Hello from your friendly neighbourhood Fundraising Team!
The Fall Fete was a huge success, in raising funds and bringing our community together. Let’s finish our fall fundraising by meeting our $15,000 goal in our Direct Ask Campaign.
THANK YOU to those who have donated. We are at $4,000!
Please help us help the environment and reduce the number of trinkets and magazines making their way into your house. Unlike QSP which gave us only $0.32 on the dollar, every dollar we raise goes to Howard Home & School, for things like:
- sports equipment
- new computers
- theatre, dance and music experiences
- mental health supports
- visiting artists
- new playground equipment
- STEM initiatives and more!
Tell your kids about the Milestone Celebrations that will be rolling out over the next few weeks:
MILESTONE #1: When we reach $5,000, students will have Bring a STUFFY TO SCHOOL Day!
If you have not yet donated, please do so. This is an optional and private donation. The suggested donation amount is $50 per student. If you can donate more, please do. Not only to support our children’s programming but also to cover the donation for a family who is not in a position to donate. All donations, small or large, are appreciated. Donations of over $20 receive a tax receipt.
How Do I Donate?
The method of payment is via schoolcashonline.com. You will not see a donation item listed under your child’s name. Instead, at the top right of the main screen, click on “Items” and then “Make a Donation”. Please choose Fund Destination: Howard Junior Public School. The platform is facilitated through the TDSB, but all funds raised go to Howard Home & School.
May I Still Buy Magazines Through QSP?
Yes, absolutely. Any time of year you may purchase magazines through QSP and $0.32 of each dollar spent will go to the Howard Home & School. Go to qsp.ca and use your login from last year, or sign up and use Howard’s online ID 3721164.
Thank you for your support!!
