On March 9, Lawson Software launched www.ImpactSchools.org, an online giving tool that allows donors to provide direct funding to the elementary or secondary school of their choice within a participating district. This tool allows school advocates to choose to donate to a specific program within each school, such as music, computers, sports, or field trips. In total, 97 percent of every tax-deductible donation goes directly to the school and program of choice. St. Paul Public Schools is the first district, with 68 participating schools, to benefit from this program. In the coming year, St. Paul-based Lawson plans to roll out ImpactSchools.org to districts across the nation. To get more information or to sign up, send an eMail to the address listed below.
