FUNDSCRIP - THE SCHOOL FUNDRAISER THAT COSTS YOU NOTHING EXTRA

Dear Parents of KDSS:

Every year KDSS organizes a fundraising program to raise much needed funds. The money we earn helps to pay for ‘extras’ not covered by the school budget.  We provide money for a number of school activities, sports and clubs.

To reach our fundraising goal, we have chosen FUNDSCRIP.   
FundScrip costs you nothing!

Picture this:  You make your usual visit to the grocery store.  You fill your cart and go to the check out. Instead of paying with cash or a debit card, you use a gift card that you purchased through our school. It costs you nothing extra but you just earned money for KDSS.  You can use FundScrip cards to purchase your everyday essentials such as groceries, gas and clothing. You can even use them at restaurants or for a cup of coffee.  Please go to www.findscrip.com/retailers to see the complete list of participating retailers.

How does FundScrip work?

All you have to do is buy gift cards from FundScrip for the stores where you already shop.  You spend the gift cards just like cash and in the process, earn money for KDSS campaigns.

The gift cards are the retailers own cards that are swiped at the cash.  The value of the purchase is automatically deducted from the value stored on the card.  Any remaining balance can be used for future purchases.
