PA/PTAs, student groups, and teachers are turning to the internet for a variety of fundraising activities — from benefit auctions to crowdfunding for classroom projects. Crowdfunding, which allows groups to pool online donations for a specific cause or project, gives PA/PTAs the opportunity to get all parent members and staff involved in the fundraising process. Certain platforms are open only to teachers, and even for specific uses, but parent leaders can help with the organizing the appeal. Others are open to any user for any type of activity.
