School Fundraising Tips & Success Stories from Schoola

You’ve Made This Year the Best!


When reflecting on the past year, and looking ahead to 2016, this has been the best year yet for Schoola because of the impact YOU have made on kids’ experiences at school. Thanks to you, we now have a community of more than 600,000 families working to support more than 20,000 schools across the country. And by shopping our site, you’ve given more than a million items of clothing a second life, and in turn given new life to underfunded programs at schools.


Let’s take a trip down memory lane with some of our favorite moments from the past year and some of our most impactful community members:

Most Loyal Shopper
Our most loyal shopper placed her first order in 2013, and since then has placed a whopping 86 orders, making a huge impact for schools. You can make an impact and be rewarded, too. Here’s how you can get 30% off all your orders in January, February, and March:  Simply place your 3rd ever order of $25 value or more by Dec. 31, 2015 and we’ll email you a unique coupon code on January 4. Already placed 3 orders over $25? You’ll get a code in your inbox in the new year! (Please note, the $25 value is after discounts but includes orders paid for in both cash and credit.)

Our Superstar Referrer:
Have you “met” Collin of Hip2Save? She’s a dynamo mommy and couponista with a loyal community of likeminded people. She’s shared Schoola with an amazing 4,000+ people in 2015. Thanks to her, that means more schools served and fundraising for schools. You can take a cue from her and start sharing your referral link–just grab it here.

This is what Collin has to say about Schoola:
“I love that Schoola makes it so affordable to shop name-brand clothing for both my kiddos and myself… while also allowing me to contribute to local schools in my area. Such a neat concept!”

    New at this and love it already

  5. I love the idea that I can buy great quality clothing and at the same time bring money back to the schools. Its a win win all the way around

  6. Shopping on Schoola is so great! There is something different every day! You never know what you are going to find or what name brand is going to be there. Not to mention how cheap it is!!! I love that it helps schools out! Maybe some day every one will be able to donate, and every school will receive funds! Most of my kids clothes, and mine, have come from schoola! Thanks guys! Keep up the awesome work!

  7. Just love Schoola. It helps me while I also help.

  8. I love Schoola! I just wish that the turn around for bags being opened and clothing posted was quicker than it seems to be… I’ve sent it two bags since October 2015, and neither have shown as being there or anything yet. :-(

    • Hi Jenni, Thanks for your positive feedback! It’s true–we’ve received more donations than ever in the past few months and are behind on processing. Apologies for the delay. Don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer care team to see if they can give you a better ETA: Thanks,Turi

  9. I’ve been donating and buying with Schoola before it became so popular. We love it and just hope it doesn’t ever change for the worse like most good things do. Love you!
