Provides a way for Berkeley public school teachers to fund classroom projects.
Every year, the schools fund would review hundreds of grant applications by hand in a very time consuming process. Grants would then only be awarded once a year for teachers, even though the teachers needed the funds throughout the year.
Blueprint was able to work with the Schools Fund to create Friends and Family, a local crowdfunding platform for Berkeley School District teachers to utilize. With this new platform, teachers have been able to raise almost $30,000 thus far.
