Fundraising

 

To help keep the cost of our education as low as possible, we have a number of fundraising opportunities available. 

 

Through the efforts of students, families, and friends of Marquette, we have raised enough money to purchase a mini bus, upgrade technology, buy classroom supplies, further our fine arts program, and more. We are currently raising money to upgrade our security and access control. Below are a variety of ways you can be involved in these endeavors.

 

Gift Cards from Scrip

 

Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing prepaid cards and negotiable gift certificates that are used just like cash. You can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials; and with every purchase, you earn revenue for MMBA. In just the first 6 weeks of instituting this program, MMBA earned over $1,100 through your combined efforts.
  • You pay face value and get face value for any gift card you purchase.
  • Don’t let the term “gift” in gift card make you think it has to be used only as a gift! 
  • Buy gift cards for the stores you regularly shop at and then pay with the gift card whenever you shop there—groceries, gas, etc.
  • Buy gift cards as gifts too, of course. 
  • Pay with a check (payable to MMBA) or set up to have payment directly withdrawn from your checking account.

Box Tops for Education

 

Each year students collect Box Tops for Education from various products found around your house. Through combined efforts, we have raised over thousands of dollars through this program alone. We would appreciate your help in clipping and saving Box Tops. Download a complete list of products that include Box Tops.

 

You can also help MMBA by signing up at the Box Tops website and choosing our school name in the search field.  Be sure to check out the “earn” page on the Box Top website for contests that support the school, and don't forget to check back frequently! 

 

World’s Finest Chocolate


Delicious chocolate bars sold each March and April, the World’s Finest Chocolate is sure to satisfy your taste buds. Students sell the bars for $2 each, and MMBA receives $1 from each bar sold.

 

GoodSearch

 

Search, buy, dine. Feel good about yourself because you just helped another worthy cause. Through basic web searches, you can be sending money to MMBA if you search through the Yahoo! powered GoodSearch home page or toolbar. Next time you make an online purchase, do it through GoodSearch, and a portion of your purchase will be donated back to Marquette. Shop knowing your money went further than you had planned. Track the earnings by checking out the home page at GoodSearch. Together, our efforts go a long way.

 

Recycled Ink Cartridges, Phones


Instead of throwing away those old ink cartridges, laser cartridges, and cell phones, and accessories, donate them to MMBA to be recycled for cash. We send them to a recycling company and earn up to $7 for each item.

 

Since almost everyone has a computer, and probably a printer, you can help out. Even businesses with computers have been willing to donate in the past to help MMBA.  Asking friends, neighbors, co-workers, and employers to save old ink cartridges, laser cartridges, and cell phones helps both the environment and Marquette.

 

Cartridges and cell phones can be placed in the designated box outside Mrs. Primm’s office.

 

Target


If you sign up for REDcard at Target and designate Marquette Manor, Target will donate up to 1% of all your purchases to MMBA in the fall.

 

Office Depot

 

Office Depot's 5% Back to Schools Program is an easy way for your purchases to help MMBA. Each time you shop, present our school ID# 70032033 and 5% of your qualified purchases will go back to Marquette in the form of credit for the school to buy office supplies. Visit Office Depot's website for more information.

 

Shoparoo

 

Download the Shoparoo app on your smartphone, and simple tasks like grocery shopping become more exciting. Simply take a picture of your receipt via the Shoparoo app, and MMBA will earn money for every receipt you submit! It doesn't matter where you shop or what you buy; every receipt submitted results in a donation to our school.  

 

Simply download the free app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and then select our school as your chosen cause. Since there is no limit to how much we can raise with Shoparoo, be sure to invite your friends and neighbors to join us. Every receipt counts!
