Amazon Smile makes donations to GVMS easy! There are two ways:
You can donate by buying items for the school via the Amazon Smile Charity Lists. The PTO has set up some staff wish lists for requested items to help with cold and flu season, help stock the staff lounge, and to help with random school supplies when needed by the kids AND when you order from the wish list, the goods will be shipped directly to the school. Please have a look at the charity lists .
When you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice (Great Valley Middle School Parent Teacher Organization). There is NO cost to you. When the majority of the GVMS families participate, a significant amount can be achieved!
These are the steps that need to be done:
You sign into Amazon Smile
Select your favourite charity (Great Valley Middle School) through smile.amazon.com instead of just amazon
Just Write A CHECK
Each year the PTO runs a “Just Write A Check” program so you can give donations directly to the GVMS PTO without having to ‘purchase’ or ‘volunteer’ for anything.
This program funds educational programs such as interactive assemblies, Camp Henlopen and Amazing Philly Race. In addition, donations collected help fund classroom enhancements, such as microscopes for the 7th grade science labs, a video camera for the TV studio, an Elmo projector for FACS, planters and soil for autistic support and emotional assistance items.
In response to GVMS parent feedback, the PTO runs a “Just Write A Check” program each year. Your donations go directly to the GVMS PTO without having to purchase or volunteer for anything..
Your contribution is confidential, tax deductible and can be matched by your employer (if they run a corporate matching program). THANK YOU to; Incyte, Pfizer, SAP, Vanguard, Merck, Saint-Gobain, SPA Car Wash and Wells Fargo already matched in 2018.
