Touchless Fundraising provides a safe and convenient way for school groups to raise money in a virtual, online manner.
WOODRIDGE, IL, November 16, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- SchoolKidz.com has launched a new Touchless Fundraising initiative to help school groups raise money in a virtual, online manner. Given the effects of Covid-19, many students and PTOs are working from home and unable to run in-person fundraisers. SchoolKidz has solved this problem and is launching this service to let school groups and Parent Teacher Organizations (PTO) provide their school communities various online fundraiser options.
The Touchless Fundraising provides a safe and convenient way for School groups to raise money for their organization. Essentially, a school signs on to participate and then they are able to run various digital fundraiser programs. For example, they can let parents and students purchase over 650 products across fourteen categories. The school earns a portion of the revenue from each sale. This opportunity offers benefits of virtual kick-offs, shoppable e-catalogs, and online payment. This allows the fundraising team to generate more funds in a much more efficient way, saving time and paper-intensive effort.
Touchless Fundraising complements our existing KitsforKidz.org program to serve non-profit organizations and Teachertailored.com school supply kitting business, which serves thousands of schools and hundreds of thousands of students.
The launch of this new Touchless Fundraising service shows Schoolkidz' focus on innovation and providing additional solutions for our network of school, PTO, parent, and non-profit partners.
Rick Bigelow, Senior Vice President at Skyview Capital and Executive Chairman of Schoolkidz.com, said "We were working to launch these virtual solutions before Covid, but the pandemic has made these online fundraising activities even more crucial."
"We are excited to launch these Touchless Fundraising services to our school and non-profit customers. We can help them meet their fundraising targets in these challenging pandemic times," said Jim Mulder, SchoolKidz President.
