Clip Box Tops and Help Earn for Apollo!

Back to school is just around the corner and the perfect time to get those Box Tops rounded up and ready to send in! Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs! Box Tops are worth .10 each and they add up to real cash for our school! Last year Apollo earned $956.40; this year our goal is to raise $1,500.00.

 
To help our school, just look for the pink Box Tops on products, clip them, and send them in with your student with their teacher’s name clearly marked. Make sure you sign up at www.BTFE.com to get the latest information and promotions about Box Tops! You can also earn extra Box Tops on many products carried at Costco right now so keep your eyes open!

 


 


 

You Shop, They Give, Students Win!

You can earn money for our students when you shop with Amazon and Fred Meyer.

    • Use the Issaquah Schools Foundation website to log onto amazon.com. You’ll earn 8% of your purchase for the Issaquah Schools Foundation. Visit isfdn.org for our Amazon link.

 

Shop on Amazon?  Use Amazon Smile and benefit our children!
If you shop at Amazon, please visit smile.amazon.com, or click on the button in the left tool bar.  Make sure you add Apollo Elementary PTA (city listed is Tacoma) as your charity of choice.  Then, 0.5% of every qualifying Amazon purchase will be donated to our PTA, to benefit programs for our children!  Let’s take advantage of this easy way to raise money.

 
Does your company offer a corporate match program for nonprofit organizations?

Matching gifts are typically overlooked.   In 2012, The Chronicle of Philanthropy released a report entitled “How America’s Biggest Companies Give.” Two of the top 5 matching companies are right here in our community: Boeing and Microsoft. In fact, 65% of Microsoft employees request matching company contributions from their employer. Does your company have a matching gift program? If so, now is a great time to submit your Apollo PTA donations for matching.

Did you know that many employers will match your time, too? Apollo PTA has received over $7500 in contributions from our school family documenting and submitting their volunteer hours to their employer for matching this school year alone! What a great way to give back to our school AND have your employer support your child’s school.
