Growkids Means Smart Green Fundraising for Schools

growkids school fundraising photoSchool may be out for the summer, but the truth is that many PTA's and school organizations start planning for next year's fundraisers a good deal in advance. And there's an eco-minded fundraising company called Growkids that's offering 50% of the proceeds to your school or organization, a vast improvement over some of the organizations offering much, much less that we told you about in a post called "Green Fundraising with One Big Caveat" not so very long ago.It turns out that Growkids was founded in 2004 by Sarah Talley, a mom who envisioned planet conscious fundraising for schools and organizations through the sale of sustainable, natural products.

Today Growkids promotes products that are produced organically, are made from recycled materials and serve an environmental purpose while being fashionable as well.

It looks to me like this could be a terrific opportunity to raise the cash you need to fund programs through a company that's genuinely dedicated to making both a profit and a difference without putting the financial squeeze to your organization in the interests of making it happen.
