Fundraising Opportunities: Amazon Smile
Did you know that Midwest Christian Montessori Academy has a unique Amazon Smile link that makes it easier for you and your friends to find and support our school when you make purchases online with Amazon?
MCMA Amazon Smile Link
What does this unique link do?
When friends and family click on MCMA’s unique link, they skip the process to search for a charity to support among over 1 million eligible charities. Instead, they're taken to smile.amazon.com and are automatically asked if they want to support Midwest Christian Montessori Academy.
Please feel free to share this information with your family and friends! Thank you for supporting our school!
6th Annual Fundraiser
Family oriented entertainment, food, silent auction and raffles. We are looking for a committee of at least several people to handle some details in order for this to be a success. For all new parents/staff, this is our single largest fundraising event of the year. For the last few years, one of our volunteer moms headed a great deal of the work outside of the office that was necessary to run this fundraiser. As she has moved on, we are truly in need of others to fill her shoes.
The tasks involved have already been established and could easily be split up among several people (“many hands make light work”). Some of these tasks include:
Visiting local businesses to drop off donation request letters for silent auction and/or raffle donations
Notating on a shared spreadsheet (already prepared for you) the places at which you’ve dropped off donation forms
Picking up silent auction/raffle donations from local businesses
Purchasing supplies for décor/tableware for the event (with PTO budget)
Organizing and packaging up auction/raffle baskets
Decorating the venue on the day of the event
Tearing down after the event
Would you consider donating a bit of your time for this very important event for your child’s school? Pairing up with a friend or bringing your child along to a business or two makes this an even more enjoyable volunteer opportunity.
Please call the office to let Mrs. Eileen or Ms. Carolyn know if you are willing to give of your time and effort for this great fundraising event. When the date and theme have been secured we can begin the process of tasks listed above. We thank you so very much in advance for helping make this a wonderful success!
