The PTA participates in a number of programs that donate directly to the PTA, without you having to spend an extra dime. These “fundraisers” are very easy to participate in, of no extra cost to you, and can help fund the PTA year round!

BoxTops for Education.  Clip BoxTop coupons from your favorite products and submit them into the collection box outside the school office.  Last year, these simple steps earned over $460 for our school.  So easy.

AmazonSmile.  Ever placed an order through Amazon?  Sure you have!  So now check out AmazonSmile. It’s a new website operated by Amazon that lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, convenient shopping features, (and, yes, your Prime membership!) as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (http://smile.amazon.com/ch/91-1093520), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to our PTA.  The rest of your shopping is exactly the same.  Bookmark AmazonSmile today!

Office Depot.  Perhaps you shop at Office Depot for school supplies.  Just tell the cashier that you would like your purchases to support “Laurelhurst Elementary” at checkout, and Office Depot donates 5% of your purchases to our school.  That’s it.  This can be done all year round too, on ANY Office Depot purchases – school supplies or not.

eScrip.   Register one or all of your existing store loyalty cards (like Safeway & Bartells!) at http://www.escrip.com/program/about.jsp  and the participating merchant will make contributions to Laurelhurst Elementary PTA each and every time you use your loyalty card.  Set this up once & you are good to go.
