Passive Fundraising

15 Minutes for Fundraising!

In fundraising, every bit helps. With that in mind, here are some suggestions how you can take 5-15 minutes and help Cascade K-8 get to its fundraising goal:

eScrip – Sign up online, and CK8 will receive eScrip ‘rewards’ from your shopping, and will receive back a donation of 1-4% of what we spend at these stores. More information & signup instructions.

Box Tops for Education
Cascadian Farm, Betty Crocker, General Mills, Ziploc, Avery, and more. You’ll be surprised where you might find those little pink rectangles show up lately. You can also link your shopping cards to earn additional rewards!

Campbells Labels for Education
This organization has grown and expanded, both in participating products AND in items Cascade K-8 can purchase with points. All that’s needed is the UPC code from any of the participating products. Even better – register your rewards card from Safeway, QFC, or Fred Meyer at www.elabelsforeducation.com and earn bonus points every time you buy Labels for Education products at those stores. (For a full list of participating stores – after all, grandparents love to support their grandkids! – visit their website.)

The large Campbells Soup Bin in the front office is the collection point for both the Box Tops for Education and the Campbells Labels for Education programs. Don’t have time to clip ’em nicely? Just tear that section out of the packaging and add it to a baggie, then drop it in the Campbells Bin in the front office of Cascade K-8. We’ll take care of the rest!

Other ways to help a little become a lot in our fundraising efforts:

Wash your car – Purchase a Brown Bear car wash ticket for $5. Not only will you contribute to Cascade K-8, you’ll also be helping to decrease the detergent chemicals and toxins that directly enter our waters through driveway car-washing.

Empty your pockets – Jingling when you walk through the front door at Cascade K-8? Grab that handful of change and drop it in the Coins for Camp jar, located in Cascade K-8’s front office.

Recycle your ink cartridges – Really, you don’t want to refill these on your own. Instead, bring them in and help Cascade K-8 stock up on office supplies as needed throughout the year. We earn $3 per cartridge at local office supply stores. Cartridges can be left with Jennifer in the office.

Eat! – Don’t forget, Jersey’s restaurant, located close to Cascade K-8 at 1306 N 175th St, donates 20% of your bill if you mention you’re part of the Cascade K-8 Community.

Mamapedia – Looking for ways to save money on local restaurants, family friendly activities, or better yet, some time at a spa? Sign up to receive ìSweet Dealsî from Mamapedia to purchase discounted vouchers (usually about 50%) from local businesses. 5% of your purchase will go to CK8. http://deals.mamapedia.com/orgs/3T1K
