KulaCrate Launches Platform To Help Teachers Receive Classroom Supplies Year-Round

Posted: December 9, 2019

New platform provides an easy-to-use online crowdfunding solution that reduces the personal burden on teachers of outfitting their classrooms with necessary supplies.

BOCA RATON, Fla. — December 10, 2019 - KulaCrate today announces the launch of its new social crowdfunding platform, connecting teachers to the school supplies and resources they need.

KulaCrate is creating a streamlined way for teachers to keep their classrooms fully stocked all year at potentially no personal cost to them while making it convenient and affordable for parents and others to help.  On average, a teacher will spend $740 or more on outfitting and supplying their classroom each year. KulaCrate has created a convenient platform for parents and others to help out. 

With the KulaCrate platform, teachers will be able to register their classrooms for free and easily share with parents and local businesses through email and social media.  Parents, family members, and others can use the platform to make a one-time donation toward supplies for that teacher's classroom. Their contributions will fund teacher-selected classroom supplies, décor, and downloadable curriculum all year long.  The grade-appropriate 'Crates' are delivered every month, right to the teacher's classroom.

KulaCrate is making everything easier for everyone. Parents are already purchasing supplies for their children's classrooms and are spending time and money shopping and purchasing items that may not be the ones needed.  Some teachers receive supplies early in the school year but then see supplies completely depleted as the year progresses.  

The new KulaCrate platform:

  1. Reduces the need for teachers to pay out-of-pocket for classroom supplies.
  2. Provides a fresh stock of supplies, consistently, every month during the school year.
  3. Removes the need for shopping time and effort by both teachers and parents.

"As the national conversation continues about how valuable our teachers are in the development of our children, and the unmatched salaries their noble position provides, a solution to help subsidize their out-of-pocket expenses was well overdue," said Vaughan Dugan, Co-founder, and CEO.  

The KulaCrate platform is now live and officially in beta, allowing registrations to the secure platform. During this time, early adopters' feedback will help shape the national release in 2020. The Company has partnered with veteran marketing and technology agency, SilverTech, based out of Manchester, New Hampshire.
