What is Raise Craze?
Raise Craze is a fundraising program to teach our kids kindness and empathy by paying it forward. It is a meaningful, interactive fundraiser where students collect donations online via a secure, custom website then show their appreciation by serving others and completing random acts of kindness. In other words, students spend time serving, not selling! Raise Craze is funding through kindness. Watch this video to see how it works:
How to get started:
1. Register and create a profile for each student.
2. Choose 3 acts of kindness or other ways you plan to be kind.
3. Enter email addresses of friends and family to share your child’s acts of kindness, and give them an opportunity to donate to the school.
Get CRAZE-Y!!! Take pictures. Check off acts of kindness. Have fun!
School wide Rewards!
With kindness, we can all make a difference. Funds donated to our PTA directly impact students through classroom funding, library and innovation lab improvements, school improvement projects, and programs that connect and engage our community of students and families.

Frequently asked questions:
Q: Will donations still go to the school if my child doesn’t complete their acts of kindness (AOK)?
A: Of course. All donations will be processed through Raise Craze whether or not your child completes their acts of kindness. However, we hope they’ll be inspired to spread kindness anyway.
Q: Can I just donate money, and not sign up my child for the website?
A: Yes, of course. We always accept donations through PayPal, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note your child’s name and class when making a donation for our records.
Q: Do I have to donate money?
A: Of course not. All donations are voluntary. In order to accumulate rewards, you child must still create their own page on the Raise Craze website, and complete the designated boxes for prizes. We encourage you to enter as many friends and families’ email addresses as possible, to optimize the likelihood of receiving donations on your child’s behalf.
Q: Can we combine our children’s donations to be eligible for bigger prizes?
A: Unfortunately, no. All donations to a child’s page will count towards their goals, and may not be combined with their siblings.
