Fundraising: things to Do Right Now!
1. Donate to the Fund For excellence
The easiest way to support our school and get our fundraising year off to a good start is to contribute to our Fund for Excellence. The PTA spends an average of $300 per student each year. Our programs would not be possible without the monetary support of our parents.
We ask that you donate $1 per day ($180) per child, but any amount is appreciated. You can pay by credit card or check (payable to Strandwood PTA) at Jump Start Day, drop your donation check anytime in the PTA inbox located in the school office or donate online today.
Use our Amazon Link to support Strandwood all Year Long. Make sure to bookmark it so that we earn on every purchase.
Register your credit cards with eScrip so that we get a % when you shop at Lundardis and other local retailers. As long as your card is registered, your donation is automatic. We made about $500 on this program last year, with only a fraction of our families participating. Sign up today - it's easy and free!
With the Benefit mobile app you buy and redeem retailer gift cards instantly. Every purchase results in a percentage of the transaction going to support Strandwood Elementary. Track all of your balances, and see your contributions at the tap of a finger. Not a dime is asked beyond your typical shopping spend, and it’s as easy as paying with a credit card. It’s totally frictionless fundraising! See it in action!
