PTO in-a-box takes fundraising to the next level
Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 19, 2010
Organization in-a-box, the leading provider of on-demand relationship management solutions that help community-based organizations operate more effectively and efficiently, announces the launch of its flagship offering, PTO in-a-box for schools and their Parent Teacher Organization or Associations.
PTO in-a-box is powered by Salesnet, which is a leading provider of online CRM that was originally created to drive sales effectiveness in sales teams. Organization in-a-box has taken this system and designed a vertical solution created exclusively to meet the changing needs of today’s school principals and parent-teacher groups. PTO in-a-box captures best-practices and manages documents, volunteers, vendors, events, communications and financial data in one solution.
The National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) “Value of Fundraising” survey (2007) states: 94% of principals say their schools rely on fundraising and 87% see a valuable return on their fundraising investments.
“School districts in every part of the country are feeling the effects of the economic downturn,” said Lisa Glinche, President of Organization in-a-box. “According to The American Association of School Administrators (AASA), the financial crisis is threatening the progress and stability that schools have enjoyed in the past. Because of this, principals are turning toward the schools’ parent teacher organizations to help compensate through fundraising.”
PTO in-a-box helps school districts, principals, and parent teacher groups increase community engagement and fundraising results by making them more self-sufficient and impactful. It lays the foundation for repeatable best-practices and templates making a school’s previous year’s data and documents and recommendations for improvements, available to the next group.
“PTO in-a-box takes fundraising to the next level,” said Barbra Chase, CEO of Organization in-a-box. “We understand it is difficult to consider spending extra money during tough economic times, but spending that money on technology that will increase each school’s fundraising capabilities will help fund basic needs for our students, teachers, and the district to provide greater instruction and learning opportunities than they are able to receive now.”
PTO in-a-box was created to provide school leadership the tools to increase efficiency, sustainability and effectiveness. It was designed with help from principals and parent group leaders and can be configured to meet individual group’s needs.
Additional benefits include: reinvigorating parent leadership, promoting school involvement, encouraging participants to donate and creating confidence around and within the parent-teacher group.
