356 Reasons Why We Exist for Teachers


Teachers' personal money is the most common source of money for classroom educational products.  92% of teachers surveyed report spending their own money for school supplies and 85% for instructional materials for their classrooms, according to a survey just released by the National School Supply and Equipment Association. These teachers spent $356 from their own pocket in the 2009-2010 school year.  So why do we exist? To enable parents to help offset some of these costs for their children’s education.

Presented in conjunction with TeacherWeb®, a leading provider of classroom websites, Classroom Fundraiser is available to all teachers, PTAs/ PTOs, and schools. Educators register on and receive a special ID. When parents and friends purchase magazine subscriptions using the ID at the website or by phone, the classroom/ school receives 50% of the money spent.

Simple, easy, and effective.
