From the CEO
Hard to believe the new school year is only weeks away. Summer goes by far too fast.
This summer, ClassWallet has continued its quest to meet the demands of our growing customer base. We are excited to announce two powerful strategic partnerships with GoFundMe and Education Brands to solve school districts’ crowdfunding and integration challenges. And our efforts are being recognized – our innovative technology was given an award by a leading financial technology publication. Lastly, more school districts from California, Utah and Alabama have adopted our solution to reduce paper and administrative overhead costs.
ClassWallet Wins PayBefore AwardPayBefore, an industry leading magazine for financial technology, announced winners for its annual campaign recognizing the best companies, programs, technologies and people in the world of prepaid, retail and loyalty, and payments technology. ClassWallet was a winner for the Judges’ Choice category. We are honored to see our innovative use of virtual wallet technology for the education space get this type of recognition from industry thought leadership.
ClassWallet and GoFundMe Join Forces for Crowdfunding AccountabilityTeachers often resort to crowdfunding platforms to make up for classroom deficiencies. The problem is that projects, donations and purchases occur outside the visibility of school and district administration. ClassWallet has partnered with GoFundMe, the country’s leading crowdfunding platform, to solve this problem. The partnership allows administration to view and approve projects before they go live on GoFundMe and gives administration detailed reporting on donations and purchases.

Utah and Alabama Continue Their Appreciation for ClassWalletSatsuma City School District and Park City School District became the 4th district in Alabama and the 3rd district in Utah, respectively to sign with ClassWallet.
