Caring Causes: Bloom Education Fundraising

As a teacher, I know how short budgets are in schools. Teachers pay an estimated $1.6 billion nationwide on their own classrooms, with approximately 85% of educators putting their money towards purchasing instructional materials. I am one of those teachers. So I was excited to review a fundraising program by Bloom.

Bloom wanted to answer schools' need by helping them raise money while easing the financial burdens on teachers and by providing free instructional content, so they created the E-Pass.

It's Bloom's second fundraising savings card program - featuring unique discounts on Fabletics, Tula, The Bouqs and more - and it was developed in partnership with Education.com, the nation's leading online education destination for teachers and parents. Education.com has had over 9 million people sign up as members, 4 million of those are teachers. There is no other fundraising program like this in the country.

In addition to profits earned from the 50% savings card fundraiser, when schools run the E-Pass program and hit specific sales goals, they can earn free subscriptions to Education.com's award-winning online platform for every teacher.

For every 500 E-Passes sold, a school will raise $5,000 and 10 teachers will receive an Education.com Pro account for one year, a value worth more than $700 additional dollars.
