Fundraising is critical to the successful operation of the Bonnie Doon Playschool and helps keep costs low for parents.
The playschool’s major fundraising event is a casino, whose funds contribute to the bulk of the school’s operating budget, held every second year. During a casino year, each family must provide one volunteer for the casino per child (the volunteer does not have to be a family member). This is non-negotiable. If your family is unwilling to provide a volunteer for, or is not represented at the casino, your child will be withdrawn from the program immediately unless you pay an opt out fee of $800. While this may seem strict, the success of the playschool is almost entirely dependent on funds raised from the casino.
During a casino year there will be one additional fundraiser and during non-casino years there will be two fundraisers with a minimum fundraising requirement of $150 per child per event or an opt out fee of $100 per child per non-casino fundraising event. Participation by all playschool families is essential to fundraising success.
SKIP THE DEPOT
One of our ongoing fundraising efforts throughout the year is through Skip the Depot. The service will pick up your bottles, take them to the depot, and automatically donate the funds to the playschool. It’s an easy way to support the playschool and takes just a couple minutes to register and confirm that you’d like to donate to Bonnie Doon Playschool.
Beyond signing up for yourselves, it would be fantastic if you shared the link above with other friends and family to help support the playschool.
Bonnie Doon Playschool has an account at Mabel's Labels that supports our classroom. Please note that we are unable to credit individuals for their fundraising commitment for Mabel Labels orders.
