Shmoop will donate 20% of proceeds to student teams and clubs who promote Shmoop Test Prep services.

Shmoop’s Test Prep Fundraiser is the 21st century bake sale (without carbs) or magazine sale (that’s friendlier to brain cells and trees)

Shmoop (, a publisher of digital resources that make learning fun and relevant for students, today announced the launch of its online PSAT Test Prep service. At $19 per student, Shmoop is making college test prep affordable for all families. Shmoop is almost certainly the only source for rigorous PSAT preparation that uses examples ranging from Mario Brothers to To Kill a Mockingbird to “I am the Walrus.”

Shmoop also announced that it will donate 20% of its proceeds to student groups or Parent-Teacher Associations (PTAs) who promote its Online Test Prep services as a group fundraiser. (Student government? Aye! Cheerleading squad? Yay! Chess Club? Check! Swim Team? They’ll get back to you when their heads are above water.)

“It’s tragic to see so many schools forced to scale back extra-curricular activities due to strapped budgets,” said Ellen Siminoff, CEO of Shmoop. “Shmoop wants to help keep student activities alive. Shmoop’s Test Prep Fundraiser is the 21st century bake sale (without carbs) or magazine sale (that’s friendlier to brain cells and trees).”
