In addition to the two major school-wide fundraisers - Giving Tuesday and Amplify Austin - parents and students can assist with fundraising in many other ways:
- Find a NYOS Sponsor!
If you are connected to a business or organization that would like to sponsor NYOS fundraising events throughout the year, notify Community Outreach Specialist Amy Elms at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Collect and Turn In Box Tops and Labels for Education!
Box Tops can be found on a variety of General Mills products such as Cheerios, Kleenex, Betty Crocker, Ziploc and more and are worth 10 cents each. Parents can bring unexpired Box Tops to the front desk of either campus at any time throughout the year, and the proceeds from them are equally distributed to every teacher from pre-k through high school for their classroom needs.
Labels for Education can be found on Campbell’s products, including Dannon, Prego, Glad and Pepperidge Farm’s Goldfish and are worth points that can be used to purchase needed supplies for art, P.E. and music. Parents can bring Labels for Education to the front desk of either campus at anytime throughout the year. Go here to learn more about how the NYOS PTA supports our school with Box Tops!
- Use a Target Red Card
Do you have a Target Debit Card? If so, Target will donate 1% of your Target purchases on this card to NYOS Charter School. Simply log into your Target card account and click on "Take Charge of Education" at the bottom. Enter NYOS’s zip code, then choose NYOS and save the changes. It’s that simple!
- Sign up for the Amazon Smile Program
Did you know that Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organizations, including NYOS Charter School? To support NYOS, just go here and login to your Amazon account. Once logging in, just follow these steps:
- Search for "NYOS Charter School" within the bottom toolbar that says, "Or pick your own charitable organization."
- Select NYOS Charter School as your charity of choice.
- Select "Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support NYOS Charter School Inc."
- Select "Start Shopping."
- Donate Coke Rewards Points
Go to the Coke Rewards Page and register to set up an account. Under the “schools” tab, click “donate to a school”. Enter zip code 78753 or 78758 and scroll down to select "NYOS Charter School". Press “continue” and our page will come up. Both campuses are included so you may actually choose a campus. Click "donate points." You can donate as you get them or wait until we announce one of the “double points” events.
- Dine at local restaurants who sponsor PTA Spiriit Nights
Organized by our PTA, local restaurants invite our NYOS community to dine in their restaurants on specified dates and the restaurants provide NYOS with a percentage of the sales. Spirit Nights also provide another opportunity to connect with other NYOS families.
- Donate Needed Supplies!
Both campuses have regular supply needs and seek donations throughout the year. Common needs include copy paper, tissues, fat markers, glue bottles, and thermometer covers. Check teacher pages on our website to learn more about needs for common items.
