Fundraising Efforts

Mantua PTA supports our school and extended community by financially sponsoring many programs for both students and staff: field trips, classroom books, technology needs, additional educational resources, family fun events, parent education and assistance to families in need. Funds for such programs are generated through a series of exciting events throughout the year as well as through the generosity of our business partners. Every time you patronize one of the online or local businesses listed below and HERE, Mantua PTA benefits by receiving a monetary donation! Please email Terri Radziewski if you have any questions or ideas.

Earn money effortlessly for Mantua ES while shopping online!

Mantua PTA understands the importance of painless fundraising, so we've scouted out two programs that make raising money for our students a breeze by simply clicking the buttons below before shopping online as you normally do. That's it! No sign up or entry codes are involved—the rest happens magically in cyberspace. Want to simplify the process even further? Bookmark the links in your internet browser to use for future shopping. Help us cast a wider net by sharing the links with friends and family. Anyone, anywhere, who uses these links—even non-Mantua families—can help us raise funds for our students by using the links before shopping online!

Amazon.com

Follow these very specific directions provided by Amazon and a percentage of every purchase you make through Mantua PTA's AmazonAssociates account will be shared with our school. 1) CLICK THE "SHOP NOW" BUTTON BELOW. 2) ADD ITEMS TO YOUR CART. 3) COMPLETE YOUR PURCHASE WITHIN 24 HOURS. If you have additional questions about the directions, click HERE. While AmazonSmile is a great program, the foundation only donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases.
