Simply Giving

Simply Giving is Teller’s largest and most effective fundraiser of the year. It is a direct donation program in which friends and family can contribute money to the school through monthly charges to a credit or debit card.

From $10 to $500 per month, Simply Giving is a quick and easy way for all families to contribute to their child’s education and receive a tax benefit.

And it is accessible for out-of-town relatives, too, who otherwise would have a hard time participating in school fundraising events.

Finally, Simply Giving creates a stable revenue source for the school, making budgeting more predictable and additional grant proposals more attractive. There are no door-to-door sales, no repeat visits to neighbors, no asking colleagues, and no hassle. It’s simple: just give.

Contributions to Simply Giving have enabled Teller to:

  • Hire several paraprofessionals to assist teachers in the classroom and ensure each student’s needs are met
  • Hire a part-time PE teacher to enable numerous physical education opportunities for students during the week
  • Fund field trips and transportation to extend the classroom experience

How it works:

  • Set up your desired monthly contribution ($10 monthly minimum).
  • You will receive an email each month notifying you of the charge (as well as it appearing on your credit/debit card statement)
  • Funds are deposited into Teller PTA’s account. No hidden fees or handling charges for you, and the donations are tax deductible.
  • Donations can be changed or stopped at any time. Just log into your PayPal account and edit or cancel your subscription.

Grocery and Gift Cards Program

You may have noticed that our gift card program has grown to include more retailers and restaurants than ever before. The upside is that it’s an easy way to help make money for Teller. The downside is that the PTA pays for them up-front and “floats” the money until the cards are sold.

With that said, we will continue to stock the gift cards box that’s in the front office. However, we’re scaling back on the number of retailers and encouraging families to sign up for

By doing so, the PTA will have more money on hand to help with the needs of the school AND you’ll have more choices of nationwide retailers, restaurants, gas stations, hotels, and much, much more. Signing up is easy. Here’s how:

  • log onto
  • hit the Family Sign Up tab on the left and enter your information
  • enter the Teller enrollment code – 678178ED35761
  • enroll in Prestopay and email Lisa Aiken ( with your approval code
  • once approved, you can order gift cards anytime and when you need them! Payments are deducted from your bank account within 24 to 48 hours for a nominal fee of $0.15 fee per transaction

Please allow 1-3 days for setting up your account. Approval codes need to be generated and processed.

All families who sign up for by November 1st will be entered into a drawing for a free Teller Hoodie (sizes subject to availability).

All families who place an order by October 31st will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Sprouts gift card.

There are some retailers that offer a ScripNow option; where you receive an e-card via email within minutes. Others offer a ReloadNow option, which allows you to add funds to the card before you head to the store. And of course, there are the traditional plastic gift cards that can be mailed directly to your home (shipping charges may apply).
