Help Support Gethsemane Lutheran School
First of all, prayers for our students, families and staff help support the mission of Gethsemane Lutheran Church and School. Your continued volunteerism at the school and associated events allows us to excel at providing the best educational experience for each of our students.
In addition, Friends of Christian Education (FOCE) help to raise funds to support our students, staff and school. Our annual efforts involve no cost fundraising, event based fundraising and other traditional fundraisers.
Below are some of the ways you can help support our school’s mission.
Thank you in advance for your support! GO FALCONS!
Box Tops 4 Education
Our school participates in the Box Tops 4 Education program. How does it work? First, you need to download the app. Once you purchase items that have the box top logo, scan your in-store or online grocery receipt and earn cash for our school. Please scan your receipts soon after purchases since they do expire on the app. To date we've earned over $7,000 for our school through this program! For more info about this program, please visit: http://www.boxtops4education.com/
Together A Greater Good (TAGG)
Our school is listed on Together A Greater Good. To start “TAGGing”, simply download the TAGG app, make a purchase from a participating business, and TAGG GLS. For more info, please visit: http://www.togetheragreatergood.com/
TAGG at Hy-Vee
Our friends at Hy-Vee are participating with TAGG for the annual receipt program. GLS has received 1% of receipts for many years now, so we are glad the program is still going! Hy-Vee stores in Papillion, Council Bluffs, Plattsmouth, Fremont and Omaha participate in TAGG to support schools year-round. This means you can support you school from any of the 17 participating locations. Each participating store is willing to donate up to $1,500 per month through TAGG!
Kroger Community Rewards Program
The Kroger Community Rewards Program is available through any of the Kroger brand stores. This includes Baker's, Dillons, Gerbes, King Supers and many more. One you log into your specific store's account, clink on the Community Reward Program link near the bottom of the page. To add our program, please search for GETHSEMANE LUTHERAN SCHOOL either by name or BB381 and click enroll. New users will need to create an account which requires some basic information, a valid email address and a rewards card.
Remember, purchases will not count for your organization until after you register your rewards card. You must swipe your registered rewards card or use the phone number that is associated with your account when shopping for each purchase to qualify.
Thrivent Action Teams
Thrivent Action Teams is a way for Thrivent members to support GLS. Projects can be accelerated/launched through the $250 of seed money eligible for certain projects. For more info, please visit: https://www.thrivent.com/what-we-offer/generosity/thrivent-action-teams.html
