FUNDRAISING AND SUPPORT
Every donation helps
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.
How can I help support LWTG?
There are many ways you can support and contribute to the success of our program during these uncertain times. In addition to the options below, you may chose to enroll additional parents or caregivers from within your household and participate as a family. You may chose to donate your time by volunteering to prepare art supplies or assembling art cart kits. Please contact your Teacher to discuss volunteer opportunities.
Charleston Wrap Fundraiser Fall 2021

Mabel's Labels (Ongoing Fundraiser)
This is the place to buy custom name labels for the stuff kids lose! These peel & stick labels are ultra-durable -- laundry and dishwasher safe. Shop online at mabelslabels.com. Be sure to click on "Support a Fundraiser" and enter "Lake Washington Toddler Group" in the search bar before you start shopping.
We ask that each family raise $40 either via the one of the online fundraisers or by making a direct donation. Checks may be made payable to LWTG with the memo “donation."
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. Visit our Spring Carnival Baskets & Donors page for more details about the baskets. For more information about the Carnival event and Raffle Baskets, click here for our Carnival FAQ Sheet. Due to COVID-19, we held an online auction for the Carnival Baskets last Spring. The details of this event for next Spring are to be determined.
Employer Matching Programs
Many employers offer employee donation matching programs. Your company may match your financial donation, time donation, or both.
LWTG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group and our EIN is 91-1254252 therefore your donation is tax-deductible. If you need assistance with documentation of a donation made to our program, please contact our treasurer.
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.
In April 2014, we launched our affiliation with the AmazonSmile Foundation. AmazonSmile 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.
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.
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 affect Amazon Rewards points.
Fred Meyer Rewards
You can help LWTG earn donations just by shopping with your Fred Meyer Rewards Card! Fred Meyer is donating $2.5 million per year to non-profits in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, and we are proud to be part of this program.
