Education Bucks is a non-profit startup company seeking donations to help fund the development of EBucks. EBucks will be a mobile and web-based app that will help students PK -12th grade, have the resources they need to thrive in school. The organization believes that with the use of this gifting platform, families will be able to rapidly and effectively pool resources that will promote their children’s achievements in school and beyond.
Through the use of a person-2-person (P2P) payment platform, the goal is to help low-income families be able to comfortably afford expenses for basic academic and extracurricular pursuits. EBucks will enable parents to create giving circles with family members and friends, to help pay for academic purchases like - school supplies, field trips, summer camps, and more.
Khadija Harris, Founder of Education Bucks, realized as a child that her family had to choose between paying for utility bills or for extracurricular activities. As she raises her own children today, Ms. Harris has been faced with the same challenges. She observed that her friends and family would graciously buy gifts for birthdays and holidays, and thought of the impact it would make if those gifts were used to contribute to her children’s educational goals.
Khadija and her team would like to thank you in advance for planting a seed. Your donation will help build App/Web Prototype and Testing, Continual Market Research, Grant Writer/Research/Application Fees taking us steps closer to making it possible for children globally to thrive in education.
