Ways to Give

Gifts for Growth Gala

Join us Saturday, April 1, 2017 for the Annual Gifts for Growth Gala. The evening’s theme “New Life” will showcase Magnuson’s students and their talents while guests enjoy dinner, entertainment, games, and silent and live auctions. The Gifts for Growth Gala is Magnuson’s largest fundraiser and raises funds for enhancements to our school while keeping tuition rates affordable.

Tuition Bucks, SCRIPS

Want tuition bucks? Get SCRIPS! Here’s how it works: Scrip Fundraising is a no-selling program that allows families to raise money. Scrip is just another way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks and credit cards. Simply purchase gift cards from Magnuson at face value and the coordinator will order these at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate. The rate varies from 2%-20% and the difference or rebate amount is split between the family’s tuition account or designated classroom or fund and the Magnuson School.  The gift certificate or gift card (SCRIP) is then used like cash at the retailer, where it’s worth face value. It is just shopping a little differently.   Click here to learn more about the Magnuson Tuition Bucks program.

Amazon Smile

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as you do on The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to MCS. Go to, log in with your information and select “NI Magnuson Christian School” from the list of charities.
