Did you know you can donate to UPWS when you shop on line with Amazon

Set up Urban Prairie as your charity of choice when shopping on Amazon.  Visit http://smile.amazon.com and enter Urban Prairie as the name of your charity at which point you can begin shopping.

Please remember, if you want Amazon to donate to Urban Prairie each time you shop on line, you need to start each shopping session at the URL http://smile.amazon.com. You can typesmile.amazon.com into your browser’s address bar or bookmark it to make it easy to return to AmazonSmile. When you start at smile.amazon.com Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to the charity of your choice.

** Please note that when you select Urban Prairie it will list our Federal Tax ID information with a different address then the school address.  This is currently being corrected but will not effect the donation.


Take Charge of Education®

Target wants to help Urban Prairie! If you have a Target Red Card, designate Urban Prairie Waldorf School as your school. Target will donate up to 1% of your REDcard purchases at Target stores in the U.S and at Target.com. They send the school a check each year! Right now, six parents are signed up for this program and have raised over $1000.00. Can we raise that number this year? Applications are available in the office or at your local Target Store’s Customer Service desk.
