TROY, Mich., Mar. 26, 2012 - Pay Anywhere is proud to continue its initiatives of supporting education by donating tablets to every student at Cranbrook’s Brookside Lower School. This donation is in support of Cranbrook School’s aim to inspire today’s youth with tomorrow’s technology.

Both Pay Anywhere and Cranbrook Schools have strong traditions of community building in the Metro-Detroit area year after year. This year marks the 31st year of Cranbrook’s Kaleidoscope fundraiser, which is hosted by Cranbrook parents but made possible from the support of friends, family, and local businesses like Pay Anywhere.

“Pay Anywhere is proud to support Cranbrook’s dedication to academic achievement with a donation of tablets for every Brookside student. We believe tablet use will enrich the educational opportunities of students by exposing them to today’s technology and providing access to information at their fingertips,” said Pay Anywhere CEO Marc Gardner.

Along with the donation of tablets to Brookside, Gardner and the Pay Anywhere team showed support at the Kaleidoscope fundraiser that took place on March 10 by providing the mobile payment solution in place of traditional countertop credit card terminals. By using Pay Anywhere, Cranbrook and the Kaleidoscope team were able to easily accept donations via credit card and help make the event a success.

"The use of Pay Anywhere in place of a traditional countertop terminal streamlined the process of accepting credit card donations. With Pay Anywhere's support, Brookside was able to raise more money than we had anticipated at this year's fundraiser,” said Elyse Foltyn, Cranbrook Kaleidoscope Co-Chair. “We are grateful for Pay Anywhere's dedication and generosity to Brookside with its donation of tablets for every student.”

Pay Anywhere is an ideal mobile payment processing choice for charity and fundraising organizations because of its affordability and usability. Pay Anywhere is a free app and free credit card reader with pay-as-you-go pricing and no additional fees that allows charities the flexibility to accept donations and provide donors with receipts for record-keeping purposes.
