Many of you have asked about ways to support Braeburn. In addition to volunteering your valuable time, below are several really important ways to support our wonderful school community:
1. Bonus Bucks Program
This program allows you to purchase and shop at participating retailers with gift cards. You buy the gift cards at cost and a percentage of each purchase goes directly to Braeburn. This is an easy way to raise important funds without having to sell or solicit anything. Last year, the program made over $6000! A little effort from everyone adds up and makes a big difference! We're proud to report that the funds earned from this program over the past several years were used to purchase the new playground equipment that is currently being installed. Please see the attached flyer and form for more information. We will also have a table at curriculum night starting tonight at 6 p.m. to answer any questions and to help sign people up.
2. Stop and Shop A+ School Rewards
All you have to do is register your Stop and Shop rewards card and you will earn points every time you shop. Visit www.stopandshop.com
and sign into your Stop and Shop account or register if you don’t already have one. Under My Account
, select Manage Your Account
, then Rewards & Savings
. You can then select Braeburn as your school to reward. Our school ID is 07528. Once you enroll you never have to do it again! Don’t delay – this program has begun for the 2018-2019 year and will run through March.
3. AmazonSmile and Konstella.com/amazon
We now have two ways to earn free money while shopping on Amazon. Sign up for AmazonSmile and earn 0.5% back on eligible purchases AND shop through our Konstella link and earn an additional 1%. Purchases made through the Konstella link are automatically connected to AmazonSmile.
- Visit amazonsmile.com and select “The Parents and Teachers of Braeburn, Inc.”
- Be sure to shop Amazon through our Konstella link (Konstella.com/amazon or by clicking on the icon on our Konstella page or in the Konstella app).
4. Employee Giving Campaigns
Does your employer participate in an annual employee giving campaign? Many employers encourage their employees to donate to several worthy organizations of their choice and then offer to match donations to maximize the contribution. If you have the opportunity to participate in an employee giving campaign, please consider designating the Parents and Teachers of Braeburn Inc. (tax ID: 222890610) as the recipient!
