This year we are excited to be partnering with a fun, free, and truly easy fundraiser called Shoparoo! Schools nationwide are already earning hundreds and even thousands every year through Shoparoo and it’s a great opportunity for us to really make a difference this year!


Shoparoo is school fundraising made easy: the free app turns pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school! Yep, it’s that simple. No more cutting labels, selling door to door, or time-consuming coordinating. All you have to do is shop as you normally do, snap pictures of your receipts with the app, and voila Just shop, snap, earn!


Get started today:

  1. Download the free Shoparoo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store
  2. Select our school (Woodbrook Elementary. . . be sure to check to make sure it is OUR address (100 Woodbrook Drive, Charlottesville, VA) from the list.  You can choose to support a specific grade or the entire school.  You can choose to include your name for their “leaderboard” or not.  Your call.
  3. Start taking pictures of your receipts – shop anywhere, buy anything!  Below is a sampling of the stores
  4. Snap pictures of your receipts from any store, big or small, that primarily sell food, health or beauty items to earn Roo Points (cash donations) for your school. Whether you’re shopping at a supercenter, dollar store, or local convenience store – it doesn’t matter where you shop or what items you buy – Shoparoo will make a cash donation for every receipt!

There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo – the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school. Schools with just 40 supporters are earning an average of $1,000 every year. That’s free, easy money that we could be fundraising too. 

5. Snap pictures of all your other receipts to earn entries for your school into Shoparoo’s $1,000 monthly sweepstakes and $15,000 yearly sweepstakes! Each receipt counts as an entry into both monthly and yearly sweepstakes, so spread the word at your school – the more receipts you submit, the greater your school’s chance is of winning.
