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.

SPP promotes a variety of fundraising initiatives to support our school.  Our top fundraisers include:  Chinook Book sales, rummage sales, direct asks/donations,  AMAZON button and families sales, and alumni and supporters donating through their employer giving program – some of which have matching contributions.  Your donation will ensure that our school can be supported for years to come, proving enrichment for our multicultural community of children.

For your information:

  • SPP is a 501c non-profit.
  • SPP’s EIN number (for donation-matching purposes) is 27-110-9012



Our annual School Yard Sale happens in the fall.  What we need from families:

  • Donations of sale items:
  • Volunteers to help


In the fall, we have Chinook Hard Copy 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:


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.


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.

This is our first online silent auction event for the fall.  We’ve included “experiential items” that were donated by current and past SPP families.  All proceeds will go to support the operation, financial aid packages, and mission of SPP. The silent auction will start on November 28th through November 30th. Items are still being added, but you can preview the currently available items at https://www.32auctions.com/SPPauction2017. Your support will be greatly appreciated and will help make our auction exiting and fun for everyone!  Please familiarize yourself with our Silent Auction Legal Rules and view and distribute our Online Silent Auction Flyer.

Our online silent auction event has ended, and we are incredibly excited!  We were able to meet our financial goals, raising over $9,500.  We couldn’t have done this without the participants.  Because of you, we can do so much more…THANK YOU!
