Track all donations down to the penny. You know exactly how much you are earning in real-time - offering your school or group FULL TRANSPARENCY! With other fundraisers, you rarely know how much your school is actually getting from each sale or event.
Traditional fundraisers require an army of volunteers & no-one wants to sign-up to help. SchoolRaising requires NO VOLUNTEERS ! Other than helping to spread the word to ask your freinds and family to buy from the SchoolRaising website, there is very little time requirement for parents.
Traditional fundraisers only take place at certain times each year. SchoolRaising helps you raise money all year long.
Schools pay no fees, but have the opportunity to raise significant funds.

With SchoolRaising, Buyers get the full value of each product at normal prices & the vendor donates a portion of each sale to the schools in the hopes of gaining your loyalty and future business. So it's a win-win for everyone.

Many other part-time jobs involve pyramid schemes, where you have to try to convince your family and friends to purchase overpriced products so you can make some money. They also encourage you to convince your freinds & family to sign up to be part of your "team", so you can make money off of anything that they sell too. This is usually an uncomforable situation for both sides.

With SchoolRaising, there's no selling of overpriced products to your friends or family or asking them to "Join Your Team" so you can make money off of them. That's just not our model, as no one really likes to pressure their friends just so they can make a few bucks.
