Support Bethlehem Lutheran School

We appreciate the support from our BLS families who do so much to help offset some of the costs of maintaining an outstanding school like ours. We could never do it without your dedication and support, and we thank you for it from the bottom of our heart.

Fundraisers

Fall-Fest

The BLS Fall Fest is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Fall Fest features fun for the whole family and three foot races: a 5K, a 10K, and a 1-mile fun run. The fun continues with other great activities, such as laser tag, bounce houses, games, retail vendors, and food available from local restaurants. Your donations and sponsorships at this annual community event with hundreds of runners and participants raises several thousand dollars, which goes directly to BLS to be used for playground equipment, audio visual equipment, and more. Thank you for your generous support!

General Mills Box Tops for Education

We receive cash for every General Mills product box top our students turn in. Please clip Box Tops coupons from participating General Mills products on your favorite products that you use every day, and send them to school. We receive 10 cents for each one!

Campbell's Labels for Education

This is a great way for our school to earn free educational and sports equipment for our kids. Just save the labels from any of the hundreds of varieties of Campbell's products, and send them with your child to school. We’ll take it from there.

When school supporters enroll and use their REDcard, Target donates up to 1% of every purchase made with the REDcard to the school of your choice. For community members to participate, all you need is a REDcard and the designation of Bethlehem Lutheran School online or by calling 1-800-316-6142.
