What customers are saying who switched from Vertical Raise to Schoolfundr

"I'm thrilled that my teams are now with Schoolfundr. Our boy's basketball team raised just under $8,000 and retained $7,650. Last year, that same program raised $6,750 with another company, but $2,250 was deducted, leaving only $5,400. I'm delighted to work with a company that not only allows us to keep all the funds we raise but also assures donors that their contributions go directly toward the cause. Thank you, Schoolfundr!”
