We’ll have one or two large fundraisers this year, but you don’t have to wait for those to donate to Hillrise. Below are several ways you can go about your daily life while still donating money back to the school. We call it SHOP • DINE • DONATE!
Family Nights Out
Dates that local businesses designate to support Hillrise Elementary. Watch for emails and “like” Elkhorn Hillrise PTO on Facebook for more details on upcoming Family Nights Out. We have a lot lined up this year with some fun new surprises, too!
Together A Greater Good is an Omaha-based shop-eat-drink-donate program that partners with more than 200 local businesses. Simply download their app, and when you purchase anything from a participating business, use it to “TAGG” your purchase. Five percent of your purchase will automatically be donated when you designate Hillrise PTO as your chosen non-profit.
Instead of using amazon.com, go to smile.amazon.com. It’s the same Amazon shopping experience, but through their Amazon Smile program, a percentage of your purchases will be automatically donated to the non-profit of your choice. Select “Hillrise Elkhorn Parent Teacher Organization” and start donating today.
Box Tops for Education
Earn cash for Hillrise by downloading the Box Tops app on your phone and scanning your receipts all year long.
Hy-Vee Cash 4 Students
From Sept. 1 through Dec. 31, send your Hy-Vee receipts to the school. They donate $1 for every $200 spent. This includes groceries, pharmacy, gas, and market purchases from any location, as well as Aisles Online.
Baker’s Community Rewards
Every year, the parent corporation of Baker’s donates $2 million to designated local non-profits. If you enroll in their Community Rewards program, your purchases will count toward our PTO’s percentage of that donation. The more you shop, the higher our percentage of the $2 million. Visit customer service to get a Baker’s Plus Shopper’s Card, and then go online to create an account and enroll in the Community Rewards Program.
