Guffey Charter School Partner Programs
Guffey School has partnered with several organizations which return money or other benefits.
  • AmeriGas/MarGas School Days Program - if you're a customer, bring in your propane receipts or invoices to the school. We receive $0.02 per gallon, up to $2,000 per year, which we can use for any purpose.
  • Box Tops for Education - collect box tops from participating products and the school will receive $0.10 for each one. This raises hundreds for us each year!
  • Sunflower Bank ABC Program - customers have several ways of generating revenue for the school.
  • AmazonSmiles - if you shop Amazon.com, 0.5% of your purchases will be donated to Guffey School. All you have do to is use this link (bookmark it!) when you go to Amazon. It's the same Amazon experience you're used to, but the school receives benefits.
SPCFPD Ambulance Fundraiser
SPCFPD is raising money for a more modern ambulance to handle medical emergencies in the Guffey area. They currently have two very tired ambulances that seem to take turns breaking down so they rarely have a spare when there's a call. The next closest ambulances come out of Fairplay or Teller County and can be a very long wait. Scott Elmore has started a crowd sourced funding campaign for the auxiliary at gofundme.com. For more information contact Scott Elmore or Aaron Mandel.
