Philosophy of Fundraising Requirement

Ocean Shore currently sponsors three major school-wide fundraisers a year. Participation in these fundraisers is a commitment obligation for all families. The program suggests a minimum family commitment of $300 per year.

Currently, the three school-wide fundraisers are:


Families register their grocery cards and/or credit cards with the e-scrip program, and designate Ocean Shore as the benefactor. Whenever the family makes purchases from participating merchants and uses their registered cards, a percentage of the purchase total will be donated to Ocean Shore on behalf of the merchant.

Fall Fundraiser

Each Fall there is a major fundraiser that is expected to generate a significant portion of the funds required for the PTO annual budget. In the past, Fall fundraisers have included a carnival, a musical performance, and a Great Day gathering and art show.

Automatic Withdrawal / Automatic Bill Pay or Donation

Each of these options offer simple alternatives for making a financial commitment to the school. You will receive tax credit for all donations. For further information please contact the Fundraising Chair.

Proceeds from these three school-wide fundraisers go directly to the PTO general fund, and comprise the majority of each year's budget.
