The Need, The Problem, The Solution
School budgets are stretched thin all over the U.S. Schools and parents are increasingly turning to fundraising and crowd-funding in particular to meet various financial needs. Whether the need is helping with a capital improvement, buying special school supplies and equipment or some other need, crowd-funding can work quite well. But it turns out that crowd-funding has some problems, especially for Schools.
Traditional crowd-funding campaigns are quick and easy to set-up. While that can be nice, at schools it means that the campaigns often violate accounting processes and regulations. This causes extra work and headaches during the audit. Donation funds are great but not when they generate a bunch of work for the office staff.
SchoolPay Angels is the solution. SchoolPay Angels is the latest module of the award-winning education payment system, SchoolPay. Districts all over the U.S. take hundreds of millions in payments through SchoolPay. SchoolPay Angels has pre-built crowd-funding features for donating to teachers, the free and reduced nutrition fund, and more. Campaigns appear automatically to SchoolPay parents, online at SchoolPayAngels.com, in social media, and more. All with the same, normal SchoolPay fee structure.
