In addition to tuition, school fundraisers keep our preschool going strong. While fundraising only accounts for a small percentage of the preschool’s overall budget, it is vital to C-W’s financial health.

Contact Melinda Kaiser at if you have ideas or suggestions for special fundraising projects for our Co-op.

Families participate in fundraising in the following ways.

Payback Book Sales

These books are similar to Entertainment Books, but they strive to support local businesses. Many schools participate in this annual fundraiser, so last year we decided to make Payback books an optional fundraiser.  This seemed to work well for families that enjoyed purchasing/selling them.

The sales price is $20 per book, and the school earns $10 from every book sold.

Payback book sales will end September 20th and all Unsold books and money will be due on September 27th.

Holiday Pie Sale

This is a great fundraiser for the fall season! Families will have the opportunity to sell pies, cobblers, and fruits from the Willamette Valley Pie Company. These orders go out in the early Fall and are delivered in time for the Thanksgiving holiday season.

You’ll want to order one or two for yourself and one for someone you care are about! They are delicious!

Pie sales will begin in September and delivery will be Wednesday October 30th.

Family Fun Run

We introduced this exciting fundraiser last Fall in 2018 and it was a big hit! It’s a great way to involve your extended family, friends, neighbors etc. Plus the kids love getting to run and its a great way to help connect families outside of the classroom!

The run will take place at Crown Park and will also coincide with the Fall Festival on Saturday Oct. 5th. Online registration will be available in the fall.

Spring Plant Sale

The Spring Plant Sale is a community wide favorite serving more than just our Co-Op families!  These amazing plants, vegetable starts, flowers, baskets and more come straight from the Newleaf Green House to our school.  We have many families, friends, neighbors and fellow Co-Op supporters who look forward to this sale every year. Plus, it happens just in time for Mother’s Day so it make your holiday shopping a little easier!

This fundraiser will begin in April and the delivery date will be the week before Mothers Day.

Spring Raffle Baskets

In the Spring we will be offering a variety of fun raffle baskets. Tickets will be sold in May and baskets will be raffled off at the Preschool Spring Picnic.

There will be a variety of things to choose from. We plan to have lots of fun activities offered for the kids to do next summer as well as some much needed activities for parents too. Tickets will be $5 each or 5 for $20 and you do NOT need to be present to win! 

We keep our fundraising goal to a minimum because your time is important and we know donation dollars are often spread among multiple children and between various schools and organizations.
