Reward Education Launches Its Online Interface
Benefitting school(s) of choice through online purchasing
LOS ANGELES, CA – Reward Education, (www.rewardeducation.org) a non-profit dedicated to financially benefitting school(s) of choice through online purchasing, is now in full operation. Users can now funnel a percentage of their online purchase to the school(s) of their choice simply by using the online interface.
“It’s as simple as utilizing the site as an intermediary between you, the buyer, and the abundance of online retailers,” Reward Education President Adam Geczi said. “As long as people continue to buy online, preschools through graduate institutions can benefit financially from purchases made.”
Reward Education has partnered with over 1200 online merchants who want to support kids and local educationAll that is required for registration is the user’s email, password, and beneficiary educational institution.
Both products and online merchants can be located using the “search”tab. By clicking on the selected item or retailer, the user is brought directly to the store’s page. The order is tracked and the totals are recorded. A pre-negotiated percentage of that total is then donated to the school of your choice.
Created to help benefit financially suffering academic districts, schools receive grants up to 10.27% of the total cost of purchases made online. Reward Education is absolutely 100% free for users, schools, PTAs and PTOs, as merchants cover the program costs. Users never pay a dime more than they would by directly going to our partner’s sites and completing a transaction.
“There is no reason that every online shopper doesn’t go through Reward Education,” says Dr. Pace, Professor of communication studies at the University of San Diego. “The goal, then, is for consumers to remember to utilize the site before entering the online retailer they desire.”

Reward Education has partnered with over a thousand merchants to provide a supporting mechanism for local schools. On May 13, 2011, The Franklin Mint was assigned our 1000th database entry. Although our list is still growing and much work needs to be done to quickly make a home for all our partners on rewardeducation.org, we are excited to see how much or partners, from large national brands to growing online retailers, care about the communities they serve.
Reward Education is a new concept in educational fundraising. Designed to attract shoppers from the broader education community, it caters to a very large audience of U.S. education supporters. Read More >>
Reward Education released to the broader public its new rewardeducation.org educational fundraising portal on May 10, 2011, just ahead of the expected May revision of Governor Brown's 2011-2012 budget for the State of California. The launch date represented a monumental achievement considering that it was completed on time with limited voluntary resources by those employees and contractors who truly care about kids and the future of education in tough economic times.
Online shopping has been expanding at a rate of about 15-25% annually. Reward Education built the new portal on the traditional shopping mall model, but in a less tangible virtual space. Similar to traditional shopping centers, this virtual mall was built to attract and house the most sought after retailers, but also to provide for variety on a much larger scale than possible in the brick and mortar setting. In essence, Reward Education is a large scale real estate development in virtual space. Much like shopping malls across the country, we collect rent from merchants, but unlike traditional malls, these rents are based on performance.
Also unlike traditional malls, Reward Education donates the vast majority of its collected rents to the "surrounding" schools, where surrounding is defined as the collective of participating members from each school community. This simple process forms our fundraising engine that will benefit millions of students across the nation.
