Green School Fundraising with Carbon Offsets

While there may be no doubt that school fundraising of all angles is a standard of the educational system in America and beyond, there’s one product that you just may never heard of being used to help raise funds for schools; carbon offsets.

With a new program called Brighter Schools put out by the folks at Brighter Planet, schools receive 20% of the cash raised from any purchase of carbon offsets through the program by students, teachers, friends and allies of their school. There’s even a way for schools to track their overall impact as a team reducing their carbon footprint through the website.
Of course that 20% is a far cry from the cash they could be raising through other, more traditional programs. But there’s no doubt they’ll be making a positive contribution in the process.
