COVID-19 is changing our lives on a daily basis. Schools and community organizations such as libraries will look different this Fall due to social distancing requirements which means a shift in fundraising strategies. Our session will focus how organizations like yours can take advantage of digital fundraising tools and techniques to promote a reading challenge that is focused on raising money and reaching the mobile fundraiser.
Read for My School (www.readformyschool.com) is a DIY fundraising app focused on getting kids excited about reading while learning the importance of giving back to their school. We provide a platform for schools and community groups (PTA/PTO/HSA; etc..) to create custom reading challenges with the focus on raising money with minimal volunteer resources. We currently support fundraisers in the US, UK, EU. We just launched commerce support for CA and Au and expanded platform support from the web to native apps on Apple App Store and Google Play.
