There are many ways to support Louisville Preschool, often by simply shopping our local merchants!
Below is a list of participating merchants and on-going/special events.
This is a Neighborhood Reward Program in which you purchase a King Soopers reloadable gift card from the school for $5 - and it already has $5 on it! The next time you shop at the store, first load the card with your estimated amount of purchase (you can load with cash, check, debit, or credit), and then use the loaded card to pay. Each time the school reaches $5,000 in reloads, we earn 5% - that could add up throughout the year! Many schools and churches are already enrolled in this program so you may have a card for them, but you could always have a card for each organization and just rotate using them. Remember that our school is only pulling from our population of 60 families and staff, whereas churches and public schools have hundreds supporting them. Currently only 1% - that’s just 6 families - reload King Soopers cards each month to support our school! We can do better!!
On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you need to select a charitable organization (The Louisville Preschool) to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation. Here are the frequently asked questions for AmazonSmile.
Grandrabbits Toy Shoppe (all locations)
Grandrabbit’s will donate 10% of the value of your purchase to the preschool if you mention our name when checking out. Each January, the school is awarded “Bunny Bucks” to use for books and materials.
This is a program similar to Grandrabbits; please mention us when making a purchase.
The school has Kohl’s for Kids gift cards on-hand in several denominations. They are available at face value and can be used as gifts, for purchases at the store, or even as payment on your Kohl’s account. The school benefits financially based on our bulk purchase of the cards.
Precision Plumbing and Heating
This company donates $1000 a month to local non-profits! The organization is chosen based on the number of e-votes received for that month, with only one vote per email address allowed. Votes are cast by going to their web-site at www.precisionplumbing.com and writing in the Louisville Preschool as your non-profit choice. Since this is a monthly donation from Precision, your once-a-month vote could mean a hefty gift to the preschool. This year we may designate a certain month to push for votes, so stay tuned!
Scholastic Book Clubs
Each time you order books from Scholastic book clubs the school earns points. These points are then used for books and classroom materials. Watch for these orders to begin next month.
Watch your monthly newsletters and snack calendars for information on these special nights to connect with families. Eateries offer a kick-back (often 10% to 20%) to the school while you get to enjoy a night off from cooking!
This has become an annual event for us and by far our biggest fundraiser. It’s never too early to begin the solicitation process, so if you have any connections to local businesses, please mention our name. As a non-profit organization there are tax advantages to those who donate goods and services. No donation is too small!
We will be collecting milk bottle caps from Longmont Dairy for their “Milk Caps for Moola” promotion. Look for the collection box in the lobby.
I would also be interested to hear from families who shop at other stores - specifically Sprouts, Safeway, or Vitamin Cottage - to see if it would be beneficial for us to participate in their gift card programs.
Other opportunities may come up during the year and we will keep you informed. Thanks for your support!
