Please explore and participate in these methods of fundraising, and help reduce the need for selling.

Campbell’s Labels for Education

It is as simple as collecting the labels and sending them to the academy with your child.
Important: Campbell’s no longer accepts front panel product labels as proof of purchase. In most cases, you need to save the UPC off the paper label or the lid off bottles and jars. Please click on the link above to make sure you are saving the correct proof of purchase.
