While the Idlewild Elementary School PTO is not a fundraising organization, we do help our school by giving support to several ongoing fundraising opportunities. We also use all proceeds from activities like the Fall Carnival and Santa Store to pay for things that directly benefit our teachers and students. Some examples are paying for Opera Memphis to perform for our students and buying signs and banners for our school.
There are several simple ways to help our school raise money; many of them cost you absolutely nothing. Here are the campaigns that we are currently running.
Kroger Community Rewards is a super simple way to help our school while you do your regular shopping. It only takes a few minutes to register your card and then every time your shop you will be helping our school earn up to $50,000 that can be used for activities and supplies. Visit www.krogercommunityrewards.com to register your card today! Our NPO number is 81151 or you can search for Idlewild Elementary School.
If you need more assistance, we have step by step instructions on our website: http://idlewildpto.org/fundraising/kroger-plus-card-fundraiser/. If you do not have internet access at home, Ms. Rodda has invited parents to use the library computers to register their cards and will have a copy of the step by step instructions to assist you. If you don’t have a Kroger Plus card, you can get one at the customer service desk at any location. Friends and family are also welcome to use this program to benefit our school.
Amazon When you shop at Amazon via the links and banner ads on our website, you will be helping us earn gift cards that we can use to buy supplies and equipment for our school. It costs you nothing extra – just click on one of our links and do your regular shopping and we’ll automatically get the credit!
