A Read-a-thon is a better way for schools to raise money.
Instead of spending time selling overpriced fundraising products, students focus on reading. Students commit to completing 10 reading sessions, ranging from 10-30 minutes a day for 10 days. They can choose any book they want to read.
Readers build personal Read-a-thon pages that they share with friends and family using social media, email or text. Those friends and family are asked to support the reader by making a one-time online donation.
Unlike other fundraisers, a Read-a-thon does not require many volunteers. There is no cash to handle; no record keeping; and nothing to sell.
Your school or group along with your readers keep 90% of the money donated. The school receives 75% of all donations and readers keep 15% of what they personally raise to spend on prizes in our online prize center.
