HQSoftware was tasked with developing a website which allows, and facilitates integration with multiple partners.
Development of a website that would contain a database of almost 30,000 schools, lists shopping partners and provides integration between the two.
- When supporters make online purchases with website’s partners, a portion of each sale is allocated to the supported school.
- All for Schools is free to use — for schools as well as school families, friends, and supporters.
- AFS handles all of the reporting and sends each school a check every 90 days.

API for third-party integration was made with: Amazon, Groupon, Macys, Best Buy, Walmart, Nordstrom, etc. Social integration—an integral part of the project—was made with: Twitter, Facebook, Google plus, and Pinterest.
