We’ve partnered with many organizations to bring education technology discounts to schools and other education entities. This blog post is part of a series that contains information about discounts when purchasing ClassHub and other Squirrels LLC products.
Squirrels LLC partnered with PledgeCents, an education fundraising organization, to help educational entities raise money to bring technology to classrooms nationwide. This technology includes our ClassHub student device management solution and much more.
What is PledgeCents?
PledgeCents is a fundraising organization that helps streamline the process of getting technology into classrooms. PledgeCents makes classroom funding simple and eliminates teachers’ out-of-pocket expenses. So far, PledgeCents has served more than 650,000 students and has raised more than $1.2 million toward educational opportunities for students and teachers.
Teachers that are looking for new classroom collaboration tools or other screen-mirroring solutions can use PledgeCents to crowd source instead of relying on minimal school budgets or out-of-pocket funds.
The more proactively teachers share their personalized fundraising page on Facebook, Twitter, etc., the more people can learn about their education need and invest in the campaign. When fundraising is over, PledgeCents sends the check directly to their school or organization so they can proceed with the purchasing process of the selected vendor.
Here's a look at some of the benefits for creating a fundraising page with PledgeCents. PledgeCents:
- Is PreK-12 focused
- Connects you with philanthropists and businesses that offer matching opportunities to gain more support for fundraising pages
- Allows members to keep what they’ve raised even if the goal wasn’t met
- Allows educators decide what tools and solutions best fit their needs and which vendor to purchase them from
