PTO Fundraising

  • FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGNS
    The Folger McKinsey PTO starts by asking for your support in joining the PTO. You can choose the level of membership you feel comfortable with. Family memberships start at $25. We will never ask you to sell wrapping paper, candles or chocolate! The PTO membership income is the main source of the PTO’s annual operating budget: providing programs for students, teacher
    grants, assemblies, field trips, events, and more.

    • The Folger Fun Run is a program that helps the PTO provide bigger items to the school, such Chromebook and tablet purchases, and other technology replacements and upgrades.
    • The Folger McKinsey Auction & Owl-Out Bash is a fun adults-only social that helps support our long-term fundraising efforts, which support the installation of new playground equipment and other campus improvements, as well as expanding the programs and benefits we are able to offer our students and teachers.

     

     

    HOW CAN I HELP FOLGER EARN “FREE MONEY?”

    Amazon Smile is a free program that will give a percentage of every purchase started at

    smile.amazon.com back to Folger McKinsey. The first time you navigate to Smile , you'll be prompted to pick a charity of choice. And yes, your prime account works with this too! 

    Send in your used Toner Cartridges, cell phones and small electronics. We’ll recycle them for you! Go to www.fundingfactory.com for a complete list. The box to recycle them is by the SACC room by the main office. 

    Shop at Office Depot! Present your school's 5% Back-to-School ID number when you shop online, over the phone or at Office Depot stores. Does not affect your Worklife Rewards!

    BoxTops are worth cash for Folger McKinsey! Collect BoxTops from over 300 participating products and send to school monthly with your child. BoxTops are going DIGITAL! You can still send BoxTops in with your child in an envelope or baggie, marked with your child’s name and teacher’s name, but be sure to download the BoxTops App and snap photos of your grocery store receipts to maximize Folger’s earnings! 

    The Folger Outdoor Classroom Club (OC2) is spearheading our Aluminum Recycling Program. Save your aluminum cans and bring them on can collection days. A ParentSquare post will be sent to notify the school of the dates. The local recycling center pays for the cans! 

    We also are encouraging Folger’s to recycle more than just aluminum cans: 

    ·         Aluminum soda cans;

    ·         Aluminum beer cans;

    ·         Aluminum tea cans;

    ·         Aluminum cat food cans;

    ·         Aluminum foil;

    ·         Old Aluminum roof gutters and downspouts;

    ·         Old Aluminum storm doors; and

    ·         Old Aluminum patio furniture etc. 

    If you have large items to donate, we have a volunteer that will pick them up free of charge. Contact the PTO if you have a pickup! 

    Eat at Ledo’s Pizza on the 1st Tuesday each month during the school year is Folger McKinsey PTO night. Drop your receipt in the basket and we'll receive a portion of sales. Take out applies, too!
