Fundraising

As everyone knows, we have to have money to operate. The PTSO runs a number of fundraisers, and various corporations have donation programs which benefit the school. Please help out where you can.

PTSO Fundraisers

The following is a description of the various fundraisers the PTSO is in charge of and where the money raised goes.

Great Lakes Scrip Center

The Great Lakes Scrip Center (GLSC) sells gift cards for a variety of local and national retailers. You pay face value of the card and the PTSO gets a discount, letting us raise money. We will be posting monthly order forms which should be returned to the school. The order will be placed and the gift cards usually arrive within a week.

The October order for gift cards through the Great Lakes Scrip Center will be due on Wednesday, October 22. For more information, read the introductory letter; to place an order, download an order form and return it to the school by the 22nd.

Proceeds go the the PTSO General Fund.

CaféPress School Gear Store

CaféPress is where we run a School Gear Store. We sell T-Shirts, Buttons, Mugs, Caps, and more with Rogers related designs. For every item sold we earn 50¢ to $3. So get your cool gear at our CaféPress Store. Items can be delivered to any address, so this is a great way for friends and family to help support the school.

Lucky Lotto

We will be running our Lucky Lotto fundraiser in November. You'll purchase a numbered card for $20 which will get you a 3-digit number. If your number is chosen as the Pennsylvania Daily Number, you win a prize of $50 to $300.

Funds raised via Lucky Lotto go to pay for student activity buses.

Corporate Donations

Funds raised through Corporate Donations go directly to the school. The PTSO helps to organize these but receives no direct donations by doing so.

Giant Eagle: Apples for the Students

Register your Advantage Card at the Giant Eagle web site and starting on Sunday, October 28, each time you shop at Giant Eagle using your Giant Eagle Advantage Card®, you will earn points for the school - points our school saves and redeems for great educational tools.

The Giant Eagle Apples For The Students program will run 20 weeks, through Saturday, March 15, 2008, to give you enough time to support the school. Instead of collecting receipts, you simply donate your spending electronically through the Giant Eagle Advantage Card®. It has always helped you save money when shopping at Giant Eagle, and now the card can help our school earn points towards desperately needed educational awards.

Target: Take Charge of Education

If you have a Target REDcard (VISA or debit card), you can help earn money for Rogers. Go to their Take Charge of Education web page and designate School ID 90946 (aka Rogers Middle CAPA School). From Sept. 2006 to Sept. 2007 this earned us $684.17, but in Sept. 2007, we only earned $81.03. We can do better than this! If you're not one of the 37 people who have registered their REDcard, please do it now.

As of 12/31, we've earned $57.59toward our March 2008 donation. Please help us make this our best fundraising year ever!

General Mills: Box Tops for Education

All General Mills foods have Box Tops for Education printed on them. General Mills brands include Betty Crocker, Bisquick, Pillsbury, Pop Secret, Hamburger Helper, Cheerios, and many more. You can check the Box Tops for Education web site for a complete list of products. Just by signing up you'll earn 5 extra boxtops for the school. Once you've signed up, you can print coupons for some products or register your favorite children's book for a chance to win 10,000 Box Tops for our school.

If you think cutting out box tops to send in is too much work, you can earn box tops simply by signing up and shopping online.

In October we only earned $46.70 this way, certainly we can do better! To help us raise $500 dollars this year, all you need to do is send in 2 box tops per month, or spend $3 per month at one of the Marketplace stores. Keep collecting, our next due date is in March 2008.
