Fundraising News

We currently have one ongoing fundraiser, which is our Indigo Fundraiser. This fundraiser allows members to support GATE students, and our GATE teachers. Shop for things you buy anyway, send non-contact electronic GIFT CARDS, and earn funds to help enhance the GATE program.

15% of the purchase price of a gift card goes to support the work that we do, including funding for teacher professional development and public information seminars and events. And when you use our link to purchase goods from Indigo online, the GPA earns an additional 3%! Explore Indigo’s Easter Shop for books, toys, and more, and then visit our fundraising link to shop.

Gift cards may be used at all Chapters, Indigo, and Coles stores, and online.

See below for details and link to purchase gift cards and shop online.
