No Sale Fundraiser






Lights! Camera! Action! Give!


Roll out the red carpet!


Only 3 more days until Give to the Max Day!


Since 2003, the No-Sale Fundraiser has been the primary funding for our PTA's to donate to our Hale Elementary and Field Middle Schools.  We have raised about $30,000 per year for our schools. This year our goal is $40,000, which is $20,000 per school, and about $35 per student.

 Thanks for generous donors who already donated we have raised just over $4000 already! We haven't won the daily Golden Ticket but we still have 3 days to try. 

 Let's talk strategy for this fundraiser:

 You can choose to donate today, or any day leading up to Nov. 16 and then we have a chance to get a $500 golden ticket each day 

 You can save your donation for Nov 16 to add to our total and help us win a $5000 prize for being first place

 You can save your donation for the POWER HOURS of  6:00 -7:00 am and 9:00 -10:00 pm to help us win an additional $1,000

 You can share this information with your family, friends and neighbors so they can donate. Remind them you will NOT be asking them to buy wrapping paper or cookie dough and 100% of their donation will go back to Hale and Field

 What strategy are you going to do?

 How to Donate:

  • To roll out the HALE red carpet donate to HALE
  • To roll out the FIELD red carpet donate to FIELD

All donations received now through midnight on Nov 16, which is the official "Give to the Max Day" count toward the prizes given from GiveMN.  

 Did you know? 

  • Money that is raised from the No Sale fundraiser directly benefits our

schools -- which helps cover the cost of art and technology, technology licenses, 4th Grade band at Hale, Field Science Bowl, fans for the hot weather at Field. At Hale money raised has been used for new tables and chairs, storage containers and learning manipulatives for kindergarten. 

  • Hale PTA provides classroom stipends of $5000 each year
  • Field PTA provides each grade level teaching team with a stipend of $4000 each year
  • 100% of your donation is tax deductible.
  • 100% of the donations received (minus transaction fees) go straight to support our schools Prizes 

Plan to give in the Hale & Field Power Hours - 6:00 -7:00 am and 9:00 -10:00 pm to help us be the organization with the most donations during this hour where we could win an additional $1,000!

 The top 10 small non-profits receiving the most contributed dollars will be awarded a $500-$5,000 prize grant!

 "Golden Ticket" prize incentives will be randomly selected each hour on Give to the Max Day - Nov 16.

  One $10,000 Super-Sized Golden Ticket will be awarded, drawn randomly from all donations made NOW to Thursday Nov 16.

 One $500 Golden Tickets will be awarded each day for those EARLY givers up until midnight on Thursday Nov 15. 

 Friends & Family Donations

After you donate, forward this email to your friends and family and ask them to donate in Hale & Field, too -- our no-sale fundraiser is easy to support, and we don't ask you to buy or sell stuff you don't need for way too little margin.

 Employer Matching Donations

Remember to check with your employer for any matching funds, and send them to Melanie Faulhaber at She can help get them approved allocated to the right school.
