Kindo supports schools to make the most of existing funding and create more funds for learning, through efficiencies in administration, online systems that get funds in more quickly, and effective, low-effort fundraising options.
Families are finding it more difficult to get to the school office at 8.30am and 3pm. Older students do not need to spend their time queuing. Kindo enables online payment, when it suits, where it suits and using the payment method that suits… without causing headaches in the office.
Kindo reduces foot traffic in the office and gives caregivers the flexibility to transact with your school at any time. Payment requests and online school shopping in one. Kindo collates individual payments and reports with a single bank deposit and an excellent audit trail, that removes administration, leaving staff to focus on student welfare, not bank statements.
The user-friendly Kindo icons make it quick and easy for parents to view trips, fundraising events, sports subscriptions and more at a glance. They can pay off school payment requests in part and see what’s outstanding at all times. A dedicated Community Shop offers a reduced set of items, relevant to wider community, for easy ticket sales and other events or item sales.
Integrating with Donation Tax Rebate specialists, Supergenerous, creates a no-admin system for your families to gift and re-gift their donation rebates to the school generating a significant passive income stream.
We know it’s hard to get volunteers these days, that’s why more schools are turning to Kindo to run their fundraising initiatives. Online orders & payments takes the hard work out of fundraisers, requiring less onsite time.
