There are many different ways to raise money for Headwaters in your day-to-day activities. This type of fundraising is called passive fundraising, and can be a powerful tool if enough people participate. Headwaters currently participates in several programs that are listed below. Please bookmark them (especially the Amazon link) and use them often!
This is a direct link to our Amazon Associates site. It looks like your regular Amazon interface, but if you begin your shopping at this link each time (bookmark it!), it tracks your purchases and gives a percentage back to the school. The average percentage given back each month is between 4% and 8.5%, depending on what types of items and how many people use the link in a particular month. Certain items earn an even higher percentage (instant videos, game downloads, magazine sales). These can really add up if we all use this link! Note: Headwaters also participates in the Amazon Smile program, but we earn a higher percentage from the Amazon Associates link and therefore ask that you use that whenever possible.
