Earn Cash For Your School While Shopping At Spirit Halloween Thru Sunday, October 20, 2013!

What is Spirit for Schools?
Spirit for Schools is an innovative way for communities to raise money for their schools, while experiencing the fun of shopping for Halloween. It's better than any bake sale, it's fun, and it's FREE! The goal of the program is to support K-8 public schools in our communities and allow them to raise funds for programs, equipment and supplies that enhance educational experiences and/or social growth for students. We are accepting the first 75 qualifying organizations, giving them the opportunity to raise up to $5,000 for their school!

Enrollment begins August 26, 2013!

How does it work?
Shop in-store or online through October 20, 2013 and save 10% on your purchase and earn 10% for your school. Enrollment begins Monday, August 26, 2013. Enroll your organization online and receive a customized coupon which contains a unique identifier automatically linking all purchases back to your school for the 2013 school year. Only one organization per school is eligible to enroll. It is up to the enrolled organization to distribute their coupon however they deem appropriate. An organization may raise up to $5,000 for their school. Coupons cannot be combined with any other promotional offer nor can it be applied to previous purchases, taxes, or shipping.

Who is eligible?
Any qualified non-profit organization affiliated with raising funds for a K-8 public school who enrolls by October 4, 2013, including Home and School Associations, Parent/Teacher Organizations or Booster Clubs.

Steps to be successful
The key factors to success with the Spirit for Schools Program are communication and distribution. Once you receive your coupon, it would be to your benefit to spread the word on a large scale. You can distribute the flyer in a number of ways:

  • Attach to school monthly newsletter
  • Print for parents for Back to School Night
  • Distribute to faculty and staff
  • Flyers at sporting events
  • Email parents and school employees
  • Distribute to PTA, Home School Associations, Booster Clubs, etc.
  • Post to your school's Facebook wall or other social media outlets
  • Place on school or organization website
  • Include in morning announcements
  • Run in local newspapers/TV stations – a lot of media will offer free ad space for fundraising
  • Print and distribute to local businesses

The coupon is valid at any Spirit Halloween Superstore, and www.SpiritHalloween.com and can be used by anyone. Communicating this to the parents is important so they then can distribute the coupons to family members and coworkers.
