Stanford, CA - August 15, 2013 - UpToUs www.UpToUs.com, a leader in local advertising and school fundraising has entered into agreements with the three major school foundations in Mountain View and Los Altos, CA. The foundations, Mountain View Educational Foundation, Los Altos Educational Foundation and the MVLA High School Foundation, support over 10,000 families in the two communities. The company will help the foundations to raise money for schools from local businesses. With this new, business model launched by UpToUs, businesses are able to support local schools and promote their products and services in their local community. At the same time, families can find special offers tailored to their needs with merchants where they live.
"Government budgets for education are continuously shrinking and schools are in constant need to find new sources of funding. Traditional school fundraising is focused on raising money from parents through direct solicitation or product sales. UpToUs is connecting local businesses with families and raises money to schools directly from businesses, avoiding any additional financial burden on parents. The partnership with school foundations is a key towards getting businesses and families on board. The initial adoption of the program by local businesses is very encouraging and we are expecting significant growth in the coming months." said Yuval Spector, UpToUs CEO.
