Imagine if READING Replaced Product Fundraising in Schools

Wouldn't you rather have your kids focus on reading rather than trying to sell the same old over-priced fundraising products that nobody wants? Groups raise 2 1/2 times more with a Read-a-thon than their previous product fundraisers.

Richland Elementary's Read-a-thon raised

$41,818.36

"The principal loved it, the teachers loved it, the students loved it, and the parents loved it because of the educational theme and that we raised two and a half times more money than our previous catalog fundraiser. I especially loved it because I look like a hero for recommending it!"     Elizabeth Williams

Kids focus on reading instead of selling
All the money was handled and tracked for us

Famous Thoughts on the Importance of Reading

Dr. Seuss
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go."
Laura Bush
"A love of books, of holding a book, turning its pages, looking at its pictures, and living its fascinating stories goes hand-in-hand with a love of learning."
Walt Disney
"There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island."
Jaqueline Kennedy
"There are many little ways to enlarge your world. Love of books is the best of all."

Think about it...

Your students are already doing it. All your readers have to do is read for 30 minutes a day for 10 days.

It's easy as pie.

The hardest part is deciding to get started. From there we provide everything you need for your read-a-thon.

We make it fun.

Our system was designed for kids. It's fun, encourages participation and even includes prizes and rewards.

Learn More About Read-a-thon Fundraisers:

There is no better way for a school, school group or group of school aged kids to raise money than a Read-a-thon. Why? Because family, friends and neighbors understand how important education and reading skills are. When asked most people will make generous donations to encourage a child to read. Very few fundraising ideas offer such clear benefits to children and the groups they are raising money for.

We provide a complete read-a-thon system. We help your readers get the most sponsors possible with print materials, email campaigns and social media tool. We provide a prize center as an incentive for readers to get as many sponsors as possible. We collect all payments so children are not handling money. We send daily report cards to readers and administrators showing current results along with suggestions on what actions should be done to maximize the effectiveness of your read-a-thon.

Our read-a-thons consist of 10 reading sessions. Each session is 30 minutes long. Readers can read in class as a group or they can hold their own reading sessions. Once your read-a-thon is set up you click on Start a Reading Session and start your 30 minute timer. If you're reading in class everyone in attendance is given credit for that session.
