We’re starting a fundraiser to try to fill our General Fund. This fund will invest all donations so that the proceeds can continue to benefit the school year after year.
The Ninnekah Public School Foundation is now enrolled in the AmazonSmile program, which will donate a percentage of purchases made at smile.amazon.com to the foundation. One the first visit to the AmazonSmile page, users will be asked to choose the charity they support. This link, https://smile.amazon.com/ch/47-4712831, will take users to a login that automatically allows them to generate donations for the Foundation. They can also search for the Ninnekah Public School Foundation by Name or by City.
AmazonSmile offers the same products and prices available on Amazon.com and you use your same Amazon account, but only items purchased through AmazonSmile will generate donations — any purchases made at amazon.com or on the Amazon app will not accrue toward the foundation. AmazonSmile recommends changing all bookmarks and shortcuts to ensure purchases are always made through AmazonSmile. Users who sign in to the AmazonSmile site will receive an e-mail detailing the program and offering hints on how to use the site.
If you are shopping on-line, please take this opportunity to turn that activity into support for our students, school and teachers.
The Ninnekah Public School Foundation has reached an agreement with Verizon wireless to offer special, discounted wireless internet accounts to all full-time faculty, staff and board members of Ninnekah Public Schools. The plan is $45 a month with unlimited data. All new accounts receive either a Verizon home router or a “Jet Pack” portable hotspot. There are no carrier contracts required and no termination fees with these accounts. The Foundation is also working with the school to provide a payroll deduct option for increased convenience for school personnel.
To sign-up for the program, participants will have to complete an enrollments form and pay an initial $45 – the payroll deduct program will begin a month after enrollment.
The Foundation can provide access to test hardware or a representative to answer questions with appropriate lead time. The monthly fee has been rounded-up for simplicity and to guarantee a stable price for several years. Any additional funds will be added to the Foundation general fund, which can be granted back to the school for teacher training, classroom programs and other benefits.
