Fundraising & Support

Lake Washington Toddler Group relies on our students and community for support. Your fundraising efforts and donations provide fee waivers, classroom supplies and parent education lectures. Every donation helps!

Fundraising

We ask that each family raise $45 in fundraising (which includes both the Charleston Wrap fundraiser and Spring Carnival raffle ticket sales). People may also choose to donate money directly to LWTG by making a check out to LWTG and writing “donation” in the memo line.

Charleston Wrap Fundraiser

Charleston WrapOur school raises money in September through the Charleston Wrap Fundraiser. Charleston Wrap includes not only gift wrap, but homegoods, personalized gifts, and food. Families can simplify ordering for out of town family and friends with the online ordering option.

Our School’s online ID# is z-6236. You can register your student at www.charlestonwrapstore.com. Your student’s unique 7-digit STUDENT CODE for online sales is preprinted on the order form you received in class.

 

Spring Carnival Raffle Baskets

Every year LWTG hosts a Spring Carnival for all currently enrolled families. Donations from businesses and individuals in our community make this fundraiser possible. See the complete list of Spring Carnival Donors here. The page for the Spring 2017 Carnival Baskets is coming soon!

Donations from Retailers

Some large retailers also donate money to non-profit’s, like ours, when you make purchases with them.  Your everyday retail purchases can help LWTG continue to provide fee waivers, classroom supplies and parent education lectures.

AmazonSmile

In April 2014, we launched our affiliation with the AmazonSmile Foundation.

What is AmazonSmile?

AmazonSmile LogoAmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations, such as LWTG, selected by customers.

How does AmazonSmile work?

When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.

Is there any cost to charitable organizations or to customers?

No. There is no cost to charitable organizations or to AmazonSmile customers. The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate to the charitable organizations selected by customers.  It does not effect AmazonRewards points.

Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. Customers will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.
