Learn 6 must-do tips for running reading fundraisers from school librarians with Metro Nashville Public Schools and Lamar Consolidated Independent School District. Their success using Beanstack, the #1 reading challenge software and app for librarians, has provided a roadmap for the national "Read to Raise" challenge to kick off for 10 days this fall.

During this webcast, Beanstack's product manager will also share a behind-the-scenes look at the design of the reading fundraising system, and the company's co-founder will announce the details behind the Read to Raise Challenge. Think "Fitbit for Reading" meets "GoFundMe" —with all the tools you need to build your school's culture of reading while raising money within the constraints caused by COVID.

90% of the donations from the Beanstack reading fundraising system will go to your school or library. Beanstack will also provide your school with a national summer reading challenge (sponsored by Thorndike Press and Mark Cuban), winter reading challenge, and your school's own customized reading challenges. The schools that gain the most participation during Read to Raise will receive up to an additional $5K donation.
