Parent Committee

All Birchwood families are members of the Parent Committee. As a member it is simple to support Birchwood School by participating in the Gift Card Program, the International Festival and Auction (IFA), other fundraising programs, volunteering to be a part of the committee and more.


Help us Increase Participation in Birchwood’s Gift Card Program by 75%!


Introducing GCP-123!

This fundraising program involves the purchase of gift cards from everyday retailers:

  • Groceries – Heinen’s, Giant Eagle, etc.
  • Gasoline –BP, GetGo, etc.
  • Electronics – Best Buy, etc.
  • Many other favorites – Amazon, Target, Home Depot, etc.

Here’s how it works and, most importantly, how you will be helping the Parent Committee support Birchwood School. Each card is purchased at face value and the Parent Committee gets a percentage for the school.

For example:

  • You pay $25 for a Heinen’s gift card
  • The Parent Committee only pays $24
  • $1 is earned for the school

With the money earned the Parent Committee has voted to help fund teacher training and other worthy causes for the school. Bottom line, your children benefit as we support Birchwood!
