Effortless Fundraising

In addition to the Annual Fund, you can donate to the school without digging further into your pockets! There are many “effortless” ways you can donate to the school. When you shop for your family for groceries or the everyday items you need, many of these organizations give back a portion of the sale.

As you know, our receipts from tuition don’t cover the full cost of providing an EBWS education. Like most private schools, we rely on community fundraising to make up the difference! So take advantage of these great ways to increase our school funds and sign up now. It really can be effortless!
