When back-to-school sales rolled out in August, along came stories about teachers reaching into their pockets to pay for classroom supplies. Sure, it speaks to their dedication, but it’s a shame they have to personally pay for supplies to help students learn better.

What if you could help your favorite school get the supplies or equipment it needs? What if it was as easy as setting up a campaign on WoodmenLife.org/Impact?

WoodmenLife’s new online fundraising tool, WoodmenLife Impact℠, can help you lead the charge to benefit schools and other worthy causes in your hometown. It can help you strengthen your community and turn seemingly small efforts into big differences.

Ways to Make an Impact

  • Providing interesting and educational models
  • Improving communication
  • Empowering the ability to conduct advanced research
  • Setting up effective assessments
  • Enabling individualized learning

  • Helping groups work together

As it happens, three of the first 12 WoodmenLife Impact fundraising projects were for purchasing laptops.

Classroom Must-Haves

Of course, there are many other ways fundraising can help schools. Maybe your favorite school could use new playground equipment, your alma mater’s band could use new uniforms or there’s a shortage of decent gear for P.E. class. Schools are already using WoodmenLife Impact to:

  • Upgrade a grade school soccer field
  • Buy new seats for a fourth-grade classroom
