Burnsville, MN (PressExposure) April 28, 2011 -- Funds4Books, an innovative online fundraising program for libraries and schools designed by Mackin Educational Resources, is gaining recognition as a successful tool for promoting literacy and helping schools get much needed funding for high-quality reading materials.
Loni Niles, from Wadena-Deer Creek School District, MN, stated, "The fact that 100 percent of every donation comes right to the library is truly amazing and sets Funds4Books apart from other fundraising programs. Even more importantly, the books are labeled and shipped for free, and Funds4Books doesn't require staff or volunteer time."
With the next school year only a few months away, many educators are planning their back-to-school events. To get them started, Mackin is giving up to $100 to every school that signs up for a Funds4Books program before May 31 and runs a program in the fall.
"We know that educators need funding as well as tools that save time," said Randal Heise, Mackin president. "Funds4Books meets both of those needs."
Custom collection analysis services are also available free of charge, providing educators with an accurate picture of their current library collection. This information can be used to make donors aware of library needs and inform them how donations will be used.
"It's the easiest fundraiser I've ever used," said Donna Miller of Cherry Creek School District, CO. "No cumbersome paperwork - before, during or after - no kids going door-to-door, no money to count nor accounts to reconcile, no complaints about products being of poor quality, etc."
