GCA free money
Free Money is the Gordon Community Association’s year‐round effort to raise money for the school by participating in a variety of rewards programs. With your help each year we raise thousands of dollars to pay for things like family gatherings and parent education nights. And it's easy to do!
Ways to help all year long
Shoparoo App New this year!
No matter where you shop, if you take a picture of your receipt with this phone app, Shoparoo will generate money for Gordon School. How much? Just 40 supporters can generate $1,000 for the year. How do they do it? Shoparoo anonymously gathers shopping trends that they tabulate into marketing research reports. Download the App today.
When you shop at Amazon, start off at smile.amazon.com Designate The Gordon School as your charity, and Gordon receives 0.5% of eligible purchases. Hint 1: Install the add‐on “Smile Always” for Chrome or Firefox, or “Keep on Smiling” for Safari. This will make sure you start out at the Smiles website. Hint 2: Don’t place your order using your smartphone app ‐ it won’t credit you for the purchase. Instead, place the order using your phone’s web browser.
Stop and Shop
The Stop & Shop A+ program gives cash to Gordon each time you make a purchase at their store and use your Stop & Shop store card. Even a small purchase such as a loaf of bread or a drink means money for Gordon if you scan your store card when you pay. But you MUST register your Stop & Shop card in order for the schools to benefit! Visit stopandshop.com/aplus and link your card to The Gordon School.
Collect Box Tops
When you see the Box Tops for Education logo on a product, clip it out. Gordon receives 10 cents per box top. Doesn’t sound like a lot? If every family clipped two box tops a week that’s $3,200 for Gordon. In February, we will have the Box Tops Collecting Contest between the grades (with an ice cream party for the winner), so start collecting now!
Every February we will have a friendly competition across the grades to see which grade returns the greatest totals for Box Tops and Stop and Shop receipts.
Look for your grade's container in the Commons in February!
The grade with the highest return will enjoy a special snack sponsored by the GCA.
Remember, everyone wins as free money helps to fuel GCA events like family gatherings, visiting author and other special events our kids enjoy!
