How to Run a Write-a-thon Fundraiser
- If you don't have a StoryJumper account, click "Sign Up" at the top of this page. Be sure to indicate that you're a "Teacher" and follow the guided tour.
- Click Home and then Create a Write-athon from your home page. Fill out the form. A typical Write-a-thon may run for 1-2 months, depending on computer availability at school and home.
- A few weeks before the Write-a-thon starts, an administrator/teacher/parent sets up StoryJumper accounts for teachers and students.
- Write-a-thon leaders may identify additional school incentives (e.g. special school privileges) that could be offered to motivate students to sign up more sponsors. These leaders promote the Write-a-thon and send out instructions to teachers, students, and parents.
- With parental help, students start to encourage family/friends anywhere in the world to go to their personal Write-a-thon web page and sponsor them.
- Teachers create their lesson plan.
- Students start writing their StoryJumper books at school and home.
- Using our fundraising tools, students continue to encourage family/friends to sponsor them.
- Administrators/teachers review their Write-a-thon dashboards to monitor progress.
- After the Write-a-thon is finished, all rewards are distributed:
- * 90% of total funds received go to the school. The school uses at least 15% of funds to purchase any StoryJumper books or a gift card (for future purchases). The balance is sent to the school as a check or wire transfer.
- * 3% of funds covers transaction fees and 7% covers StoryJumper costs.
- * Sponsors receive a digital copy of their sponsored student's book.
- * Any additional school incentives (e.g. special privileges) are awarded to top fundraisers.
