May 12, 2011

Ann Arbor, MI (May 12, 2011) –– The Michigan PTSA (MPTSA) today announced the launch of their newest program benefit in support of their member organizations. will provide MPTSA members with a simple, no-cost fundraising program that will generate continual revenue in support of local school programs and initiatives.

The MPTSA program provides significant, sustainable monthly income for PTA units while benefiting supporters at the same time. Simple to set-up and maintain, PTA units simply enroll in the program, create a custom-branded Internet shopping portal, and share their unique member I.D. with their supporters. When supporters log in and shop through the Internet Mega Mall, every purchase they make generates contributions for their local PTA unit. In addition to the contributions generated, supporters receive exclusive offers and savings at over 600 online retailers, encouraging them to conduct all of their online shopping through, creating a continual stream of revenue to support PTA programs.

Launched at the recent MPTSA Annual Convention, held May 2-4, 2008, in Midland, MI, this innovative, new program was well received. Over 50 MPTSA member organizations enrolled in the program at the convention, with many more expected to sign on later this month.

“We’re thrilled to offer this simple and effective new fundraising tool to our membership,” says Debbie Squires, MPTSA President. “We know how difficult fundraising is in today’s economy. not only helps our members generate much needed funds, but it also provides significant savings to local families in return for their support.”
