OF OUR PROCEEDS GO BACK TO LOCAL SCHOOLS!
You Save, Schools Earn!
How does money go back to my school?
Of every deal that is purchased, Schoolit donates 100% of our proceeds back to the school linked with that specific coupon. At the end of each month, we then write a check to the schools that are raising money through our website. Once a school receives a Schoolit check, they can use it to support whichever programs they see fit!
How do I ensure that the money goes to the school I want it to?
When you visit your school’s page, the businesses that are associated with your school will be listed on that page. When you buy a coupon, make sure you buy directly from your school’s deal page so that you’re buying a coupon for your school. Our location-based technology automatically places deals in your school’s neighborhood on to your school’s deal page.
How can Schoolit help my school's fundraising?
Schoolit is effective because it’s easy. We provide schools with year-round, passive income, and give everyone who wants to get involved an easy way to participate.
Can I use my smart phone to buy a coupon?
Yea! We're on it - check out Schoolit's iPhone application!
What is the difference between Community deals and Coast to Coast deals?
Community Deals are coupons created by local merchants, and these merchants give a higher percentage back to local schools. Coast to Coast deals are discounts from our nation's largest retailers and are usually great discounts for shoppers, but schools earn a lower percentage on these deals.
How can I help local businesses sign up to support my school through Schoolit?
Think and act locally. Speak to the owners of businesses where you shop the most - encourage them to review Schoolit’s website and sign-up online!
How do I know if a certain business is already associated with Schoolit?
You can search for a business on www.justschoolit.com.
Can I buy Schoolit deals directly in stores?
How much will it cost for our school to participate?
Nothing, Schoolit is FREE! And we want to help schools at no cost.
How can I participate in Schoolit?
Getting involved in Schoolit is easy, and you can do it on your schedule, when you have free time. You can participate by purchasing a deal for your school on our website and promoting our program to local schools and merchants in your area. If you’re a merchant, you can sign up your business by either visiting Schoolit's Merchant Registration page. If you have more questions, please Contact Us.
Why should I use Schoolit instead of donating to publish schools directly?
Schoolit is a unique program that benefits schools, neighbors, and local businesses. When you use Schoolit, you support local companies, and unite a community of people working together to give schools and students the proper tools and support they need to succeed.
When I buy a coupon through Schoolit, is it tax deductible?
When you buy coupons from Schoolit, they are not tax deductible. We do, however, have a Donate Directly tab on our website, and when you use this feature to make a direct donation to a school, these donations are tax deductible. Schoolit’s Marketplace functions similarly - if you donate an item to your school's marketplace and that item is sold, then the seller can deduct 100% of that sale from their taxes.
Is Schoolit a non-profit?
Well, we should be! We donate 100% of our proceeds from all transactions on our site back to local schools, but we're not a non-profit - Schoolit raises money through advertising to keep our service free for our schools, users and merchants.
*proceeds are net of 4% for processing fees associated with checks and credit cards.
