Passive Fundraising

Passive fundraising is the easiest kind of fundraising because you don't have to go door-to-door to sell candy, cookie dough, pizzas or gift wrap; you simply shop at your regular stores and purchase your favorite products and the Laurel Lane PTA reaps the benefits. What could be easier than that?

Many stores and manufacturers offer community programs that give back a designated amount ($0.10) or a percentage (5%) of their sales to a school or non-profit organization of your choice.  If you designate the Laurel Lane PTA to be the recipient of these rewards, not only does the PTA benefit but so do the students, the teachers and the entire school community.  These programs help the PTA and the school to "purchase" office supplies or classroom tools, playground equipment, physical education gear, music or art supplies and much more.

Here's is a listing of the programs in which Laurel Lane Elementary School participates:
