A big THANK YOU to all these companies who supported us throughout the 2017/18 school year! These companies have partnered with us in our fundraising efforts, and donated to our raffles.

Fundraising Information

The preschool is a unique program which aims to provide an enriching play environment for young preschoolers (3 to 4 years old) with the additional benefit of the French language being introduced in a fun and stimulating way.

Tuition fees do not cover the cost of running the preschool. Fundraising is a vital part of our budget and a requirement to be eligible for government grants.

The Board of Directors organize a minimum of 2-3 fundraising events throughout the year, where parents can take advantage of the support of local businesses to raise funds.

Here are two examples how different families may choose to fulfill their fundraising quota:

If you have any questions or wish to order any of these items, please e-mail: fundraising@bflp.org. 

2017-2018 Fundraising Activities

At the beginning of every school year, a team of parent volunteers take on the role of the fundraising team to plan activities, and track each family’s progress. Listed are the activities planned for the 2017/18 year.

We are always open to ideas and suggestions, and may add more fundraising initiatives if we feel they are aligned with our school's culture. Parents will be updated accordingly should there be any updates. Each class is assigned a parent fundraising representative (details in the BFLP Fundraising Parent Handbook) who you will be able to go directly too for any questions or concerns. Or, you may contact your Director of Fundraising.

Important notes:

  1. Pickup needs to be ON May 7th. The orders will be picked up frozen, and there is simply not freezer space to store them. You will be contacted after the order deadline to arrange a pickup time. It will probably be at the school at the end of the morning class and beginning of the afternoon class. 3 year old parents will need to come and pick orders up at that time
  2. Payment can be by cash or cheque to BFLP.
  3. Allergy alert - all products are prepared in a facility that handles peanuts and tree nuts. Nothing can be declared nut free. On the order form it mentioned macadamia chocolate cookies being $12 per bag. That should read macadamia milk - as on the applicable column.
