Edco Debuts New Fundraising Tools for Teachers, Students

Edco, provider of an online fundraising platform for school clubs and teams, has launched a new suite of tools for teachers and students.

Collectively dubbed the "Step-by-Step Fundraising Guide," the new tools are designed to help "students and teachers describe their funding needs and present their activity as a compelling fundraising campaign," according to a news release. "It then provides instructions for communicating with friends, family members and other community stakeholders. To ensure students' safety and privacy, all correspondence through the platform uses a secure Edco email address."

"Public funding has not been able to keep up with the demands that schools face in order to provide students with a 21st century education. Schools have signed up with Edco to close this gap and raise money beyond traditional methods such as product sales, which only go so far," said Avi Daman, Edco CEO, in a prepared statement. "Edco is especially proud to support student programs like robotics, music, theatre, and sports teams, which are essential for fostering students' creativity, providing them an outlet to explore their passions and teaching them leadership skills."
