How to Earn Money for Your Classroom This Black Friday Weekend

Have you explored ClassTagRewards yet? It’s an amazing opportunity to get help with your classroom expenses. Class members generate cash-back donations, allocated to your classroom, from their online shopping. So, with Black Friday mayhem upon us, what better time to launch it in your classroom?

A once a year opportunity to easily raise funds for your classroom

Why get involved?

It’s about time you stop going out of pocket on essential school supplies! Research uncovered that teachers spend as much as $500 annually on essential classroom materials. Wanting what’s best for your students is admirable but your personal budget shouldn’t suffer either!

No extra cost

One reason while teachers go out of pocket is feeling uncomfortable about asking parents to donate. You’re understandably concerned about low-income families and single parents who struggle and might be feeling under pressure. This unique fundraising opportunity is absolutely free for parents.

Ready to start generating funds for your classroom at no extra cost? Take action now:

Step 1 – Share the opportunity and engage parents

The best way to let parents know about this upcoming opportunity is by sending an announcement.

You can simply copy and paste this message:

Dear parents, as you might now, we can now take advantage of ClassTag Rewards to generate classroom funds at no extra cost to you. Upcoming Black Friday weekend is an amazing opportunity to get involved. With your support, we’ll be able to purchase essential supplies and organize fun activities for our students.

To take part, you simply need to remember to click on a link located in the Rewards tab when doing your online shopping on Amazon, Walmart, Target and other major websites. For every $1 you spend, we can receive up to 3% cash-back. Every little helps and it doesn’t cost anything to participate. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Happy Thanksgiving!

You can also download a Black Friday banner to add to your message.

Send an announcement to parents now!

Step 2 – Add payee details to collect your payments

Add your payee details in your Classroom Settings and choose to receive funds by PayPal or check. You will be able to collect your next payment as early as January!

P.S. If you have any questions about the program, get in touch with us at – always happy to help.
