CatchTomorrow.com is the unique philanthropic project and vision of founder and CEO Craig Romero. Romero has enlisted a talented team of technology, marketing and public relations experts who are passionate about supporting education in America, while making it fun and easy! CatchTomorrow’s parent company, Search Engine Corp, based in Santa Fe, New Mexico brings together the distinct worlds of technology (search engine, portal and customized home page) and generosity
Craig Romero believes that by building a new type of search engine for Internet users, he can build a new source of funding for public education. Each quarter, CatchTomorrow donates 50 percent of its gross revenue to local schools, allocating the money to individual school districts in relation to the number of visitors that each school district receives. Users choose their state during their first visit to the www.catchtomorrow.com home page and then they will select a school district. From this point, 50% of all activity on each school district’s search page will be donated to that school system every quarter.
CatchTomorrow is leading the way as a next next-generation search engine—a site which utilizes Web 2.0 features and technology not found in other major search engines like Google and Yahoo!. These Web 2.0 features allow users to create his or her own customized CatchTomorrow home page by selecting from several informational modules, many of which offer more targeted search capability, including:
While these personalized home pages are the most visible part of the site, CatchTomorrow’s anticipated impact on local schools is what excites communities across the United States.
“Many schools have been forced to cut back on arts, music and other instructional areas. They need funds to continue these programs,” Romero said. “Rather than raising property taxes, we can use funds generated from CatchTomorrow to augment public school funding.”
“CatchTomorrow is 100 percent focused on education,” Romero affirms, “This is a way for Americans to give dollars to education without even pulling out their wallets.”
