Houston, TX, June 06, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- PledgeCents, Inc., fast becoming the preferred crowdfunding platform for schools, education non-profits and parents, reached a major milestone earlier this month by delivering more than $500,000 to classrooms nationwide since their launch in 2014. The site, which aims to bring resources and opportunities to students across the country by alleviating funding needs, uniquely connects the causes it hosts with individuals and corporations who are interesting in investing in the education. What’s unique about PledgeCents is that it maintains accountability for the organizations by providing administrator oversight and delivering the funds directly to the organization allowing teachers, parents, students and community members to all play a role in improving the education being delivered to students.
Andy Saberioon, co-founder and CEO, said the milestone represents the growing acceptance of crowdfunding not only by schools, but also by the community. “Seeing over $500,000 raised for classrooms through PledgeCents shows how the giving community is continuing to move away from old means of giving and moving towards processes that are simple, transparent, and have a direct impact,” he says. “We are very excited to be on the forefront of this transition in the education space and are even more excited to be working on ways to better the experience for our hard working teachers and our generous investors [donors].”
PledgeCents attributes its success to date to the relentless focus on soliciting feedback from the teachers and schools that utilize the platform and acting quickly to respond by addressing their needs. By focusing on listening to their users, the team has earned the trust of more than 1,000 schools and non-profits across the country. More recently, the team has been looking to establish more partnerships through networks like 100kin10 to increase the ways it can help alleviate the funding needs.
“What’s exciting about achieving funding milestones likes these,” said Ricky Johnson, co-founder and CFO, “is that it allows us to expand our reach with partners. There are many more ways that we can leverage our platform to help the organizations we work with and we have some exciting things in the pipeline that we can’t wait to bring to our users soon.”
