“Passive” fundraising lets you contribute to GPCS while doing your everyday shopping. While these programs do not require a cash contribution, each seemingly small contribution adds up in a big way to benefit a variety of GPCS programs.
Amazon will give a portion of most of your Amazon purchases to GPCS if you simply start your Amazon shopping at smile.amazon.com and (on your first visit) designate “Greater Portland Christian School Association” as your charitable organization. The site is identical to amazon.com; you use your regular Amazon account to do your shopping. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.
Once you have designated GPCS as your charitable organization, Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com in the future will result in a donation to GPCS.
We hope that you will use smile.amazon.com from now on, and that you will also pass this message on to your friends and family. The more people who use smile.amazon.com and designate Greater Portland Christian School, the more money will go to GPCS! It does not cost you anything extra and helps our school a lot!
GENERAL MILLS BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Cash is awarded to the school for box tops from qualifying General Mills, Betty Crocker, and Pillsbury products with the “Box Tops for Education” logo. Simply clip your box tops, check the expiration date, and set them aside for future collection. Our earnings from this program go toward playground improvement. Encourage your friends, family, and church to support GPCS in this very easy way.
