Did you know that when you shop for yourself and your loved ones, you could be generating donations to WSP—at no cost to you? We encourage you to consider these four easy ways to support the school in a big way, with little effort on your part. It’s community actions like these that give us the added resources to continually enrich our programs. Thank you!
We know some of you are moving away from shopping on Amazon. We also know how convenient Amazon can be, and that many members of our community are active users. Amazon will automatically route .5% of your spending to WSP if you shop through Amazon Smile. It’s the same Amazon experience, you’ll just be donating to the school as you shop!
To get started: Make sure you’re logged into your Amazon account and go to smile.amazon.com.
Click ‘Get Started’ and search ‘Waldorf School of the Peninsula,’ add us and you’re done! Bookmark smile.amazon.com and remember to shop at that link
RaiseRight (aka Scrip Gift Cards)
This program has accumulated more names than we can count but it boils down to a very simple concept: gift card fundraising. Buy a gift card to a major brand (Home Depot, Apple, Delta, Gap, Starbucks and more), and then use the cards to shop. The companies give back a percentage of your gift card spending to WSP. Earn 16% of your purchases at LL Bean, 15% at Athleta, for example, and yes, 8% at Krispy Kreme. You can start shopping right away with digital gift cards or have physical cards mailed to you.
To get started: Go to RaiseRight/enroll and enter WSP’s code: C82FAE382474L.
Locally owned Sports Basement offers 10% of purchases made by its members (Basementeers) to a charity of your choice. You can join the Basementeer membership program for a one-time $25 fee. Make sure you select Waldorf School of the Peninsula as your charity. Once you become a Basementeer, every time you shop at their stores, Sports Basement gives you 10% off and will donate 10% to WSP. If you already have a Basementeer account and want to update your charity beneficiary to WSP, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for considering these cost-free ways to contribute to our beloved WSP community. If you have questions about these programs, please contact email@example.com.
