A new website, created by a Belgrade Mom is helping schools right here in the Gallatin Valley. donates money to local schools every time someone uses the website to shop online. This is not your typical fundraiser with cheaply made but overpriced merchandise you feel obligated to buy. Instead, you get to choose the store, you get to buy things you need, and your favorite school benefits.

There are over 100 popular stores to choose from and the list just keeps growing. The best part is, many of these stores offer exclusive sales and free shipping when people use the site. So not only are you earning much needed money for schools, you are saving money by doing it. It’s a Win-Win for everybody.

To participate, simply go to  and click Find Your School.  Select your school from the list, and then choose your favorite store.  Complete your purchase as usual and your school will earn a percentage of the sale.   That’s all there is to it!   If your school is not yet on the list, click the Add a School link or you can select *Support All Schools* and proceeds from your purchase will be divided among all participating schools. Don’t forget to bookmark the page for your school so you can easily get back to it next to you shop online.

This is a great opportunity for our schools to earn the extra money they need without parents, teachers and students having to volunteer countless hours of their time to make it happen. When schools are well funded, our kids benefit from opportunities that they would not have had otherwise.  This in turn benefits our local community. So let’s get everyone participating. You don’t have to be a parent or teacher to support our schools. Even  businesses can use the site, saving money on things like office supplies and equipment.

Earning money for your school has never been easier! Just remember to use every time you make an online purchase. And please help spread the word. The more people that use the site, the more money our schools will receive.
