How does John Rogers PTA raise money?
Get kids involved in supporting their school by walking and securing “sponsors” who donate money to the PTA. Last year we rose over $12,500 and the kids got exercise and had fun!
Direct Donation and Employee Matching
John Rogers PTA is a non-profit charity and accepts financial donations. Your donation supports much needed programs at the school and is a great tax deduction for you. Grandma, Grandpa and friends’ donations are welcome as well!
Donations can be sent directly to:
John Rogers PTA Attn: Treasurer

Ask if your employer matches your donation to double your contribution!
Box Tops & Labels for Education
The PTA collects Box Tops and Labels for Education, which are all turned back into the companies for cash/supplies for our school. A collection site is located next to the saltwater tank. Clip, Recycle and Earn! Contact: Candice Holsapple firstname.lastname@example.org
Book Fair and Used Book Sale
Scholastic Book Fair is back again! On Nov 17th-20th PTA will hold book sales with proceeds benefiting the school. The Used Book Sale runs in Nov & again in the Spring. Not only do we make money for the school – we get books in kids’ (and adults’) hands and get everyone reading!
Cookie Dough Sale
Get ready Rogers’ bakers! Cougar Mountain cookie dough will be back this fall. We will be asking the adults to sell the cookie dough and you will get some great cookies for your freezer!
Shop at Retailers that support schools
Many retailers, including Fred Meyer, Amazon (access Amazon Rewards directly through PTA website), Target, Office Depot, Bartell Drugs, & Safeway donate a percentage of your purchases to the school of your choice. It’s easy…just tell them what school you are supporting.
