Our fundraising philosophy Overall, our best source of funds is kids registered and having fun learning at preschool. Being a non-profit organization, “FUN-draising” however is also vital to meeting a budget each school year. Under the direction of the Fundraising Committee, all members participate in a number of events throughout the year. This may include:

  • Thrifty’s Smile Cards. Available to each family, you simply load these cards with funds at the cash register. When you then make a transaction at Thrifty’s, and use the card, a percentage is put towards the preschool.
  • Peninsula Co-op membership # 10400. When you use our number when you shop at the Co-op grocery store, order furnace fuel, or when you fill your vehicle with gas at any of their gas stations, a portion of the transaction is then paid out to Countryside as a member rebate.
  • Year-end picnic & silent auction. This is our largest fundraising event. Everyone is assigned a job or two to help make the picnic successful.

We are also open to some other ways of bringing funds in to support the school. All other fundraising projects are completely optional. We want fundraising to be as simple and fun as possible! No family need feel any pressure to buy books, eat chocolates, sell flowers, etc. If these other projects fit well with your family, feel free to be part of them, if not, no pressure.


Mabel’s Got Your Label

Here’s a good example!  Shoes, coats, backpacks, food containers. All important things, that somehow go missing in the midst of our busy lives! Now you can label everything in your house, so your items don’t get tossed in the Lost and Found Bin!

Visit, and scroll on down to “Countryside Preschool” in the “School / Organization” list. When you buy labels and stickers from Mabel’s Labels, your purchase will automatically credit the preschool, and generates funds that will support our kids. Thank you for your support!
