Easy Ways to Help Raise Money for Fort River
Did you know you can provide financial support for programs such as field trips and curriculum enrichment at Fort River without spending any extra money? By supporting these “passive” fundraisers, you help the school earn points on things you buy anyway, at no additional cost.
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support our school every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to Fort River.
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to AmazonSmile to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile. On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you need to select Fort River Elementary School Parent Council to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. This information will be saved and then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation. You use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.
All funds raised through this program will be designated to help support field trips for our Fort River students.
