- About Us
On September 30th we will kick off our traditional Chinook Book fundraiser. Orchestra students and families will be able to sell Chinook Books and Entertainment Digital Cards from September30th to October 31st. We will hand out Chinook Books and order forms at the evening rehearsals for Orchestra A on September 30th and Orchestras B/C on October 14th. This is a great fundraiser, as the items are a worth well over the purchase price, and we get a very good return for our student sales efforts.
Last year, thanks to your great work, we sold over 400 books, raising $400 for student travel!
Chinook Books are filled with valuable coupons for saving at local, sustainable businesses that promote healthy living in our community, such as REI, PCC and Whole Foods Markets, and local restaurants and businesses in your community. There are coupons for ALL neighborhoods, such as West Seattle Thriftway, Secret Garden books in Ballard, etc!!
This year, there is even an smartphone app, so you don't need to carry your book to get savings all over the greater Seattle metropolitan area!!!
Here are a few new Chinook Book merchants:
It’s a great gift! You can order Chinook Books or Mobile Apps for your friends and family in Portland, OR; Minneapolis/St Paul, MN; Denver/Boulder CO; East Bay CA and Silicon Valley/Santa Cruz, CA.
Books are $20 each.
Mobile Coupon Packs are $15 each.
There will be prizes for top Chinook book/apps sellers - to be announced!
We encourage all students to sell, and encourage all families to get involved. All students benefit from each sale! Each student will get one Chinook Book, and an order form. If they don’t sell the Chinook Book they can return it – or let that be the one your family buys for your own use!
FOGO gets 50% of proceeds from Chinook, For each Chinook book we receive $10, and from each Chinook Mobile Coupon pack $7.50.
We’re asking each family to secure orders for 5 books. By reaching our goal of 5 books per family we will raise $5,000.
We encourage families to get involved. Here are some ideas:
Our fundraiser begins Sept 30th and ends October 31st.
If you decide not to purchase the book in your packet, it must be returned in sellable condition by the end date, October 31st, or it will need to be purchased.
If your student sells a large number of books, don't hesitate to contact us, and we'll do our best to get them to you at a time that allows better transportation of books - so students aren't lugging boxes home on the bus!
Make checks payable to: FOGO
