About MightyNest for Schools
Our flagship product, the MightyFix, is the most effective tool for fundraising with MightyNest. For $11/month parents will receive one amazing product each month that helps their family live healthier and greener while earning $1 a month for you school. The product is always worth more than $11 retail, ships free and you get free shipping on anything else you add to your box of our over 2,000 products each month when you ship them with your MightyFix. This is prominently featured on your school page.
When members of your school community become a member at MightyNest.com, we will donate to your school every month they receive a member shipment. Members of your school community can choose from any of our popular memberships including the MightyFix, MightyBody, Moon Pack, and Build Your Own Box. Anyone who joins with an annual MightyFix membership can also earn extra for your school. All Members will receive free shipping (contiguous 48 US only) and up to 30% off hundreds of member specials - hand-picked household essentials that are better for their health and the planet. Families love joining MightyNest for the fun subscription options as well as access to products for active, healthy families including kitchen items, lunch gear, toys, baby products, cleaning supplies and personal care products at a great value
Each month you receive a membership box, your school will earn $1. If you choose to pause or stop your membership your school will stop earning, but you can resume at any time and your membership will begin giving back to your school automatically.
MightyNest products and content are geared to parents of preschool through elementary students. We're open to working with any interested school. Your organization will need to be a qualifying 501(c)(3) or similar organization to receive our donation. If your school doesn't show up when searching based on your zip, visit the add school page and our team can setup your school.
We currently only support schools in the United States.
You can get the ball rolling when you participate, share with friends, share with your PTA or raise funds by starting a MightyNest membership. If you are already a member and supporting a school, your donations will happen automatically each month. If your school fundraiser page has not been claimed yet, share it with a PTA/PTO or School Leader at your school to be sure your school gets activated this school year so that your fundraiser will continue!
PTA/PTO or School Leader:
The fundraiser must be led by a school director or a PTA/PTO leader or fundraising leader. If this sounds like you, visit your school's Mighty School page and look for the button to claim your page and get started. If someone has already claimed your school, you can contact them to add you as a School Leader. This will give you access to the School Leader section. If you no longer are in touch with the current leader listed in the School Leaders section, please contact us, and we will add you to the leader list after validating your role at the school.
As a school supporter, the first step is to make sure your school claims its page and activates the fundraiser. Someone at your school who can take charge of the fundraiser like a PTA leader, committee leader, or school employee in charge of fundraising outreach is usually the best person. If you visit your school's fundraising page, there is an easy to forward email we can send you that contains all the important information for the school. You can also simply send them a link to the page, and they can claim it in a couple of minutes. The only information the leader needs to claim the page is the payment details for what should appear on the donation check and the Tax EIN for the organization.
Once your school fundraiser is activated, you can tell friends, family and other parents at your school about MightyNest for Schools by sharing your school's fundraising page. There are easy to use Invite buttons on the page that will let you email contacts directly or send yourself an email that you can edit and forward to your address book.
You can also invite friends via Facebook to join your school's page.
School leaders can use the MightyNest for Schools banners and flyers from our resources page to promote the program online or offline. Contact [email protected] if you'd like more ideas or other materials to help get others involved.
School supporters are not limited to current attendees of a school. Parents, grandparents, school alumni, friends, and neighbors can all choose to support your school.
You can see a confirmation that your order was recorded as supporting your school on your digital order receipt. At the bottom of the order confirmation you received via email, you should see a small section confirming the name of the school your order supported. Additionally, if you visit your account page and go to your order history, you will see the same confirmation at the bottom of any individual order that supported your school. Please note that while your membership continues to support your school every month, individual orders not associated with your membership do not add an additional donation to the school, so they will not display the donation confrimation section.

Important Program Requirements and Dates
Yes, we require schools to activate their fundraiser each year. In order to run a successful fundraiser, schools need to have an active leader or PTA member at the school. By reactivating the fundraiser each year, the correct PTA member or school leader can establish their control over the page, provide updated contact information, and update the critical details required for the payment (Tax EIN, Check Payable information). In this way, our support team can also focus on the schools actively participating. Schools can activate later in the year in order to run a drive, but each school must reactivate and update payment details to continue earn donations. Schools should reactivate prior to October 15th to prevent a gap in earnings.
If you school is not claimed by October 15th, the fundraiser will be deactivated. We are working on alternative fundraisers so that your membership at MightyNest can continue to give back to worthy causes. As we move to our new MightyNest for Schools format in August 2018, any donations earned from June 1st - August 15th will be kept under the original program. Donations earned from August 15th forward will not be retained if the school does not activate by October 15th. All schools activated by October 15th will retain any donations earned from August 15th forward.
- The school fundraising period runs from June 1st to May 31st of the following year. Schools must claim and activate their fundraiser each year by October 15th, supplying updated payment details for the year.
- Payout checks will be processed in the month of June and should arrive in July or early August.
- Schools must earn $100 in the fundraising period ending May 31st in order to receive a payout check. Balances do not transfer into future fundraising periods.
Schools must earn $100 in the course of the school year (June 1st to May 31st of the following year) in order to receive a payout check. Earnings do not roll over into the next year, so the school must reach $100 during the school year in order to receive a check.
No, earnings do not roll over into the next year. The school must reach $100 during the school year in order to receive a check. Earnings reset to zero each year on June 1st. The $100 minimum is a low enough level that almost any school that runs a fundraising drive will be able to reach it with our membership based programs. If you are worried that your school will not reach the minimum, please contact us for ideas on how to promote your fundraiser.
