7DE’s Fundraising Programs

PTA Fundraising

This year, rather than selling wrapping paper, cookie dough, and other cumbersome items that give marginal profits to the school, we are asking families to donate $50 (or more) to our Direct Donation Drive. Any amount you can give is welcome. Our goal is 100% participation. What will we do with this money?

  • Fund assemblies and subsidize field trips

  • Purchase classroom supplies and periodical resources like Time for Kids and Scholastic News

  • Hold fun family events like KinderConnect, Fall Festival, Grandparents’ Day and so much more

  • Host teacher appreciation events

  • Purchase planners for 2nd-5th grade students!

  • See our approved budget for more examples of how PTA funds are distributed.  2017-18 Budget

Direct Donations are 100% tax deductible and can be made by anyone (grandparents, friends, businesses, etc.) who wants to support 7DE.

The following companies are additional ways that we use to raise money everyday!  





Box Tops for Education

Please clip Box Tops and send them into school!  Each Box Top earns money that goes directly to 7DE PTA. Last year we raised over $1200!  Click here to see a list of products that feature Box Tops. This is a year-round program so send the box tops in throughout the school year.  There's also an app for that!!  Box Tops Bonus App.

Graul's Supermarket




Graul's Receipt Fundraising Program

For October 2017 – March 2018, Graul’s will issue yellow color receipts.  Please send into 7DE all of your yellow? color receipts.  For every $25,000 worth of receipts collected, the 7DE PTA will earn $250.00.  Last year we raised $384 because we were able to pool our receipts in excess of $25,000 with other area schools and receive a pro-rated award.



Giant A+ School Rewards

These rewards can be earned just by linking your shoppers card to our school account!! Its that easy!

Please visit www.giantfoodstores.com/aplus and follow the links in the "Designate Your School" section on the right hand side of the page. Our school ID is 21133.  These funds go directly to the school, not the PTA.





Scholastic Book Fair

Twice a year, we invite you to participate in our school's Scholastic Book Fair, where students and families can purchase books and other cool items! Please visit  for more information about upcoming 7DE Book Fairs!


Here’s a smart way to help our school earn free supplies.  By using our school’s identification number every time you shop at Office Depot, 5% of your qualifying purchase amount will be offered to our school as an Office Depot Merchandise Card to use for free supplies!  Our School’s ID # is:  70047102
