NCSS Partners with Purposity

Newton County School System Partners with Your Tool for Good
Posted on 03/03/2019
Purposity logoNewton County School System is excited to announce
a new partnership with Purposity, an app connecting
users with one-to-one needs in their community. The
partnership aims to fulfill the essential needs of the
students enrolled in Newton County Schools.

If you knew a kid down the street had a simple need –
say she needed sneakers for school – chances are
you’d help, right? But, it’s hard to know the needs of
real people in your community because there’s never
been a way to connect people who could really use
help with people who want to offer it. 

Enter a new app hitting Newton County: Purposity. Its
name comes from purpose + generosity, and it’s
designed to connect the individual needs of people near you with neighbors, like you.

The vision for Purposity is to connect people to doing good the way Facebook
connects us to friends and Google connects us to information. And, inspire the next
generation to live generously. 

“We live in an age when we can make a doctor’s appointment right from our phone,”
said founder Blake Canterbury, adding, “but we have no way of knowing if the family
down the street has food on its table or if their children have shoes on their feet.”
Purposity looks to bridge that gap locally. 

“I am excited to add Purposity to our toolbox of support for our Newton County
School System students,” said Samantha Fuhrey, superintendent of Newton County
Schools. “Often, teachers and staff go into their own pockets to help fill the needs of
our students; with Purposity, the entire community and beyond can help. I am thrilled
 to get started with Purposity and look forward to the great things we can accomplish
 with the support of our community-near and far!”

Dubbed Your Tool for Good, the Purposity app sends a weekly notification to users
with a need in their area. It also features user profiles, which track donors’ giving and
allows them to see their impact. The company’s vision takes aim at uniting neighbors
and communities around purpose by easily connecting them with opportunities for
generosity.

“We wanted to create a way for communities to connect and unite in a meaningful
way,” stated Blake Canterbury, founder and CEO. “Our belief is that if you knew your
neighbor needed help, you’d help,” he added about the origins of the idea.

Those who sign up receive an alert with a link to a story of an individual in need and
can then choose to meet that need right on their phone. The requested item is in
hands of the organization in just a few days. It takes one text, under two minutes, and
a few clicks to make a difference for a fellow community member. 

To join the movement in Newton County, visit www.Purposity.com or download the
app from the App Store or Google Play.
