Save Big for a Bright Future with Box Tops for Education

Many of our schools here in Baton Rouge participate in the Box Tops for Education™ program, one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs, with over 80,000 k-8 schools participate. My husband is a public school teacher, teaching music students at different schools in the Gifted & Talented program. Though we homeschool, my husband sees and feels the tight budget times our local schools face. In a time when funding is sparse or non-existent, it’s necessary to gain funds through other means, such as Box Tops for Education™. Box Tops for Education™ has contributed over $525 million to participating schools since the launch of the program in 1996.

Our schools have countless needs and this is money for the taking, people!

Music education seems to be at the bottom of the budget totem pole, making it extremely difficult to fund music instruments, music concerts and field trips. Our family knows that collecting Box Tops is one way we can help my husbands school. If you are a homeschool family without a recognized 501(c)(3) tax exempt homeschool association, as we are, this is a wonderful way to pay it forward. Instead of throwing those Box Tops away, donate them to your local public school.
