Platte County Education Foundation 2016 Major Saver Fundraiser
The Platte County Education Foundation sells Major Saver cards as a fundraiser to support the Foundation during the fall. Proceeds directly benefit our schools and the Platte County Education Foundation. The Foundation gives back to the PCR-3 community by awarding annual pre-K through 12th grade classroom and building site grants, as well as senior scholarships.
These cards offer 20 buy-one-get-one-free or other offers from area businesses. Two cards are available for $15 each; one featuring businesses in Platte City (north) and one featuring businesses along the Barry Road corridor (south). This year the fundraiser raised more than $22,000, with nearly $15,000 going to the Foundation and $7,500 going back to the schools who participated in the fundraiser (one-third of the revenue from each card sold returns to the student's school who sold the card). Totals for each school from this year's Major Saver fundraiser are shown below.
