Information on Fundraising

Do you want to earn money for PTF by shopping, cutting labels and doing things you would be normally doing anyway? The PTF is self-funded and utilizes community programs to earn money. Funds raised allow us to organize events, purchase items for the school and bless our staff. Below is a description of the programs that, when families participate, give money back to our school! Please read, so you can get involved!

1. Heinen’srequires families to sign up every year.  You can do this at the customer service desk OR online.  Bring your rewards card to the customer service desk withing the store and ask to add Westside Christian Academy to your card, OR simply click this link that takes you to card registration and follow the prompts.  *Bonus Incentive* When WCA reaches 45 family registrations on Heinen’s rewards, the whole school gets a Jeans Day. When we reach 75, the whole school gets a Spirit Wear Day. When we reach 100 registrations, PTF will provide a school wide Pizza Day! Just think-no lunch packing! Your child also gets a free cookie when you sign up, every time you shop.

2. Giant Eagle offers a one-time sign up that you must register AT the store’s customer service desk where you ask them to add Westside Christian academy to your rewards card.  WCA’s Reward Code for Giant Eagle is 3280*Bonus Incentive* We currently have 116 registrations through Giant Eagle. When we get that total to 160, we will have a school wide Jean Day. When we get that total to 200, the kids will all get a dress down day.

3. Amazon Smile Just go to Smile.amazon.com and choose Westside Christian Academy as the organization you want to support and every time you shop we get money. You do have to shop at smile.amazon.com though to send us those rewards. Sadly, they don’t come from Amazon. Though both are connected through your primary account, you do not need to sign up for a new amazon account.
*Bonus Incentive* Once we hit $200, the students will receive a Spirit Wear Top day. When $400 is hit, Jean Day and when $800 is hit the whole school gets a dress down day!

4. BoxTops, Campbell’s rewards and Tyson rewards. Start saving those up!  *Bonus Incentive* Every 300 BoxTops your child’s class collects, earns that class a dress down day. Same goes for every 50 Tyson labels.

To meet our goals and enjoy the dress down days, we will need the help of all WCA families plus Grandparents, friends, even neighbors to sign up for these programs. Spread the word!
