It’s that time of year again when your kid comes home talking about the dreaded F-word… FUNDRAISING. But raising money to support your child’s school shouldn’t be a chore. And thanks to a new initiative by Microsoft called Deals for Schools, it doesn’t have to be. You can save money on your shopping–and your school will receive a portion of your purchases. How? An outgrowth of Bing Deals, which is a shopping site that aggregates the best deals for products and services available in your area, Deals for Schools works in much the same way. The difference is that Deals for Schools allows non-profit school groups and organizations, like your child’s Glee Club or Math League, to earn a commission off of deals bought through the site.
Two ways to earn money for your school:
Recruit new vendors for the site and earn a commission off of every deal they sell.
Post a link to Deals for Schools on your social media accounts and websites and earn your organization money every time a consumer purchases a deal through your link.
Why not become the most popular parent at your next PTA meeting and suggest a fundraising campaign that everyone can be happy with. Sign up your child’s school group and say bye-bye to door-to-door wrapping paper and chocolate sales.
