Fueled by the Shoparoo App, Numerator donates $760,772.45 to US schools

Shoparoo

First off, a BIG THANK YOU to the parents, family members, friends and community members who have helped raise funds for their schools with our Shoparoo school fundraising mobile app.

The new school year is getting started and it’s our turn here at Numerator to welcome the kiddos back with a big smile and an even bigger donation. This year Numerator is writing checks totaling $760,772.45 to participating schools across the country.

“With data breaches at popular websites in the news, consumers are more aware than ever before of data privacy and sharing”, said Numerator SVP of Pilot Solutions Jon Brelig. “It’s no secret that many companies unfairly monetize consumer data without their full understanding or consent.”

“Numerator rewards consumers for their data,” Brelig continued. “Instead of covertly monetizing it, we establish a relationship with our consumers and reward them for opting-in and uploading their data (in the form of receipts).  These relationships have resulted in many receipts uploaded and $4 million given back to schools since Shoparoo’s inception. Schools use the funds to fill in the gap on increasingly tight discretionary budgets, purchasing the equipment and supplies needed to develop the next generation of innovators.”

This year’s top earning school is Mooseheart Child City and School.

Numerator has also drawn four end of year grand sweepstakes winners:

  1. Grand Prize - ($15,000) St. Matthew School, Oak Creek, WI
  2. 1st Place Prize - ($5,000) Mooseheart Child City and School, Mooseheart, IL
  3. 2nd Place Prize - ($2,500) Harry Dewey Fundamental Elementary, Fair Oaks, CA
  4. 3rd Place Prize - ($1,000) Oakville Elementary, Mechanicsville, MD

Shoparoo provides an easy app for schools and PTA/PTO to raise money for a variety of classroom needs. There is never a shortage of crayons, pencils, glue sticks, colored paper, computers, tablets, textbooks and ice cream parties. Any family member, friend or community member can participate just by downloading the app and uploading receipts. Every time a Shoparoo user uploads a photo of an in-store receipt, regardless of where they shop or what they buy, they earn Roo points (cash rewards for their school) or entries into monthly and annual sweepstakes of up to $15,000 for the school of their choice.
