Ways to Earn Free Money for Our School

Support Matsumoto with your everyday activities without spending an extra cent! Take advantage of these great deals from our partners, and give back to Matsumoto with every purchase. Here's how...


If you are going to shop online, why not have every purchaseAmazon Smile you make benefit Matsumoto? If you shop at, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to a charity of your choice, which we hope will be Laurelwood! Smiles and kids… what a perfect fit! There is no cap on the amount Amazon will donate, and almost every physical product sold by the company is eligible, which means tens of millions of items. Digital goods are not included, but that may be in the future. Please sign up today. Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to or click on the AmazonSmile box on the left.
  2. Log in using your usual Amazon username and password. If you do not have an Amazon account, please create one.
  3. Select your charity of choice. Go to the bottom of the screen and type “Matsumoto PTA” in the search box under “pick your own charitable organization”, then hit the search button.
  4. Click the “Select” button next to our name. Once you have made your selection, Amazon will remember your choice and return you to the Amazon Smile homepage, where you can shop as you normally do. If you forget to start on, will ask if you want to shop on smile.
  5. Simply by shopping as you normally would, you’ll be creating a donation to help Matsumoto students. There will be no additional charges added to your purchase price because of the charitable contribution.
Remember to use for all your future Amazon purchases. When you do, Matsumoto will continue to receive the 0.5% donation. After you’ve signed up and named Matsumoto as your charity of choice, you won’t have to repeat the process again.

Does Your Company Match Your Donations?

Corporate matching programs are a wonderful way to double your donation at no additional expense to you! Many employers will match your pledge drive contribution if you follow their program guidelines.

Inquire with your company's Human Resources Department, and if your company does match donations... ask about their procedure to request a match - they can vary from company to company.

If you have questions about how to apply for corporate matching, email Matsumoto PTA.

Thank you for your support!
