Fundraising – FundScript

Bright Starts’ is trying a novel approach to raise funds for books, toys and resources for our children’s classrooms. We are selling gift cards for retailers that you shop at every day (Zehrs, Sobeys, Food Basics, Canadian Tire, Winners among many others) and a portion of every gift card sale comes back to Bright Starts. It’s called FundScript and there are no extra costs to you or to Bright Starts. Since gift cards equal cash, you will still be able to use coupons and collect any reward points the stores offer.

While you could certainly buy the gift cards for gifts, Bright Starts will benefit the most if you buy them for your everyday shopping at grocery stores, gas stations and other major retailers.

Here’s how you can easily participate:

  1. Complete the order form with the gift cards you want to buy.
  2. Return the form and cheque made payable to Bright Starts (cash is fine too).
  3. Bright Starts will place a group order every month and your gift card order will arrive within a week.
  4. Check the white board in the front hall to see when gift card orders arrive and pick them up from the office (Karen).
  5. Use your gift cards during your regular shopping trips and support Bright Starts to purchase new toys and books for your child’s classrooms.
  6. If you would like to receive the same cards, please highlight the cards that you would like on a reoccurring basis and provide a postdated cheque for each additional month.

This is an easy way to do what you already do (shop for groceries, clothes, gas etc.) and support Bright Starts with minimal effort. It’s easy. If you would like to participate please have your completed order form and cheque into the office by the 15th of every month.

We’re happy to answer of your questions.

Thank you for your support.
