The PTO Fundraising activities allow for the purchase of school equipment, such as classroom smart boards, class field trip transportation, all school assemblies and so much more!
Box Tops for Education
Box Tops from General Mills Cereals, Betty Crocker, and other products can be dropped off in the box in the school lobby. These are collected and redeemed for cash (10 cents per Box Top). This project is ongoing throughout the year. Look for more fun contests between the classrooms, which helped us earn over $1,000 last school year. Be sure to tell family and friends to clip these for us. Check out the list of companies that help us raiser money with Box Tops.
Throughout the school year Costello partners with various restaurants around Troy such as Zoyo, Granite City, and Mod Pizza, just to name a few. During the designated night, 15-20% of each sale goes to the Costello PTO! This is a fun way to have a family night out AND raise money for Costello!
Make free $$ for Costello by doing your everyday shopping. A percentage of any purchases made using your Kroger Club card will be sent to Costello PTO. Anyone can do it! Grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors! Just visit www.krogercommunityrewards.com, click on Michigan and click on "Enroll" or "Re-enroll" to select Costello Elementary as your rewards benefactor! We average OVER $2000 a year just with this program. Registration for this program needs to be renewed ANNUALLY EVERY APRIL. Check the bottom of your Kroger receipts to ensure that Costello is your named organization.
This is a great fundraiser that motivates the children to raise money for their school in a healthy way. For the past two years we have beat our goal that we set. For the 2018/2019 school year our goal was $20,000 and we have surpassed it. There are opportunities to help prior and on the day of the run. We love getting the support from the entire community, the Troy Police Department and the Troy Fire Department come and make the day so special.
Annual Night Auction
The annual night Auction is something that should not be missed! This is the biggest fundraiser for Costello, it takes a lot of hours of planning to make the night so special. The auction will have an auctioneer, live & silent items, 50/50 raffle and so much more!
This is a fun day for parents and students (present and past) to come to the school and just have fun! We have games for children of all ages and of course let’s not forget about the classroom baskets. Every classroom puts together a basket and children can purchase raffle tickets and enter to win the basket.
Another way of supporting the Costello PTO. We welcome cash donations anytime!
Please let us know if you have any ideas for other fundraising events or wish to help coordinate any of those listed above.
