Alternative to Booster-Thon for Jog-a-thon Fundraising


My father warned me about being pennywise and pound foolish.  Yes, an old cliche but one that is fitting to making a decision about fundraising software for your school jogathon.

There are plenty of software options to choose from to support your jogathon. Most take huge fees from your association or school either in terms of software fees, 5-7%, or event fees, 30-40% of revenue. SWEET! by Blue Sky Collaborative offers an alternative to these high fee options.

Our license fee pricing option is a straightforward cost so you know exactly what the cost is for your school association. On average, our software expense ratio is between 2-4% of your fundraising. A far lower cost than providers charging software and/or event fees.

In addition to pricing transparency, SWEET! by Blue Sky provides you all the needed peer to peer fundraising features to achieve your fundraising goals. Your student, classroom, staff, and school needs will be met to make you successful.  A few feature examples are:

  • User-friendly forms that are 100% configurable to your needs.
  • Classroom and student fundraising pages.
  • Communication tools to email and text your fundraising network.
  • Branding and design that is extension of your school website.
  • Downloadable reports to make it easy to track and share results.


We create our SWEET! peer-to-peer fundraising sites in collaboration with a school association to meet their unique needs for the jogathon.  With SWEET! our clients have the ability to start simple and craft their online fundraising efforts over time their way.  Whether it is early days for your campaign, a campaign ready to grow to the next level or a multi-event/location campaign we have a software solution to meet your needs.
