Fundraising

We are thrilled that Homestead’s generous community continues to donate funds for the enrichment of every student at Homestead Elementary!  The PTCO funded all budgeted expenses as well as many special grants to enhance the education of Homestead students.

The Homestead PTCO 2020-2021 fundraising goal is just over $80,000. 

The PTCO fundraises through the following activities.

  • Homestead HOPS – Held annually in the fall. The 2020-2021 HOPS will be held September 12th, 2020.
  • 100% Homestead – Held annually in February and March.
  • Shop at Amazon:
    • If you are already an Amazon customer, choose https://smile.amazon.com/ and set up Homestead Elementary PTCO as your charity.
    • Now every time you shop at Amazon, go to smile.amazon.com, and all your purchases will support Homestead Elementary PTCO
  • Shop at King Soopers:
    • This program makes fundraising easy by donating to local organizations based on the shopping you do every
      day. Once you link your Card to an organization, all you have to do is shop at King Soopers and swipe your
      Shopper’s Card when you check out. Here’s how it works:
