In order to keep tuition as low as possible, the school budget includes fundraising.  The fundraising programs are simple and take advantage of the spending that school families are already doing to support the school.
The two main ongoing programs for fundraising at the school are the Scrip program, which allows families to buy gift cards to local grocery stores, get the full value back in groceries, and get 5-8% donated to the school; and the Amazon online shopping affiliate program, which allows families to get Samish Woods between 4% and 7% credit for the purchases they make on Amazon.  See the appropriate page for details on each.
