Don’t let money get in the way of providing great educational experiences

Budget cuts, growing classroom sizes and inadequate resources increasingly limit the ability of educators to do their job the way they wish they could. According to a recent report, 99.5 percent of all public school teachers spend their own money on classroom expenses, with a national average of $485 per year coming straight from teachers’ pockets.

This is unacceptable. School fundraisers on YouCaring allow educators to access extra money for field trips, arts programs, special projects or supplies. Financial limits shouldn’t translate into an inferior education for kids. Students deserve rewarding and exciting new educational experiences, and teachers deserve access to the resources that will help them provide thosewithout having to dip into their own paychecks to do so.

School Fundraising - Tip 1

School Fundraising - Tip 2

Engage Students’ Parents

Your crowdfunding campaign gives you the power not only to encourage donations, but also to communicate with parents and keep onlookers in the loop about what’s going on in your classroom. Upload photos, post updates and share videos of the projects you’re working on in order to demonstrate to families how your campaign will benefit their students.

School Fundraising - Tip 3

Keep More Money For Your School

Here at YouCaring, we believe that educators have an incredible power to shape our society’s future for the better, but sometimes they aren’t provided with the resources to do that on their own. YouCaring is committed to compassionate crowdfunding, meaning that the money raised for schools will stay with the schools. The YouCaring platform has always and will always be free to fundraise.
