School Fundraising Tips & Success Stories from Schoola

Donate and Support Education

Fill a box from home with quality clothing, shoes, and purses for the whole family. We accept new and gently worn clothes that originally retailed for $30 or more. Print a shipping label and then just leave your donation box for the mail carrier. We’ll sort and sell your items, and 40% of the sales proceeds (minus the cost of inbound shipping) will go to a school or one of our partner causes of your choice.

Parents love it because they can donate gently used kids’ and women’s clothing by mail from home throughout the year, which allows them to clean out their closet for the benefit of their school. Earn funds for your school simply by cleaning out your closet.

To date, we have worked with over 30,000 schools to raise much needed funds for arts, music, athletics, science and other programs that might otherwise be cut from those schools. Thanks to donations from parents like you, children across the country are swinging on new playgrounds, using new iPads in school and traveling for sports and arts events.

Due to this incredible response, we have accumulated a large backlog of clothes in our warehouse and will not be scheduling any school-wide drives through the end of the 2016-2017 school year. Instead, we will be focusing on processing and selling the clothes that communities like yours have already sent in.

  1. I would like to sell some items

  2. Can this fund raiser be done for a homeschool? Obviously it is non accredited but IS registered through the state web site.

    • Hi Candy, Generally you cannot do a fundraiser for a homeschool, although I believe there are homeschool organizations you can fundraise for. If you reach out to our fundraising coaches, they can answer all your questions: coach@schoola.com. Thanks! Turi

  3. can any non for profit organization use this as a fundraiser, such as church or a non profit run athletic team?

  4. Can our group of cheerleaders use your service

  5. do you take gently used swim wear?

  6. Do you take gently used costumes? The dancers at my daughter’s dance school accumulate hundreds of costumes every year in aggregate – we are looking for a place to donate them…..

  7. I think this is a great concept! With the clothing drive though, would it be possible to give the raised amount from our school to a needy school?

    • Hi Kristy, Absolutely. Reach out to coach@schoola.com for more info. Thanks, Turi

      • I have done schoola drives at the school I work at, Glenwood Elementary School. We don’t get many donations because our school is located in the inner city of Toledo, OH and 99% of our families live in poverty. If you’re looking for a school to donate your earnings to, we would greatly appreciate it!

  8. How much does this cost?

    Wanting to request donation bags for our other daughter’s school but her school doesn’t show up as a option but a lot of other schools around are showing up. How can her school be included to get donation bags.

  12. Good morning! I was wondering if there is a limit on the types of schools that can be fundraised for using your website? I currently attend the University of Miami, and my group is always looking for ways to help fundraise!

    Thank you!

  13. We are a non-profit Preschool and Daycare Center. Could we do this as a fund raiser?

  14. Hi yet do we get any credited to r account for clothes we donate

  15. Do you provide donation forms for tax purposes to those who donate items?

    Your main page says checks are sent twice a month but your drive page says quarterly. Which is it?

    • Hi Clemen, we issue checks twice a year in July and January. There is a $20 threshold that each school must raise in order for the check to be released. If the threshold is not reached, the money raised will be rolled over to the next period. Let me know if there is anything else I can answer for you. -Ashlie
