ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Joshua Price, president of Lobo Little League, usually starts pushing registration at the beginning of the year – mainly by passing out flyers at Albuquerque Public Schools. But a shift to digital flyers is leaving his nonprofit with some checkbook woes.
While APS used to allow the distribution of paper flyers, it has moved to digital platform Peachjar to disperse information. The district said Peachjar is less cumbersome and more eco-friendly.
But Price is finding it more expensive. He said the fees to distribute the flyers digitally is expected to cost Lobo Little League about $700 for 15 schools – a hefty price tag for a baseball organization that runs on donations.
Price reached out to APS but district staff told him the cost to distribute digital flyers should be comparable to the cost of printing color flyers, suggesting he pare down his distribution.
