As a Cooperative Preschool, we need successful fundraisers to support our school. This year’s fundraising goal is $10,098. The funds raised benefit our school in many ways. They help pay for our exceptional teacher, provide supplies and equipment to use in the classroom, cover rent for our location and above all help keep our tuition and registration fees low. If any family would like to forgo participating in fundraising there is a mandatory $250 donation.
Our Fundraising Plan for the Year…
Starting in October we will begin our wreath sales. This is an easy way for us to spread holiday cheer to those near and far! If you are looking for a thoughtful and inexpensive gift to send or give your neighbors our wreaths are the answer. Local wreaths will be ready for pick-up and delivery the week before Thanksgiving. You can hand deliver the wreath or have one sent to out-of-town loved ones. Each family is asked to sell a minimum of four wreaths or other items for sale. Every wreath packet sold for the school will make anywhere between 50-75% profit. For every item sold the student’s family will receive one ticket for a prize drawing. The more you sell the more opportunities you have of winning a wonderful basket of prizes!
We host three bazaars a year to promote local business and provide opportunities for the community to shop! Proceeds from our fall bazaar on November 12, 2016 will benefit our Military Scholarship Fund. Proceeds from our February and May bazaar’s will benefit our general preschool fund. To reserve your spot for the vendor fair please contact our Fundraising Chair, Miranda Shenkel-Dunn, at SteilacoomCoOpFundraiser@gmail.com.
Auction and Bunko Night
This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and the most fun for all parties involved! The auction and bunko night is Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. in the school’s recreation room. It is an adult-only silent auction, bunko and 50/50 raffle. There is something for everyone in the auction and everyone always has a good time!
The goal for each family is to create or donate items or services for the auction baskets (valued at $50 a basket). In-lieu of creating their own basket, families may procure items from businesses. Families who sell the most entry tickets to the event and 50/50 tickets will win prizes!

Donate Items for our Classroom
Several of our classroom materials and supplies are generously donated by parents, family members and supporters. Keeping the students engaged with a variety of enriching activities requires lots of supplies! Please inquire with Ms. Laurel about her current wish list!
