Santa Clara, California (PRWEB) April 27, 2010
Two California school mothers, concerned with continuing budget cuts in the school systems, announce the launch of Give2MySchool, an online shopping destination for school fundraising. Parents login at http://www.Give2MySchool.com to provide their school affiliation and then shop at 150+online merchants just the way they do today. Give2MySchool credits the designated school with the affiliate fees it collects except for a small handling fee of 1% of the sales. Schools can earn anywhere from 1% to 34% of the purchases parents make through this site.
"The idea for Give2MySchool was born as a result of the drastic budget cuts in California and other states' educational systems putting further stress on school administrators and staff in figuring out how to manage the financial resources while at the same time ensuring that students are educated to the point of being competitive at the national and international levels." said Sukhi Singh, CEO of Give2MySchool. Sukhi Singh teaches in the California school system.
Assuming that each family in a school of 500 students spends $3,000 annually in online shopping at Give2MySchool, it will result in the sales of $1.5M. Even with a modest average of 4% contribution, a school can supplement its budget by $60,000 annually.
"We wanted to create a simple model that gives the most contribution back to the schools. There are existing sites which either ask too much personal information or just don't give enough back to the schools and hence we wanted to help by creating this site." said Jigisha Bengali, COO of Give2MySchool.
