Employer Matching Programs

You might have an employer who matches your efforts. Some have been known to “pay” our school for your volunteer hours; some will match any gift you make to the PTA. It is well worth the time to check and see what yours might offer.

Fred Meyer generously donates a % of your purchases to Capitol Hill PTA. All you do is shop and we earn money for our school. More information »

Lambs Thriftway Recycling

When you use the can and bottle return bin at the Garden Home location (7410 SW Oleson), we get credit for the deposits. Just put them in the Capitol Hill School bin, and they send the school a check!

Scrip

Scrip is a program where you buy gift cards through the PTA. Gift cards include a wide variety of merchants, many of whom you may already do business with. You get the full purchase price of the gift card, the retailer gives a percentage of the gift card value back to the school.

Special Fund Fundraising Events at Capitol Hill

Book Fairs

The Scholastic book fairs are the largest fundraiser for our school library. It’s a great opportunity to get some gift shopping done or contribute a book or two to your child’s classroom. The fair is open before and after school the week before and during fall conference times. This is a great chance to foster your child’s love of reading while supporting the library, so please be sure to stop by and shop the fair!

Dash for Art Dollars

Students gather pledges, then run laps to support our art programs at Capitol Hill. Look for pledge forms coming home in the spring. This year the run will be April 28, 2017.

Decathlon

One of Capitol Hill’s grassroots fundraisers–the Decathlon–is a favorite among students! Proceeds help raise money for two great resources at Capitol Hill, our computer and science programs! The Decathlon is a series of 10 mental and physical tests that each student attempts. Watch for fundraising forms and volunteer info after winter break. The Decathlon will be held on January 26, 2017.
