How Can Boxtops for Education™ benefit us?

1. Money redeemed is cash, where it’s needed most. 

  • With the influx of programs that benefit schools through grants (public or private sector), many times teachers have a certain dollar amount allocated to purchasing specific things. Writing supplies may be a wonderful addition to a classroom, however, if a teacher specifically wants something else, the money can almost be wasteful.
  • Technology is on the rise, and gone are the ways of single-purpose overhead projectors and TV/VCR combos. Teachers of today are opting for state of the art technologies to help their children learn visually. Having a classroom laptop with a projector, or a TV equipped with an Apple TV is the route that many teachers of this generation are putting technology to use every day. But that stuff takes funding, and Box Tops for Education™ is the perfect way to have parents offset the cost of these items that don’t qualify for grant or government funding (depending on the school district.)

2. Your child can gain a stewardship heart by collecting Box Tops for Education™.

  • Take a moment and have your child call Grandma and Grandpa on the phone, and explain to them that they are collecting Box Tops for Education™ for their classroom. Giving your child the “fundraiser” responsibility teaches stewardship, and stresses giving back for a greater good. Luckily, this “greater good” benefits them directly as well.
  • If you have an older school-aged child, have them draft a letter to surrounding neighbors that are elderly, or don’t have children in school. Have it explain the program, and include an extra envelope with a stamp on it to mail any box tops to them. Not only does this improve your child’s writing skills, it also helps build a community within your immediate neighborhood.

3. There is a product for everybody!

  • If you are a family with picky eaters, or certain food allergies, there are even products that have Box Tops for Education™ that are non-food, such as Lysol or Ziplock baggies. Once you start looking for Box Tops for Education™ and are aware of the program, you’ll be surprised how easy they are to collect.
