Passive Fundraising

Sequoya offers many ways for you to support our school through every day shopping habits!  Please consider using these suggestions in the future to help Sequoya earn a % of your purchases:

AMAZON COMMUNITY REWARDS PROGRAM “SMILE”

Go to http://smile.amazon.com and search for Sequoya Association of Parents and Teachers (Scottsdale, AZ).  Each time you shop with Amazon, be sure to start at http://smile.amazon.com so that we receive a percentage of your purchase!

Select the menu, select Your AmazonSmile and then choose Sequoya Association of Parents and Teachers Inc as your current charity.  It’s that simple, now just use that site every time you use Amazon and start helping the school.

One concern people have is that you can’t use the Amazon app with Amazon smiles.  Well, there’s a solution to that problem!  Instead of using the Amazon app, save the smile.amazon.com site to your home screen and launch it from there.  The experience is very similar to the Amazon app and only takes a few clicks to save the link to your home screen.

FRY’S COMMUNITY REWARDS

If you do not already have a Fry’s VIP online account, please create one!  Click below for instructions on how to link your Fry’s card to Sequoya.  Make sure you have your Fry’s VIP card # on hand.  Every time you shop at Fry’s, a percentage of your shopping dollars are automatically given back to the Sequoya APT!  Every year, we raise money from loyal Fry’s shoppers. A great way to support Sequoya! You must update this every school year (number will stay the same).  Our code is XK496.

How to Re-Enroll for the Fry’s Community Rewards Program

Fall Giving & Companies that Match Your Donation to Our School

The Fall Giving Campaign has been put in place to simplify the lives of our families and students, and to also ensure that we don’t impede the efforts of other groups on campus who look to raise funds for their own needs.  Sequoya APT also prefers to have your child focus on academics rather than sales pitches.

Every dollar donated will go directly back to our school.  Sequoya is a 501(c)3 and your donation MAY be eligible for a company match from your employer. This list is NOT ALL INCLUSIVE – If you don’t see your company listed below, please contact your HR Department to see if they provide a company match to donations.

Some of the matching companies include but are not limited to, the following (click the logo for information):

Your donations will help the Sequoya family by providing for the following projects: new playground equipment, chrome books, etc.
