Getting Started
See how easy it is to run Math-A-Thons and Read-A-Thons at your school

1Create fundraiser and send invites to parents

Each fundraiser gets a unique sign-up code that can be distributed to parents who can use them to set up personalized profiles for their children

Code is auto-generated when you create fundraiser

2Set activity and donation goals for the students

Administrators and parents can set goals for the number of math games solved or minutes read. Students see these goals in their dashboard and can choose to promote them in their personal donation pages

Support Lucy by sponsoring their reading goals

The Read-A-Thon helps to raise money for P.S. 107 and encourages a love of reading among its students

Hi Nana and Pop-pop,
I have some exciting news to share with you. I am doing a Read-A-Thon at my school, P.S. 107! A Read-A-Thon is a fun event where I read as many books as I can over a few weeks and raise money for my school.
Will you please support me and make a donation? Your donation will make a big difference and encourage me to read more books.

Thank you so much for your support.
Love,
Hazel

Leaderboards are optional, but can be a great way to keep students motivated and excited to participate in your fundraiser! The leaderboards can also be reset at any point, if you would like to reward weekly winners. Student leaderboards are available on the class, grade, and school level and are based on total reading time or number of math games solved.

Auto-Generated, Online Math Games

In Math-A-Thons, students answer as many math problems as they can over a few weeks. Some schools choose to print handouts for the students to work on at home or in school, but we think Math-A-Thons don't have to be homework and can be fun! With ForOurSchool.org, students solve simple, but grade-appropriate math games online that follow the common core math curriculum and get instant feedback. Students get excited as they watch their number of games solved counter tick upwards and inch closer to their goal.

Many schools choose to hold Math-A-Thons over the summer because by that point, students will have learned all the curriculum and the Math-A-Thon can be a fun and competitive way to review it. This can also help to combat the dreaded "summer slide"!

Frequently Asked Questions
See step-by-step tutorials in our full FAQ page

Your school should have sent you a "Fundraiser Code". Once you have that, click the Create Account button. After you complete the sign up process, you can then create a Student profile and that is where you will enter the "Fundraiser Code". If you already have an account, you can create a new Student profile by clicking on your name in the top right after you have logged in and clicking the "Add Student Profile" link.
Yes, we are COPPA compliant. I encourage you to read our full Children's privacy policy, but in short, we collect very little personal information from students via their parents or guardians and only the information needed for the fundraiser they are participating in. We never sell data to third-party services and we delete all student personal information shortly after the completion of a fundraiser
You can always send us messages at our Contact Us page and a ForOurSchool.org representative will get back to you shortly.
