November marks the beginning of the most generous time of the year. Like other nonprofits, St. Louis Language Immersion Schools sends out an annual appeal letter to its community members – something you should be receiving in the mail anytime now. But – there are many other ways to support SLLIS – here’s a quick list to consider throughout the holiday season and beyond!
Amazon.com has launched a charitable program called AmazonSmile. Through this program, shoppers choose a charitable organization to support and through every purchase Amazon donates 0.5% of the proceeds to the chosen organization. SLLIS is a registered charitable organization on AmazonSmile, meaning you can support SLLIS while shopping at Amazon.
On AmazonSmile, all products and prices are the same as Amazon, but your chosen organization will benefit from each purchase. To choose SLLIS as the benefitted organization for your purchases, type in St. Louis Language Immersion Schools when asked to select a charity when first visiting smile.amazon.com.
Box Tops for Education
Remember to continue collecting Box Tops to turn in for SLLIS. One box top equals a 10 cent donation to SLLIS. These add up and when more families participate, the more money SLLIS will earn! Look for the Box Tops for Education logo on participating products when you go shopping.
Every contribution makes a difference! Thank you for helping SLLIS with its efforts to purchase more resources for your child’s education. To assist with Box Top collection in your school, contact your SAC or the representatives below!
The French School – Suzy Hallerman
The Chinese School – Luann Schafer
The Spanish School – Emily Dusenberry
Through the eScrip program, purchases made at Schnucks (and other places) will create automatic contributions to SLLIS of up to 3% of what you spend. To participate, get a card at any Schnucks Customer Service Desk, register your card online or over the phone, and have your card scanned every time you check out at Schnucks. If SLLIS families scanned their eScrip card for their holiday groceries alone, SLLIS would benefit greatly!
Visit escrip.com to learn more about the program and other businesses that give back through the program.
Goodsearch.com donates to your chosen charitable organization when you use the website to do things you already do online. SLLIS is a Goodsearch participant as a beneficiary organization. For any web search, $.01 will be donated to your organization. There are also opportunities to shop at many online stores, and a percentage of purchases will go to your organization. On Goodsearch.com, there is a tab called “more ways to raise” which offers other opportunities to raise money for SLLIS, including online games, dining at
participating restaurants, and travel coupons.
Do you shop at Target? Consider applying for a Target RedCard and supporting SLLIS through your Target purchases. When you use Target’s RedCard to shop at Target, you get 5% off EVERY purchase you make (plus a bunch of awesome coupons) AND %1 of your purchases will go to SLLIS when you designate us as your charity of choice. Applying for a Target Credit or Debit Card at any Target store is FREE.
