Fundraising: Easy Ways You Can Help
The Demarest Home and School Association runs several big fundraisers during the school year, including special events, book fairs, school spirit sales, and a spring plant sale. The money goes to sponsor enrichment programs for students, subsidize class trips, and purchase special supplies for the school — from birthday pencils to teacher “wish list” items to computing equipment.
You can help by becoming a member of the HSA and participating in our activities. In addition, there are several other ways you can support us financially throughout the year, without paying an extra cent.
1) Scan Your Box Tops
This is an easy way to raise money for Demarest. Download the BOX TOPS app on your phone and choose Demarest Elementary School. Scan your receipts (within 14 days of shopping). Each Box Top is worth 10 cents — they add up fast! Last year, the HSA submitted more than $1,000 worth of box tops.
2) Search and Shop Through iGive.com
When you register for iGive.com and then search or shop through its portal, you earn Demarest a penny or more per search, plus up to 26 percent of your purchases at stores that include Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, Expedia, Office Depot, Staples and more.
3) Office Depot Gives 5% Back to Demarest
Simply make a purchase of qualifying school supplies, provide the Demarest ID No. 70065659 at checkout and Demarest will receive 5% back in credits for FREE supplies!
It’s a small act that can make a huge difference.
4) Shop through Amazon Smile
Open the Amazon app on your phone or visit smile.amazon.com. Type “Amazon Smile” into the search bar in the Amazon app. Tap the amazon smiles logo, and switch your charity to Demarest Home and School Association of Bloomfield Inc. When you order anything from Amazon with the app, a small percent will go to our school. It all adds up, we have earned over $300 since June of 2022!
