Philadelphia, PA – March 27, 2018 - Librarians today are faced with the challenge of finding educational materials that adequately prepare students’ for this rapidly changing world. PledgeCents’ newest partner, Rourke Educational Media (“Rourke”), is on a mission to help schools build dynamic, 21st century libraries and students through their books and e-books. Starting today, librarians and parents can select Rourke gift cards through the PledgeCents Marketplace to purchase cutting-edge science, social studies, early literacy and high interest books. The partnership enables librarians and parents to gain access to Rourke’s collection of hardcover books and e-books by helping to offset the cost to get these materials into more students’ hands.

“So many of our schools today struggle to mold 21st century-ready students because they only have access to the antiquated educational resources that have been used for decades,” said Andyshea Saberioon, CEO and co-founder of PledgeCents. “For nearly four decades, Rourke has delivered high quality educational resources across science, math, language arts, and more. We are excited to join Rourke in ensuring that today’s libraries and classrooms can tap into their resources and find those books that meet their needs.”

Through the partnership, schools will be able to utilize PledgeCents to seamlessly generate a fundraising page to cover the cost of print and e-books from Rourke by selecting from a variety of gift card options. The PledgeCents team works with each fundraiser to help raise the necessary funds and will also connect the librarian to a member of Rourke’s team to expedite the process. Anyone interested can visit https://www.pledgecents.com/signup/event/rourke to create their own page today.
