Search and Give

Search and Give is a site where you can help generate donations for our school by searching the Internet. You simply sign up, select Terra Altaeast Preston School, and use the Search and Give site to search the Web. Notice the incorrect spacing for our school. You will find TAEP spelled exactly as above!

In order to donate to TAEP through this site, you must have a Windows Live ID account and a "Nickname". Follow these simple steps to get started:

Select the Sign In button on the home page.

If you do not have a Windows Live ID* account, you will need to set up an account.

A Windows Live ID is free and allows you to sign in on any site that displays Microsoft Passport Network or Windows Live ID. You can use an existing Hotmail account as your Windows Live ID. For more information and to create an account, go to:

If you already have a Windows Live ID but have forgotten your password, go to the Windows Live ID sign in screen at: and click on the "Forgot your password?" link.

Otherwise, enter your Windows Live ID email address and password and click the Sign In button.

Create a "Nickname" for your account - your nickname is a screen name that will be displayed to yourself and others whenever you are signed in to the site.

Under Browser Settings, check the box to set the Search and Give page as your home page.

Read the Terms and Conditions and select "I Accept" if you agree to the terms and conditions.

Click the Finish button to complete your account set up.

NOW...everytime you search through Search and Give, TAEP will receive a penny! Right now we have 7 contributors and over $14.00. Imagine how much money we could have donated to our school if we ALL used this site for searching.

All donations go to the technology committee for purchasing ink cartridges and toners for your classroom printers!
