As many of you are aware, every fall our school runs a big fundraiser to raise money for our athletics program. This year we have chosen to change our fundraiser entirely. This year’s fundraiser is through a company called Fundscrip. FundScrip is a Canada-wide fundraising program that lets you raise funds by simply purchasing gift cards for your everyday shopping (ie. Groceries, gas, gifts, household items, etc). When you purchase a gift card, you receive said gift card, but in addition, a percentage of the gift card value is donated to our fundraising campaign.
For example: Fundscrip will donate to us 10% of all Pizza73 gift cards sold. If you buy a $100 gift card, our school will receive a $10 donation.
So, why the change?
Over the last couple years we have repeatedly heard from our parents that our Discount Cards Fundraiser was a burden for each family. While many were concerned with their children going door to door, it was the overwhelming fact that the Discount Cards did not cater to the needs or wants of the community (ex: the Rona discount was only good in Medicine Hat).
With this new fundraiser:
- You’re buying cards that you and your family will actually use
- It is accessible to family and friends from all over Canada, not just in and around Coalhurst
- It’s Covid Safe - meaning you don’t have to go door to door, and there is no paper transfer.
