We support teachers and students in all learning environments including:
Nope, not at all.
Definitely. A group of classes or an entire school can join together to do a fundraiser.
The fundraiser can even be done by groups associated with a school, such as an after school robotics club or a summer tech camp.
Sure. Let us know via email, and we will provide you with the items for which you’ve already raised money and an Amazon gift card for the remaining balance.
No, a student’s job is to learn. Parents, teachers and the community spread the word to raise the money for the STEM items.
It does not cost anything to start a campaign.
Our service fee is just 12% and is deducted at the end of the campaign from the amount raised. This amount can be 75% less than what some other classroom fundraisers charge.
For example, if you want to do a quick campaign for a $100 STEM item, we charge $12 while other sites charges up to $45.
Here is a breakdown for a $100 STEM item:
Others: 15% service charge + $30 setup fee = $45
Us: 12% service charge + $0 setup fee = $12
Other third party charges may include tax and shipping if applicable, and a paypal processing fee of a few percent of the contribution amount.
The items are shipped directly to the teacher. Because no money is transferred, we remove the complexity of dealing with bank accounts and we ensure that funds are used exclusively for the stated purpose.
Our service isn’t all or nothing. Even if you don’t reach your fundraising goal you will still receive what you raised. Unlike other services, if you asked for three items but you only raised enough for two, we will provide you with two items. The remainder of the funds can be sent to you as an Amazon Gift Card.
Or you may choose to extend the duration of your campaign so you can raise the full amount.
Ideally all contributions should be made online, but if someone gives you cash rather than contributing online, you must make a contribution to your campaign online for the amount that they gave you.
If you raise more than your goal amount you can choose additional STEM items. If you haven’t raised enough for an additional item, you can choose to receive an Amazon gift card.
$60 in items is the minimum.
