Other Easy Ways to Help Raise Money
Listed below are several easy ways you can help raise money for Ventana Vista activities. While these donation amounts are small on an individual level, they truly have the ability to make a difference when we all participate. We have received thousands of dollars from these programs - and you can help!
- Pre-Paid Basha's Shopping Cards - We have Basha's cards you can purchase for $5.00 that currently have $5.00 loaded on them. Then go into Basha's and pay to load whatever additional amount you want. When you go through the checkout line to pay for your purchases, use the Basha's card to pay. Basha's donates a generous portion of what is pre-loaded on those cards back to our school. The more often you load and use your card, the more our school is given. Come to a VVFFO meeting or contact us at email@example.com to obtain a card.
- Link your Bashas' Card to our school - they have an ID number, visit customer service or mention you want to link your card to a cashier.
- Target - Take Charge of Education - If you have a Target RedCard (Visa Debit OR Credit), you can designate a school of choice and 1% of every RedCard purchase at Target or Target.com will go to that school. As of February 2015, Ventana Vista has received over $9,880.00 from this program - $296 most recently paid in February 2015! Ventana Vista RedCard School ID is 841 - you can assign our school online.
