FUNdraising Opportunities - Easy Ways to Give

Every year a few of our FUNdraising opportunities include passive ways you can help contribute to our dear school. Please consider participating in the following ways:
  • Axxess Book/Card Sale to benefit Grades 3-8 Field Trip Fund. Axxess books will be sent home to each family on Monday, September 19th with an order form for additional books. Each book is priced at $30 with $10 from each sale benefitting the field trip fund. Our school goal is two books sold/purchased by each family. Please return payment, order form or unwanted book to school by September 30th.

  • Coin Challenge- As a kick off to our Annual Fund, we are collecting loose change from now until Winter Break. If your pockets are feeling heavy, please drop off your coins in the brown bottle located in the main office. Our goal is to fill the bottle and together we can do this! Thanks to Paul Walker for making the first donation during our meeting!

  • Apply for a Lazy's Acres Community Card. Pick up application at Lazy's Acres Customer Service Desk or in our main office. Based on how much you spend monthly our dear school earns 1-4%
  • Benefit - Do you have a smartphone? This option is a super easy way to purchase digital gift cards that you can then use to go shopping. A big advantage to using Benefit is that you can purchase the gift while you are in line. Check out “Feel good while you shop”  Be sure to clink on "Beneficiary" and choose The Waldorf School of Santa Barbara.

  • Mighty Nest - Shop online for eco-friendly and stylish and our school gets 15% of the total purchase price. Check out more at

  • Scrip - This program enables our school to sell gift cards while earning a percentage of the card's value. When you buy a gift card from WSSB for $100, our school earns $14. You might think that you do no use gift cards, but you can treat these gift cards as cash to purchase what you need every day! Please give orders to Anne Surber, our school bookkeeper,  by noon on the first and third Mondays of the month in order to receive your cards by Friday of the same week.
Order forms are attached or can be found in the main office.  For more information check out Scrip's website,  Many thanks to Melanie Rogers for spearheading this effort.
  •  Amazon Smile: Sign up on AmazonSmile and whenever you purchase something through Amazon, a portion of the proceeds goes directly to WSSB.
  • eScrip: Register your Visa, MasterCard or Amex at eScrip, and a percentage of each sale returns to WSSB to support our programs. Click on the pdf form below to see the many retailers to choose from and get your order form!
Many thanks for all the ways you contribute to our school! Together we can reach our FUNdraising goals simply and effortlessly.
