Ways to attract more even donors

If you’ve set up your website and entered your contacts’ information – bravo! You are helping us reach our collective fundraising goal of $80,000. On Sunday, April 2, Pledgestar will automatically send an email reminder to any contacts you’ve entered who have not yet donated. If you want to go above and beyond, here are some ways you can get student’s fundraising link out to even more people:

  • Add the fundraising link to your Facebook page.
  • Want to share your student’s link on Instagram? The standard link isn’t compatible with Instagram; however, you can create a link that will work on Instagram. Thanks to Leah Liebler for discovering this!
  • Add the link to your email signature.
  • Work in an office? Print a QR code (available on your Pledgestar page) for the link and post it near your desk space.


PTA is so grateful for your support of our Read-A-Thon! Thank you!!
