Your SPARC Committee has identified ways you can raise funds for Steppingstone. Recognizing that we are all busy and often over-scheduled, we have sought out several passive fundraising programs that don't involve selling items or spending extra money. After the initial 5 minute enrollment process is completed, many of these fundraising opportunities can be realized in your normal course of daily business.
Are you aware of a passive fundraising program that is not on our list? Please let us know about it at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shop with Scrip: Through Shop with Scrip, you purchase gift cards to your normal favorite businesses, and Steppingstone School earns a stated rebate. Each business offers a published rebate percentage with occasional “special offers” increasing the incentive amount. Please contact our Shop with Scrip Coordinator, Steppingstone parent Alison Kenyon to enroll in this program. The Shop with Scrip order form is available here.
Shop at AmazonSmile and .5% goes to Steppingstone: Set your bookmark to smile.amazon.com rather than Amazon and select Steppingstone School for the Potentially Gifted Inc. (our legal name) as your charity. Each time you place an order .5% of your total will go to Steppingstone!
Kroger Community Rewards Program: Now you can raise money for Steppingstone when you grocery shop! It's easy to enroll in Kroger's Community Rewards Program. It takes just a few minutes to create an account and choose Steppingstone School (program number 91312) as your organization. Then, each time you shop and swipe your Kroger Plus Card you will be raising funds for Steppingstone School! This program requires annual renewal by April 30.
Busch's Cash for Education: Busch's rebate program first involves on-line registration for a MyWay account, then a visit to Guest Services at your local Busch's store for a Busch's Cash for Education card. Once the Cash for Education card is linked to your MyWay account, you can begin to earn funds for Steppingstone School. After shopping at Busch's, simply present your cards at checkout – Steppingstone will earn up to 5% on purchases made by cash, check or debit card and 3% on purchases made by credit card.
Search & Shop Online for Steppingstone: Now you can earn money for Steppingstone every time you search the internet or shop online! Just go to www.goodsearch.com and type "Steppingstone" in the "Who do you GoodSearch for?" box. Be sure to bookmark the page and use it for all your searches. Also, if you go through GoodSearch to your favorite online stores (everything from Amazon to Walgreen's), a percentage of your purchases will be donated to Steppingstone!
