Specialty Fundraisers

One of our main sources of financial support comes from the annual Education Fund. This drive kicks off in the Fall of each school year, but donations are accepted year round. Please check with your employer to see if they do matching. All contributions are tax-deductible.

Year-Round Fundraisers
In addition to organized fundraising events at Oster, there are many ongoing ways you can support Oster's H&SC earn money with your everyday shopping. Participating in these programs requires no additional out-of-pocket expense, just a few minutes of your time and all our Oster students benefit!

  • Box Tops for Education  
    • Oster H&SC collects Box Tops. Every bit helps! If each of our students submitted just two Box Tops a month, we would collect well over $1,000! They can be turned in anytime to your child’s classroom - each class has it’s own collection box to make it easy for you to raise money for our school. You can also turn them in at the front office: there is a “Campbell’s Soup” collection container by the corner table. Please trim the edges of the Box Top/Label for Education and check for expiration dates before submitting. Click on the images links for more information.
