E-Flyers (Peachjar)

Sign Up for E-Flyer Notifications

Kennewick School District offers a fee-based e-flyer service called Peachjar to local non-profit organizations to distribute information about educational, recreational and social opportunities for the children we serve. Free accounts may be setup by local non-profit organizations if they meet Peachjar's Community Free Flyer Program requirements.

E-flyers are sent to all parents and guardians of students in the Kennewick School District unless they have opted out of this communication. School staff will not accept flyers, posters, brochures or digital materials for distribution. All flyer requests are required to be approved by the district and submitted through the non-profit organization's individual Peachjar account.

Community Free Flyer Guidelines (updated: Oct. 2021)

Peachjar's Community Free Flyer Program covers the fees for one Community Free flyer per 28 days for organizations promoting a charitable free program, service, or resource where children are the direct beneficiary. 

All flyers submitted for free distribution will be reviewed by Peachjar for verification of eligibility and must comply with the following requirements:

  • Your charitable program, service, or resource directly benefits children and does not require participants to qualify, has no enticement for future fee-based programs, and does not serve the purpose of fundraising, collecting donations, or allowing for the purchase of products or services. 
  • Your organization is not nationally recognized and physically resides within the boundaries of the school district you wish to distribute to. 
  • Your organization is not receiving fees or revenue from vendors participating in the event. 

Submissions are limited to one flyer distribution to one school district every 28 days. If you wish to distribute to more than one school district or more frequently than every 28 days, you may choose to distribute a standard flyer, subject to Peachjar's fees. Peachjar reserves the right to determine final eligibility.
