will come up--and we are happy to guide you through any questions that come up!

Graphic Design

Support Ohio School has a graphic designer that we work with that will work with you and your campaign to make professional mailers for your community. Our designer works for a substantially reduced price for Support Ohio Schools clients. It is included within your fee for Support Ohio Schools!
