Teach For America: Summer 2018
We’re proud to have partnered with Teach For America (TFA) for the 3rd year in a row! Over this last summer, first year TFA corps members have raised over $265,000 to support their students’ learning! As we all know, every last cent helps especially when setting up a new classroom, and that’s why we are proud to have zero platform fees! It was also amazing to see so many second year corps members and TFA alumni return to use PledgeCents this last summer…together over $300,000 was raised this summer for our TFA family!
Our team was excited and fortunate to visit eleven institutes throughout the summer: Atlanta, Dallas, Delta, Houston, Miami, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Phoenix, New York, Nashville, and Los Angeles. Speaking with so many individuals who share such a passion and dedication to the field of education was truly wonderful and inspiring. In addition, while we were unable to join in for the Tulsa and Chicago institutes, both were active on our platform and joined in to raise additional funds for their classrooms!
We’d like to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to the top three institutes who raised the most funds this summer!
Philadelphia, New York, Atlanta, Delta
This year, we helped streamline the sign-up process for corps members even more and provided the funds via an amazon gift-card so they could make whatever purchases they needed! It was so amazing to see that over 6,000 people invested in these fundraisers to support these amazing educators and their deserving students! There were many fundraisers which stood out among the rest, and managed to raise exceptional amounts of funds! While it was so hard to pick and choose which to share, we’ve highlighted a few below because we just can’t imagine keeping all the excitement to ourselves.

Another big shout out to all TFA corps members who raised additional funds for their classrooms! Your students are lucky to have you, and will surely appreciate the new supplies and experiences that you will share with them. Thank you again to Teach For America for allowing us to join in their quest of bringing equal educational opportunities to all children! We can’t wait to join you all next summer… but in the meantime, we’re here to continue helping support you and your students throughout the school year! Best wishes for an amazing year of learning and growth to all!
