Our Fundraising Partners support us in our work

Parents and supporters of Stong’s can have their groceries delivered to their doors on-island and help support our work at the same time, thanks to an innovative giving program initiated by Stong’s Markets.

Stong’s, one of IPS’s community partners, will deliver groceries to Bowen Island addresses weekly, and parents/faculty can nominate to have 4% of the value of their bill donated to Island Pacific by Stong’s as part of their corporate giving program. The cost to you as their customer remains the same. Simply visit, choose Island Pacific School during the checkout process and they will take care of the rest!

This means that for every $1000 spent, $40 will be donated to IPS.  An average 4 person household spends a minimum of $500 or more on groceries per month. If we have 5 families use Stong’s online shopping, that would earn us $100 or more per month — the more parents that participate, the higher the revenue will be generated for the school!

Mabel's Labels logo

Mabel’s Labels feature many useful products, and let’s face it, kids lose stuff!

If you noticed the lost and found pile at year end, you’ll know – kids lose stuff. Lots of stuff. Labeling everything you send to school/excursions will help to things find their way back home. Mabel’s Labels is one option for personalized labels. These labels can be ordered online and Island Pacific School will receive 20% of all sales.

A parent tells us that including name and a phone number on the labels has helped them reunite with lost hoodies and a jacket thanks to BC Ferries calling to say they had them in the lost and found!

IMPORTANT: When promoting your Mabel’s Labels Fundraiser, you must promote 1 of 2 ways:

Go to and choose “your organization” from the School/Organization list.
Visit, press the “Support A Fundraiser” button and choose “your organization” from the list.

** Don’t share any other links or URLS as we cannot guarantee they will properly track and credit your fundraiser.

Here’s a sampling of their products:

  • customizable allergy alert labels
  • kids medical labels
  • patches
  • clothing/uniform labels

Thanks for helping our fundraising partners support us!
