Passive Fundraising


Passive Fundraising is an easy way to get involved and help LCM earn money often at no cost to you



We have a number of passive fundraising opportunities to help us reach our budget goals this year, and most require just a few "clicks" from you! Thank you for helping provide the best educational experience for all of our students! Learn more about Why We Fundraise.

Here are Some easy ways you can help earn "free money"
for LCM:

1. Shop at Amazon Smile! Simply go to and designate "La Costa Meadows Parent Teacher Organization" as your charitable organization. Then shop as you would normally do and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchases to our school! Your Amazon account does not change, and the products and prices remain the same.
2. Collect Box Tops and scan your shopping receipts! Scan receipts using the Box Tops for Education App. Scan all your receipts from grocery stores, Walmart, Target, Costco, CVS, etc. to see if you have earned Box Top money for LCM. By scanning all your receipts within 14 days of your purchase LCM will get paid 2x a year. Clipped Box Tops will still be honored through their expiration dates. So until all those Box Tops that are still on packages expire, keep clipping, AND we get to “double-dip,” meaning you can scan your receipt and send in the same box top if you clip it, so they can be counted twice. Whoot! Whoot! Send your clipped Box Tops in when we announce our Box Tops Collection time. Also, if you register your name at, our school receives $1 for each new registration.
3. Earn money for LCM when you shop at Shutterfly and Tiny Prints. Shutterfly will donate 8% of any order back to LCM. Click on the HERE and start shopping. Please keep an eye out for emails from your PTO about special offers and sales throughout the year!! 
4. Does your company do corporate matching? Many companies offer a charitable giving program where the organization will match donations made by employees. So, if you donate to the WAVE Fundyour company will "double the donation" by also writing a check in the same amount to the WAVE Fund! Matching programs are offered by many companies around the world (and many here in San Diego County), and millions of people work for organizations that match donations from employees. It's often as simple as asking your Human Resources department if they participate in a charitable giving program. 
5. If you're shopping at OfficeDepot or OfficeMax provide the cashier or enter at checkout, LCM's ID#70006497. LCM will receive 5% back in credits.
