Mississippi School Earns Portable Interactive Whiteboard Technology to Supplement Classroom Learning Activities

ERIE, Pa. (June 18, 2013)— FundingFactory, the largest recycling fundraiser, in partnership with Learning Resources®, a leading global manufacturer of educational products, helped one Mississippi school earn leading classroom technology through the Set a Goal, Win a now!Board™ giveaway.

FundingFactory participants who set a fundraising goal and created a public webpage at FundingFactory.com between Sept. 1, 2012 and Oct. 31, 2012 were automatically entered to win now!Board Portable Interactive Whiteboard Technology. In addition, participants who met or exceeded their fundraising goal by May 31, 2013, were given a second entry to double their chances of winning.

Of the more than 364 FundingFactory participants who set a fundraising goal during the promotional period, and 38 participants who met or exceeded their goal, FundingFactory and Learning Resources are happy to announce that, through a random drawing of qualified participants, the Immanuel Christian School Parent Teacher Organization of Steens, Miss., is the now!Board winner. The PTO raised $535.48, exceeding its original goal of $500.

“This is my first year running FundingFactory at the school, so to begin by winning the now!Board has been the icing on the cake,” said Deborah Campbell, former Immanuel Christian teacher and current PTO member. “I am a firm believer in recycling anything and everything we can, and FundingFactory is important to our society because it provides an opportunity to teach our children about recycling and its greater significance. It’s great that through this program we can put something back into our school. The now!Board will be used as part of the school’s Mobile Unit, where teachers can rent tech equipment for their classrooms.”

FundingFactory is a 100 percent free fundraising by recycling program for schools and nonprofit organizations. Participants exchange used inkjet and toner printer cartridges, cell phones, and small electronics for cash or points redeemable for new technology and other products through FundingFactory’s online Rewards Catalog. now!Board is an easy-to-use, portable whiteboard technology that works with any projector and computer on any flat surface.

Schools, nonprofit organizations, churches, and other groups can register for free at www.fundingfactory.com/register. To learn more about the positive impact of fundraising by recycling, visit Facebook.com/FundingFactory and YouTube.com/FundingFactory.
