A Fundraising Platform Designed
Specifically for Schools

Does your school use online school fundraising programs? Are you considering it? If so, you’re not alone — more schools than ever are turning to crowdfunding for education. The combination of tighter budgets, higher expenses and larger numbers of students often means that schools must fundraise to meet the needs of their K-12 students.

As more districts turn to online fundraising for schools, they must determine not only their individual fundraising goals but which fundraising platform is the most appropriate. If you’re a leader, administrator or board member considering online school fundraising programs, you may find plenty of options. But only one is designed specifically for the unique needs of schools and school districts — Livingtree’s Give. Unlike other fundraising platforms, our software was developed with crowdfunding for schools as its goal.

Give: for All Your School and District
Fundraising Campaigns

What makes Give unique is its ability to let you completely control and manage all aspects of your online fundraising activities. Because every campaign goes through a customized multi-step approval process, your district oversees every aspect of every campaign without any surprises. That’s one way Give keeps school districts’ needs in mind. As you may already know, districts can face financial and legal consequences if they raise funds inappropriately. Yet, many districts lack any management policies that address crowdfunding. It’s not as simple as just prohibiting crowdfunding either, because then your schools and district would lose access to the sizable benefits that school fundraising programs can produce. 

Livingtree Give is the answer. It’s the only fundraising platform developed and created specifically for K-12 school districts that has built-in automated campaign approval processes, campaign-accounting code tracking, detailed reporting of all campaigns and easy donor marketing.
