Engage Your Small Business: Small businesses have the power to make big change at an organization like The School Fund. For a small investment, businesses can sponsor one or two students, making all the difference in the world to those individuals. Supporting The School Fund communicates to customers your business’s commitment to education equity globally. No matter how much you choose to commit, you can be sure that 100% of those dollars will go directly to fund students’ school fees in the developing world. Please email our Strategy & Development Officer Tim Eisen at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in getting your small business involved.
Matching Grants: Partner with a school or religious group and agree to match donations raised in a fundraising drive up to a certain amount. Capped matching grants are a great way to double the impact of a fundraising drive and encourage individuals to donate.
Devote a Portion of Your Profits to a Student: Have a TSF “day” where 5% of profits go to funding students’ educations. These kinds of campaigns have the potential to powerfully impact both your business and The School Fund’s goal of raising awareness about the educational inequities in the developing world.
“Round Up” for The School Fund: Ask your customers if they would like to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar where the difference goes to supporting a student’s education. These donations can spark a conversation about The School Fund and have benefits that extend beyond a simple one-time transaction.
Add On a Dollar: Ask customers if they would like to make a donation of one dollar in support of The School Fund at the end of each purchase. These kinds of micro donations are a limited commitment for donors, but together can change a student’s life.
