[Press Release] PledgeCents and Mackin partner to help schools and students raise funds for quality print and digital educational materials
The partnership aims to bring access to Mackin’s extensive catalog of digital and printed titles through the PledgeCents Marketplace.
Philadelphia, PA – August 25, 2017
One of the most difficult tasks that a teacher faces is finding materials for their classrooms that are both high quality and engaging. PledgeCents’ newest partner, Mackin, is on a mission to ensure that teachers are able to access high quality digital and print materials from over 18,000 publishers that will help create engaging and exciting learning environments for their students. Access to Mackin’s nearly 3 million print titles and 1.9 million digital titles are now available through the PledgeCents Marketplace. The partnership enables teachers and parents to gain access to Mackin K-12 fiction and non-fiction educational materials by helping to offset the cost to get these materials into more students’ hands.
“For teachers, the process of finding and sorting through instructional materials can be inundating,” said Andyshea Saberioon, CEO and co-founder of PledgeCents. “Mackin is one of the most established organizations in the education space and their history of delivering quality printed and digital titles to school libraries and teachers is unmatched. We are excited to join Mackin in ensuring that teachers are able to tap into their expansive catalog and leverage these learning materials in their classrooms.”
Through the partnership, teachers and schools will be able to utilize PledgeCents to seamlessly generate a fundraising page to cover the cost of print and eBooks and other digital content from Mackin. The PledgeCents team works with each fundraiser to help raise the necessary funds and will purchase the plan immediately after the fundraiser ends and also connect the teacher to a member of Mackin’s team to expedite the process.

“One of the greatest barriers to providing education at any level is the constant struggle of working with limited or shrinking budgets. PledgeCents is a remarkably easy and clever way for schools to raise the additional funds needed to purchase quality educational materials”, stated Troy Mikell, Director of Marketing and Communications for Mackin.
