Georgia PTAs Embrace Cause Commerce
Atlanta, GA December 8, 2015

The Georgia State PTA is boosting Schools fundraising efforts by partnering with the CauseNetwork, Inc. to provide every PTA in the state of Georgia a free, branded online marketplace and mobile app. This partnership capitalizes on consumers’ shift toward “shopping for a cause”, coupled with the widespread use of mobile devices for online purchases, which are expected to reach $100 million in 2015.
CauseNetwork will create a customized shopping website for every interested PTA in Georgia for their members to make online purchases from over 1,000 retailers that donate up to 10% of every purchase. The same ability to shop for their cause is enabled through each PTA’s customized mobile app, which also includes messaging for PTAs to stay in touch with their members. The entire platform is provided at no cost to the PTAs that enroll.
Georgia State PTA President, Tyler Barr states, “The education landscape changes daily, and if you blink you will miss a new policy, technology or law that can drastically affect the future for your child. Finding new ways to raise funds for schools is critical in these difficult economic times, and CauseNetwork is helping us do that.”
“We work to give PTAs a ways to do more for their schools, without having to ask members to spend more. Through our platform, PTA members simply redirect their online shopping through their school PTA CauseNetwork website or mobile app. Each purchase yields a donation back to the PTA so parents can contribute while getting the same great prices from the biggest retail brands like Amazon, Target, WalMart and Best Buy.” said Clay Buckley, President of CauseNetwork.
