In addition to our several fundraising events held throughout the year, there are silent fundraising opportunities that enable parents, friends, and relatives to help our school and our children without spending any additional time or money!  

Below is a listing of the various ways you can support the school with this type of quick and easy fundraising!  Please let us know of any others so we can add it to our list.

Employer-Matched Funds

Does your employer match charitable donations? Did you know that many employers will match your time, too?  If so, please help the PTSA benefit. Simply ask your human resource department for information and fill out the proper forms.  You can turn in the paperwork at a PTSA meeting or the PTSA inbox at school.  If you need additional assistance, please contact our Treasurer at for more information on how you can get this set up!



Help us raise funds by simply shopping online at NO additional cost to you!

  1. Go to (bookmark this site!)
  2. Log in with your Amazon account information (or create an account)
  3. Start shopping! Amazon will donate 0.5% of all eligible purchases 
Please ask your friends and family to use this link too to benefit our school!
* Why is Tacoma listed as our city?  The Amazon Smile program gets their information about eligible charities from Washington Secretary of State.  The address shown on file is the address for our state PTA (WSPTA).  They are our registered agent with the IRS and the Washington Secretary of State.  The AmazonSmile program pulls data from the IRS filing forms and that is what is listed on our filing. 

Box Tops for Education

You can clip Box Top coupons from hundreds of your favorite products and then turn them into your child's classroom PTSA folder.  Box Tops coupons are worth 10¢ each when our school redeems them from Box Tops for Education.  To learn more, visit—and thanks for choosing to make a difference for our school with Box Tops!
