Fundraisers

Ongoing ways you can support our schools

In addition to sponsored events and activities, here are the fundraisers throughout the year that help support our students, teachers, and the whole Fountain Hills Unified School District. We hope you will take advantage of these “fun” fundraisers!

EPI School Supplies

Our parents love the convenience of being able to order the exact school supplies that their students need, while also raising money for the school! If we reach our sales goal, then EPI will donate $200 to our school, so every order counts. This fundraiser happens at the end of the school year for orders for the following year. See the event information here for details on how to place your order and important dates.

Sees Candy Drive

 This is a great way to purchase gifts or show your appreciation, all by raising funds for the PTO! Orders can be taken from friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers. A perfect gift for business associates! Famous American-made deliciousness with no added preservatives, See’s is easy to sell because people love the candy!

Holiday Store

This is by far a favorite event for our students! They love being able to choose gifts for the very special people in their lives. And it’s a great fundraiser for us too! The Holiday Store is provided for grades Pre-K through 8th grade with items priced from $0.25 up to $10.00. Parents can help designate amounts for their children to spend on themselves, family and friends. They will have time to shop during specified classroom times with their teacher as well as before school and during lunch time. We encourage family members to come with their children before school to shop as well.

Scholastic Book Fair

The Annual Scholastic Book Fair is a much-anticipated event for the entire district. Each year we choose a theme and decorate the libraries so that the students feel like they are stepping into a whole new world. They get so excited about the new books that will be available to them year after year. Make sure to also join us for our Parent Shopping Night and Snowball Breakfast.

APEX Fun Run & Drive

The APEX team of athletes does the heavy lifting and teaches PBIS-based leadership lessons. Each day during the Drive, they combine fitness, fundraising and leadership into a powerful united event that builds students’ character education. There is an easy online platform to collect pledges using your child’s specific access code that will be given out the first day of the Drive. You’ll have access to the platform throughout the two weeks so sponsors can make contributions on behalf of your student.

Did you know that Arizona law allows taxpayers to receive a dollar for dollar tax credit of up to $200 for individual filers and up to $400 for married filers for contributions made to FHUSD schools? You can claim the tax credit when filing your Arizona State Income Tax return. Your tax credit can be used for tutoring, field trips, enrichment programs, athletic programs, or any program we have available at our schools.
