A one-stop shop for everything schools and students need

Stop using outdated, time-consuming, and expensive methods to order school supplies and apparel. 

Grad Giveback offers a modern solution that delivers compounding benefits.

Grad Giveback’s Process

  • We provide all of the resources that describe how to order. You simply decide how to distribute to students.
  • Students and parents order and pay using your school’s custom portal—no school costs, paper forms, wrong items or pin money exposure.
  • We send regular email reminders for students to order and even provide you with extra back-to-school kits for students who missed the ordering deadline or for hardship cases.
  • Use your Giveback check and admin portal to furnish your district with select classroom supplies, facility solutions and more, at a sharp discount—no purchase order, RFP, or transactions required.
  • Alternatively, use our Budget Retention Tool to equip your district with any items in our marketplace with consistent and fair pricing to supplement your Giveback; A new source of revenue, issued with complete spending autonomy.

Traditional Ordering Process

  • Spend time requesting a quote for potential fees and upfront school costs.
  • Use inefficient paper-based process to collect orders, payment, check for errors and omissions or hold order box leaving school vulnerable to pin money exposure. 
  • Students shopping retail arrive on the 1st day of class with wrong items - notebooks, unsafe markers and glue.
  • Purchasers tasked with getting the most bang for your buck research products, suppliers, and rates through multiple channels.
  • Institute RFP process creating additional productivity waste along with the time spent negotiating and uncovering hidden pricing.
  • Once decisions have been finalized, coordinate complex purchase order and accounting inputs.
  • Minimal to $0 in revenues or options to assist in retaining your back-to-school budget.
  • Spend time working with your vendor to accommodate students who forgot to order or ordered too late, resulting in consignment products and overage return responsibilities.
