Ways to Donate

Direct Donation through Square

You can make donations throughout the school year by using our our Square page. Donations are tax-deductible, and 100% goes to Parent Council.

                       Payless/Kroger Community Rewards

Fund Parent Council just by shopping at Payless/Kroger! Go to your Payless app, choose "Rewards" from the menu, then click "Community Rewards." Search and add 'West Lafayette Elem Parent Council INC' as your chosen organization. Payless/Kroger then donates a percentage of your spending each year. 

Box Tops for Education

Box Tops for Education is a super-simple way to earn cash for schools just by buying groceries! You’ll find hundreds of participating products throughout the supermarket. Just scan your receipt with the Box Tops app and you’ll earn for your school!

Staff Appreciation Lunches

Parent Council hopes to re-introduce quarterly staff lunches. If you own or work at a restaurant and would like to donate food, just email WLES Parent Council and we will set a date! Non-restaurant owners can also support these lunches by donating via Square towards any of the quarterly lunch dates. Parent Council will then order the lunch for the staff. 

December Holiday Gift Card/Lunch for Teachers and Staff:

We like to treat our teachers and staff to a special lunch and gift cards during the winter holiday season. Gift cards can be sent to WLES (600 Cumberland Ave.) or dropped at the office. Please make sure the gift cards have your family’s name on it so we can give you thanks!  Families can also donate through Square to support our teachers and staff for the holidays.

Staff Appreciation Gift Basket Give Away (May 2024)

During Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week, Parent Council gives away multiple donated gift baskets. Parent Council accepts any size donations from all companies and business – gift cards, company swag (t-shirts, tumblers, etc.), food items. Email Parent Council for info, or donate through Square, and we can put together a basket for you. This is a great way to show your company pride while supporting WLES staff!


We appreciate any contributions to support the staff and students at West Lafayette Elementary School.  Donations are used for teacher Fast Grants (a way for our teachers to get needed items in their classrooms at no cost to them), monthly staff appreciation events, support staff appreciation, sponsorship opportunities for students to attend field trips and after-school events, Final Fun Day and Staff Appreciation Week. 

Donations can be dropped off at WLES by check made payable to "West Lafayette Elementary Parent Council," or online via the button below.
