Who We Are
School Deets is a modern funding and communication software solution. Through a school community engagement system, we help the stakeholders in a community to raise money, connect, communicate, and engage so kids thrive!
Heather Wilson is the CEO and Founder of School Deets. She is passionate about education, having served as a public school teacher for 11 years and being a mom of three. After having children, she became a dedicated parent volunteer at her children’s schools. She struggled to keep up with the influx of information coming from multiple school stakeholders through different apps, emails, websites, social media, and paper notes. So, she designed a school community engagement system that consolidated and streamlined communication from everyone within a school community.
She also witnessed the drive that parent volunteers had when it came to recruiting local businesses to sponsor events and initiatives at her children’s school. She searched for the software that would help them to do this even more successfully, but discovered there was no consistent, thorough product in existence. When a single volunteer or committee had their ducks in a row, their technical tools organized, and their manpower at full throttle, the success was quickly realized, but for many schools, this was not the case. Schools with limited volunteer manpower simply could not succeed at fundraising at the same rate.
So, Heather realized there was a way to help schools raise funds by effectively combining fundraising and communication in one place. With the growing amount of digital communication already happening in these communities, schools could continue to communicate about their happenings and sponsors could be seamlessly integrated into their digital channels. Handling this integration in a thoughtful way was easy for this mom, teacher, and business owner.
When schools use School Deets, everybody wins! Schools raise money, parents get streamlined information, businesses see a return on their investment in the community, and kids benefit from extra funds at their school.
