With the end of Target’s 20-year Take Charge of Education program and the Campbell Soup Company phasing out its Labels for Education program, many parent groups are looking for other passive fundraisers to replace that lost income.

The good news is that plenty of shopping and collection fundraisers are still active, including the popular General Mills Box Tops for Education program. Box Tops launched a digital app in September 2016 called Bonus Box Tops for Education; shoppers using the app can earn extra box tops for their schools.

We asked people in our PTO & PTA Leaders Facebook group to tell us about similar fundraisers their groups are using. (Join our closed group to be in on discussions like this from the start!) We organized their suggestions and others into the following sections:

National Affiliate and Loyalty Fundraising Programs
National Collection Fundraisers
Regional Collection Fundraisers
Grocery Store Loyalty Fundraising Programs

Do you know of other programs? Let us know in the comments at the bottom so we can add them to this list and share them with other readers. Before signing up for any fundraiser, be sure to read the fine print and decide whether it’s a good fit for your school community.

 National Collection Fundraisers

Organizations hold drives to collect gently worn shoes. Funds2Orgs picks up the shoes and pays according to the total weight of the items collected.

SunnyD Book Spree
SunnyD donates $120 worth of books to a classroom for each 20 labels received.
