Why Choose Read4Fund$ in 2020?

We have adjusted and upgraded our Read-a-Thon program to help you have a successful fundraiser while staying within the requirements of Covid and social distancing.  Whether your students are in the classroom, all virtual or a combination, you can still reach your fundraising goals with Read4Funds!

Our Read4Funds program will work with social distancing restrictions by:

  • eliminating person-to-person contact
  • eliminating the need to handle cash by providing online donation and communication platform
  • eliminating large crowds or gatherings with virtual kickoffs and announcements and informational emails
  • ability to run entire program from school or home
  • opportunity to raise large sums of money
  • encourages students’ education which community appreciates and will support

Unlike most companies that will provide a one-size-fits-all guide for you to run your own Read-A-Thon, Read4Funds is a local, full service, customizable Read-A-Thon program requiring very little management by the school or parent organization.

We have 2 programs for Fall of 2020 that can be customized with input from the school administration and/or parent organization.  Our expertise and experience make us the best choice to create a fun and successful program for the students and the school. We deliver all materials needed for the program to you, sorted by classroom to eliminate time-consuming efforts that otherwise falls on administrators or parent volunteers.

How it Works


The Read4Funds program starts off with a virtual assembly you can show to your students. Students will be motivated to start their reading campaign to raise money for the school.

Each student receives a packet with a Parent Information Letter and collection materials needed for a successful pledge drive. A dedicated Online Platform is also created for the school to allow students to reach out to family and friends more easily, and to collect donations both locally and nationally.

The second week of the Read4Funds will be filled with fun events to promote reading and fundraising!  Students will wear their t-shirts, read in class, be rewarded for sending out emails and early fundraising and have Virtual Pig Races!

In week three our staff will collect funds and do data entry for prizes.  Week four is Prize week where students will enjoy class and individual prizes earned!

As the students progress through their 2 weeks of reading, we provide reports on online donations and reading totals as well as informational eBlasts for teachers and parents. Then at the end of the campaign, we provide personnel to do all accounting; final reports for individual, class and school donations; and prize delivery, packed by individual and delivered by class.

Prizes (Incentives)


We will work with the school to select individual prizes that fit with your students.  We strive to have great rewards for your students and not junk that will be tossed or lost on the way home from school.  To create a fun and competitive environment, we also arrange fun and interactive school and classroom incentives based on total funds raised. Students love our interactive events ranging from inflatables, to water and foam activities, and carnival games; and with options that are appropriate for school and district safety concerns, and for every one of our Colorado seasons, our incentive programs are the best around!

PTO President of 5th year Run4Fund$ school in Littleton Public Schools

Run4Fund$ was by far our easiest and most profitable fundraiser! All of the kids enjoyed running together and playing on the prizes as a class and they wear their shirts all of the time! Parents like how easy it was for their students to get donations (without selling any trinkets) and that the prizes were fun and not just junk. We blew away our goals every year!
