Fundraising

There are so many ways to support CSA fundraising! At no cost to you and without even changing your every day routine, you can earn “Easy Money” to support CSA enrichment. Please review the programs below and you’ll be surprised at how effortlessly we can all earn this money for our school, year-round!

1. Change your default search engine to www.Goodsearch.com, a Yahoo-powered website. Every time you search the internet, Pine Hill will automatically earn $.01—which can really add up! And, if you purchase any items from vendors through www.Goodsearch.com , Pine Hill will earn a percentage of your purchase. Just type in “Pine Hill Elementary” in the “Who do you Goodsearch for?” box. That’s IT! For more information, please go to www.Goodsearch.com or contact Susan Hanlon.

2. Clip “Box Tops” from the packaging of foods and other grocery products you already purchase, and send them to school in an envelope marked “Box-Tops For Education”. Participating products include Cheerios, Total and other General Mills Products, Betty Crocker cake and brownie mixes, Nature Valley granola bars, Yoplait yogurts, Old El Paso Mexican fare, Kleenex brand tissues, Ziploc bags and many more. You can also earn Box Top coupons directly from your grocery store at check out. To see a complete list of participating products, please visit www.boxtops4education.com or contact Pam Dowse.

3. When you shop online, use www.onecause.com as your search engine. Through the “Find a Cause” link on the website, you will find many store brands—everything from LLBean to ebay, Expedia to iTunes and more. By buying through this website , instead of using a merchant website directly, you will earn Pine Hill a percentage of your purchase amount. This is a low-effort, no cost way to contribute to Pine Hill. Please visit www.onecause.com and click on “Join Now”.

4. If you have a Target “Red Card” (Target Visa, Target credit or Target check card), or decide to get one, you can earn money for Pine Hill while you shop at Target for your every day needs. Target will donate 1% of your purchase amount to Pine Hill, whether you shop at the store or online. All you have to do is designate Pine Hill as the school you wish to benefit, and use Pine Hill ID #59992 when you make your purchases.

5. Send your empty ink or laser toner cartridges to Pine Hill in your child’s backpack in a Ziploc bag labeled “For Office Depot Collection Box”. For every eligible cartridge, Office Depot will donate $3 to teachers to buy supplies for our classrooms. And, if you shop at Office Depot, be sure to use ID No.70045093. Office Depot will donate 5% of your purchase amount for more classroom supplies for our school.

In addition, CSA also organizes numerous other fundraising activities throughout the year. The CSA needs your help in promoting and supporting these efforts. Please consider donating your time, ideas or any amount financially to the CSA, so together we can continue to support the excellence of our school.
