At McGuffey, we try to make fundraising as easy and ethical as possible. We’ve made a concerted effort to find ways to raise funds with the things you’re already doing in your everyday life. No wrapping paper, candy or candles.

Starting in 2022, Ohio has a new tax law that allows full state tax credits for donations up to $750 every year starting in 2022. For more details go here. Help us reach our goal of raising $50,000 by April 1 2024.
Many of us use Amazon.com to purchase items we can’t buy in Oxford. Simply start your session at the McGuffey Amazon Smile link, and use Amazon Smile. Share this link with friends and family. Don’t forget to use this link during the holiday season! For directions to set up your Amazon phone app to default to our Amazon Smile account, go here.
Every time you use your Kroger Plus card a percentage of your purchase will be donated to McGuffey! If you don’t have a Kroger Plus card, they are available at the customer service desk at any Kroger.
To create an online account and register your Kroger Plus card for the Community Rewards Program start here.

Shop Local Card
McGuffey sponsors a Shop Local Card. This is a card that sells for $15 and offers discounts to local businesses for a full year. While you support local commerce, the purchase of the card supports McGuffey and several non-profit groups in our community. These cards make a great gift for a birthday or holiday, or to welcome a new family to town—or simply sell the cards to your neighbors and co-workers! Stop by the office for more information.
We also have a few special events, like Trivia Night and our annual SOAR walking/running program and the Read-a-Thon, that make fundraising meaningful and fun.
Gifts and Donations
You can also support McGuffey by monetary donations. You can choose to donate to a specific event, in memory of Janet Kretschmer or set up a monthly donation. If you are an Ohio taxpayer we highly recommend you check out our Scholarship Fund which offers the possibility of a dollar-for-dollar tax credit.
