• Raising Funds is Easy!


    What is Shop & Earn? It’s an easy way to earn money for our school without having to dig further into our own pockets. We partner with businesses that contribute a portion of their proceeds to our school when we shop or dine there. If you were going to shop or eat there anyway, why not have a portion of your purchase raise valuable funds for Joaquin Miller? It's a WIN WIN!


    A full list of retailers, offers and details on how to participate can be found below! We ask that every family help us in our fundraising goals by participating in these programs. Consider making it a family effort by recruiting grandparents and friends – anyone can participate and benet our JM PTA!


    If you have questions about the programs below or suggestions for new fundraising partners, please contact the Fundraising Chairs at jmefundraising@gmail.com.
