Shopping Overview

There are so many ways to turn your shopping dollars into cash for APG. When we all use these programs regularly, money adds up quickly. Last year we raised over $5,000 through passive giving programs. We’d like to see that number grow this year, so let’s get shopping!

Amazon Smile

APG earns a percentage of your purchase when you ① go to, ② sign in to your Amazon account, and ③ select our school as your charity (see below). After the first time you select our school, it will be your default charity each time you shop on AmazonSmile. TIP: Don’t forget to bookmark the link, which includes an affiliate tag to earn the school a little extra.

How to select your charity: Click on Your Account, scroll down to the Settings section, select Change Your Charity, and do a search for Giannini. Once you’ve selected our school, under the search bar, you should see a note indicating that you are supporting A P Giannini Middle PTA, like this:

A.P. Giannini Jaguars

Buy some school schwag! The PTA sells APG spirit gear at many school events. But you don’t have to wait — you can order spirit gear anytime! Shop online or fill out an order form and leave it with the main office secretary along with payment. Your order will be delivered during your student’s homeroom class. Go APG Jaguars!

Sloat Garden Center

Shop at any Sloat Garden Center location during APG’s six annual Growing Up Green weeks (see dates here), mention APG, and we’ll receive 10% of purchases back in the form of a Sloat gift card, which can go towards APG’s beautification projects, fundraisers or classroom activities. The school with the highest participation will receive 20% of purchases back. Just mention A.P. Giannini to the cashier – it’s that simple!

Sports Basement

Join the Basementeer program and choose A.P. Giannini as your beneficiary. You will get 10% off your purchases and APG will get 10%. Last year our school earned more than $500 through this program! 

Sports Basement is an outlet sporting goods and outdoor store selling the best brands at basement prices. Visit their warehouses for brands like The North Face, Burton, Asics, Adidas, Nike and Under Armour all at 10–60% below retail.
