Raising Money for Chicago Public Schools

Schools have been raising needed funds for years by having students sell everything imaginable from candy bars to wrapping paper. As a former educator, the founder of iscream4reading had a more relevant approach which allowed the kids to focus on learning while still raising money. She came to SocialRaise because she needed a digital agency that has deep roots in education, nonprofits and fundraising with technology.

SocialRaise partnered with iscream4reading to bring her vision to fruition: an all-inclusive program for a read-a-thon focused on children’s reading time that also keeps their minds active during school breaks. The easy-to-use, turnkey solution created by SocialRaise includes:
• Marketing tools and process support;
• Materials for students;
• A secure donation process; and
• Everything empowered by a custom web experience for each school.

The process is simple and safe for schools, kids, parents and donors. One school had such a staggering success in both dollars and kids’ reading hours in their first time out, they couldn’t imagine why they’d go back to their old fundraisers. That’s relevant.
