Support Our School

Support Our School 
One of the key roles of the PAELC HSA is fundraising to support school students and teachers.  We have several fund raisers throughout the year (Check Writing Campaign, Healthy Kids for Education Day, monthly restaurant nights), however there are many areas where you can help raise funds with little effort.

PAELC Home and School Association's financial commitment helps to support students and teachers throughout the school year.  In the past, the HSA has funded school wide assemblies, bussing for field trips, new playground equipment,  individual teacher and classroom support as well as student initiatives (Field Day, snacks, activities for Cozy Cubs reading night) and support for students with limited means.

Take a moment to review the list below and thank you in advance for your participation in any or all of these initiatives.

Shop with RaiseRight 

PAELC HSA is using an organization called “RaiseRight” to sell gift cards from over 700 brands.

 Parents can buy digital or physical gift cards, through the website or the mobile app “Raise Right.” Each gift card has a certain rebate percentage (2%-18%). You pay full price up front and the HSA receives the rebate. Twice a year, we write you a check for 50% of the rebate you earned. The HSA keeps the other 50% as part of our fundraising efforts.

Their mobile app allows you to track your gift cards and receive the digital cards within a minute. You can also ship physical gift cards either to your home for a fee or to the HSA coordinator for free; order by third Friday of the month and coordinator will distribute by first week of the following month. Use the info below to enroll:

What is AmazonSmile?
It is a simple way to support the HSA every time you shop, at no cost to you. AmazonSmile is available at and can be activated in the Amazon Shopping app for iOS and Android phones. Prices are the exact same as the regular Amazon website but AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the HSA. Be sure to select “Phoenixville Area Early Learning Center Home and School Association” as the charity.

How do I shop at AmazonSmile?
Go to or activate AmazonSmile on your Amazon Shopping app on your iOS or Android phone (found under settings in the app). When you are using the app, always check for the “AmazonSmile” logo to ensure you are activated for AmazonSmile.

Box Tops for Educations
BTFE  is now digital, no more cutting physical Box Tops off products you buy. Participating products will show a small image on the product that says “Scan your receipt.”  Download the Box Tops mobile app, setup an account, select PAELC and scan your receipt for the school to earn credit for each Box Top.

General Donations
Your contribution makes a difference, no matter if it is $5 or $50. Participation is simple…write a check and you’re done! No gift-wrap, no candles, no pizza. Please consider making a difference for every student by making a family donation to PAELC Home & School Association.  We want our students to have the best education available and programs that turn a good education into an outstanding one. That’s where PAELC Home & School Association comes in. It helps fill the gap between what the PASD education budget covers and needs for our children.

You can write a check and mail to PAELC or Donate via Venmo

Company Matching

Please note that a portion of our fundraising each year also comes from company matching donations (e.g. Vanguard). If your company does company matching, please let one of the HSA officers know!
