Rally is a social fundraising platform that helps students, teachers and administrators finance education-focused initiatives without relying on diminishing government funds. Examples include:
- Central America native Alvaro Salas rallied 600 supporters to fund over $80K of his college tuition when his acceptance to Cornell University was on the line.
- South Carolina student Derris Felder used rally to raise money for his school supplies this year – taking a huge burden off of his single mother.
- Omaha-based Mary Our Queen (MOQ) Robotics Team used Rally to support teams of 6th-8th graders who design, build and compete with robots to get a head start on essential engineering skills.
