Fundraising at Paso Robles Coop Preschool is an integral part of the cooperative experience. Tuition is generally lower at cooperative preschools since parent labor (working in the classroom, school clean up days, etc) offsets the overhead costs of running the school. However additional funds are needed to supplement and enhance the program and facility. Those funds are brought in via various fundraising events throughout the school year.

Our goal in all fundraising endeavors is to maximize the efforts of our families and the contributions of our sponsors. We rely upon your support, enthusiasm and participation as families and members to make our fundraising efforts successful. We hope to create a sense of community and pride in our school and members during these events. Thanks to everyone for all the hard work you do! If you have thoughts or ideas to help with fundraising please let us know. Your input is valued and respected.

GoodSearch

There are other small but significant ways we can earn funds. GoodSearch is a search engine which donates 50 percent of its sponsored search revenue to the charities and schools designated by its users. You use GoodSearch exactly as you would any other search engine. Because it’s powered by Yahoo!, you get proven search results. The money GoodSearch donates to your cause (PRCP) comes from its advertisers — the users and the organizations do not spend a dime!

In 2007, GoodSearch was expanded to include GoodShop, an online shopping mall of world-class merchants dedicated to helping fund worthy causes across the country. Each purchase made via the GoodShop mall results in a donation to the user’s designated charity or school – averaging approximately 3% of the sale, but going up to 20% or even more.

Since it doesn’t cost anything and you get proven search results, there’s no reason not to use it! Now its even simpler to use: PRCP has a custom toolbar that you can download here:

It will install into your browser and includes a GoodSearch search box as well as links to major GoodShop sites. This new toolbar is the best way to remind yourself to search the web via Good Search, and is a safe and easy way to help our preschool earn extra funds.
