In addition to the large annual fundraisers, the Dailard School Foundation partners with community businesses that share a percentage of their proceeds with the school. These “passive” fundraising events help the students and community engage in support of the school, and establish valuable relationships.
If you would like to help oversee one or more events, or help plan them, please contact the committee member in charge of the event. Contact information can be found on the Activities & Events Committee page.
Scrip Gift Cards
This could easily be our best fundraiser and without having to donate money directly out of our bank accounts. Simply use the Scrip program to purchase gift cards to use on your everyday purchases. Buy the card at face value and a percentage is donated back to the school automatically. Cards can be the traditional plastic, printed, or instantly scanned from your phone. The percentages vary by store, but there are many stores. And if each family could just choose to start with one store to regularly use a scrip card at, it would help the school earn enough to add more sessions of the power thirty program which directly benefits all of our children.

Target—Take Charge of Education
Apply for a Target REDcard and select Dailard as your school of choice. Enroll your REDcard at Target’s website and Target will donate 1% of your REDcard purchases to Dailard. Another perk of using your Target REDcard is an automatic 5% discount on your entire purchase.
Box Tops for Education
Collect box tops from specially marked food and paper products (found at ordinary grocery stores) and bring them to school. Dailard earns 10 cents for each box top it redeems. Box Tops for Education brought in $1,700 during the 2014–2015 school year.
Shop at Office Depot
Office Depot credits 5% of purchases (with some exceptions) to Dailard when you present the school ID #70013844 at purchase. If you find yourself at the store without the number handy, don’t worry—the cashier may be able to look it up for you.
