New Jersey Education Foundation Partnership (NJEFP) to Use New Technology Platform Edbacker for Statewide Fundraising


NJEFP collaboration with Edbacker will support 50 educational foundations across New Jersey

Red Bank, NJ (PRWEB) May 04, 2016

Edbacker, a new online platform designed to connect school districts with donors, announced a new partnership with the New Jersey Education Foundation Partnership (NJEFP) to support 50 education foundations that fund educational programs for their respective school districts. The NJEFP announcement marks the second state-level organization to use the Edbacker platform and will help NJEFP support the 1.4 million K-12 public education students across the State of Jersey.

Through the partnership, each of NJEFP's education foundations will now have unlimited access to the Edbacker online platform, allowing them to easily create educational fundraising campaigns, manage donor databases, track payments in real time, run instant reports, and communicate with donors via personalized templates. An overarching, aggregate Edbacker account means state level staff and volunteers will be able to prioritize and identify every fundraising goal of each education foundation at a glance, saving already limited time and resources.

"Local education foundations in New Jersey are typically run by volunteers - and we are really looking forward to having access to one platform where everyone can easily access the same information," said NJEFP Executive Director Megan Dzwonkowski. "Whether it's managing our donor databases, learning about each other's best practices, using new tools to maximize our fundraising efforts and communicating with donors, we've simply have never had access to this info at our fingertips before. The partnership with Edbacker will make a great impact on our educational fundraising campaigns in arts, music, innovative technology and special projects and help us expand our work beyond the 50 school districts we serve in New Jersey."

Designed by technology entrepreneurs and educational advocates, Edbacker allows any entity – whether it be schools, parents, PTAs, districts, foundations, nonprofit organizations, or corporations – to create and support educational funding campaigns. As public schools face budget crises and continued lack of resources, the Edbacker platform aims to bring the efficiency and reach of technology to the previously ignored arena of public education fundraising.

"Edbacker and the the New Jersey Education Foundation Partnership have very similar goals: to help solve the educational funding gap facing our nation's schools, especially at the K-12 level," said Edbacker CEO Gary Hensley. "We're extremely confident that Edbacker can help NJEFP raise even more funds for schools in New Jersey, and we're thrilled they chose us to embark on this journey with them."
