Fundraising

As a non-profit preschool that focuses on economic diversity, fundraising is part of the financial health of the school.   Our mission is to ensure that those who want to attend SPP can be provided a generous financial aid package if the cost of school is a barrier to attending.  In addition, while we require that all families participate in fundraising with their time and effort, we do not require that all SPP families give financially to the school.

Our top fundraisers include:  The Chinook Book sales, rummage sales, direct asks/donations, sales from our AMAZON button and families, alumni and supporters who give financially through their employer giving program – some of which have matching contributions.

For your information:

SPP is a 501c non-profit.

SPP’s EIN number (for donation-matching purposes) is 27-110-9012

Chinook Books

In the fall, we have Chinook Books and apps for sale, and half the proceeds go to SPP! Chinook Books include hundreds of local coupons which are good until October 2018. See our fundraising coordinator for more details.

How it works:

Sales

Your friends and family can purchase the Chinook Book or mobile app (via a printed card with a link) from you directly. There are three choices for purchasing:

  • Book and Mobile App Combo: $30 The combo pack includes both the printed book and the mobile app. This gives you double coupons, and offers some coupons that you can’t get in the app alone. Sales tip: buy a combo yourself and keep the book and give away the app, or vice versa!
  • Book: $22 The book includes some coupons and transit tickets that can’ t be found in the app, and it has longer expiration dates. It is also really pretty!
  • Mobile App (Android or iPhone): $15 The app is convenient and has a feature where you can find deals near you. It also has “rolling coupons” with staggered expiration dates, as well as grocery and seasonal deals. Great for gifts!

We’ll have a stock of books and app cards in a locker at SPP, which you’re welcome to check out in advance of your projected sales. Any product that you don’t sell can be returned to us (in pristine condition) at no cost.

Payments

IMPORTANT: Once you’ve received the money from your sales, YOU must make out a check to SPP — we can’t accept checks from anyone who is not an SPP family. Bring your checks (or cash), as well as any unsold books, to school by October 30th.
