“No Scissors Required: Earn Bonus Money for your School with the Box Tops for Education Bonus App” is a sponsored post. Although I was supplied products and/or compensated for writing this post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I have been collecting Box Tops for Education and submitting them (or at least trying to remember to submit them) to my daughters’ schools for nearly 20 years.

Box TopsI work from home and do not have a lot of time to volunteer at school. One simple way for me to contribute something other than time and money (because for me, both are on very short supply) is through the Box Tops for Education program.

Box Tops for Education (BTFE)

BTFE is a smart and simple way for your school to earn money for items they desperately need, but cannot afford. Each eligible school may earn up to $20,000 cash per year from the program.


The best part is the school can use the money for anything it needs! Books, supplies, classroom materials, computers, playground equipment, anything! To date, America’s schools have earned over $868 million according to General Mills.

This is huge considering nearly all schools rely heavily on fundraising to purchase the items that the school’s budget doesn’t–or can’t–cover.

I’ve lost count on how much money we have personally contributed through the BTFE program over the past 20 years, but we averaged submitting 1,000 Box Tops a year.

That is $2,000 we personally contributed to various schools by simply purchasing the items we already use everyday. No expensive cookie dough or wrapping paper to buy, just the cereal (and other items) my kids love and eat every day!

QUICK TIP: Ask your friends and family to save Box Tops for you. This is how we were able to save so many each year.

The problem with clipping Box Tops is I will “put them away someplace safe” and forget about them. I’ve discovered several Ziploc bags of Box Tops, long expired, while unpacking from one of our moves.

Box Tops are collected with the best intentions because it’s a painless way for your school to receive money with little effort from you. But the school only gets that money if you remember to turn in the Box Tops!
