The PledgeCents Roundup: July 2017
For many teachers across the country, the end of July signals the end of days by the pool and frozen drinks. We’re not ones to pass up an opportunity to brag about the hustle and determination of our teachers, and with many of you now in back in session, we wanted to highlight the amazingness that was accomplished over the course of “summer break.”
Setting Records and Reaching Benchmarks
Building on the successes of June, July was another record setting month for the amount of investments teachers received for their classrooms. We also saw our investment tracker pass $1,000,000 dollars raised across the platform. This benchmark has been on our entire team’s radar for a while and we were excited to celebrate it. You can read more of the details and look back at some of our favorite fundraisers here.

Feedback & New Features
We are constantly striving to improve the fundraising experience for all teachers and administrators and this summer provided an invaluable amount of learning for us. One of the main pieces of feedback we have received is to streamline and expedite the process for disbursing funds once a fundraiser is completed. Our team has been working hard on a solution that will make this process effortless, while still maintaining the high levels of accountability and transparency that we value. Be on the lookout for more details, as we continue to test and pilot this new feature.
We are always looking for feedback, so if there is something you feel can be improved upon or added, don’t hesitate to reach out and share your ideas.
