Fundraising

SUPPORT BAM!


Giving Campaign - BAM PTA's Giving Campaign is our biggest single fundraiser and began in the 2006-2007 school year. Check out their website!

Annual Starry Night Auction - BAM's adult-evening fundraiser is an event you don't want to miss. Enjoy delectable food and drinks, bid on a myriad of wonderful items, get-aways, and experiences, all while meeting other BAM parents and friends AND supporting BAM! Join in on this fun community building event. Who knows? Maybe you'll leave with a beautiful necklace, a cooking class or that weekend get-away. Look for Starry Night information from the committee starting in January and contact them to help!

BAM Runathon - The Runathon happens in the fall and is a super fun and healthy way for kids to help fundraise for BAM. Students collect pledges from family and friends and run or walk laps on their designated day the week of the Runathon. Look for information about this event at the beginning of each school year.

BAM Jam - Each fall, BAM families gather at BAM on a Sunday afternoon for the super fun BAM Jam Carnival. Kids enjoy carnival games, face painting and henna, cake walks, and food and this carnival raises funds for BAM!

eScrip - eScrip is a hassle-free way for BAM to raise money through every day purchases. You spend money by credit/debit card as you would normally and a percentage of each purchase is sent to BAM. It's that easy! Just register with eScrip and then just start shopping: 
1) Go to http://www.eScrip.com and click where it says "Sign up - it's free!"
2) Designate Berkeley Arts Magnet School, eScrip Group ID 137634981 to receive your contributions.
3) Once you're registered, you can register your grocery club card from a participating merchant and your debit/credit cards. Or, just start shopping at eScrip's online mall. As long as you start your shopping from the eScrip page, BAM will get money. That's it!

Amazon Smile - Shop from BAM's designated Amazon Smile page whenever shopping at Amazon and raise money for BAM!  When you start your shopping from this Amazon Smile page, a percentage of your purchase goes to BAM PTA!

Box Tops for Education - You've seen them on your cereal boxes; what are they? Box Tops for Education is a program by General Mills that lets you easily give money to your school by simply cutting out the box top and turning it in. For every one box top we send in, we get at least $.10. That may not seem like much, but if everybody does it, they sure add up. You can find the Box Tops folder in the office, just clip them out and send them in, the PTA will do the rest!

T-shirt sales - BAM PTA will occasionally sell sweatshirts and t-shirts with a design created by BAM students. Get some school spirit for the whole family and support BAM.

Grantwriting -We need people on our grant writing committee! Contact VP of Fundraising Heather Gilbert at hmgilbert6@gmail.com.
