Passive Fundraising

Passive fundraisers are another way to support Magellan Partners in Education (MaP) and the Magellan Charter School. They often ask families to register and designate what school or non-profit organization they would like to support, and do not cost any extra money on behalf of Mariner families. Below are passive fundraising opportunities for MaP and Magellan in which we currently participate.

  • Box Tops for Education
    The Box Tops program is changing to an online program where Box Tops are scanned through their mobile app. You can download the Box Tops app (listed as Box Tops for Education) from the App Store, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products. The app will automatically calculate MaP’s Box Tops earnings online and will send the school a check twice a year! There are still Box Tops to be clipped from products! Box Tops can be turned in at the front office. Please include your student’s grade for the Box Tops grade level contest.
