School Council Fundraisers

School Council Fundraisers
Posted on 05/13/2021

Our school council is excited to launch 2 spring fundraisers. School council supports activities and initiatives at the school such as purchasing library resources, technology, t-shirts for incoming students, subsidizing virtual workshops and graduation activities as well as other initiatives as requested by students and staff.

Fundcrsip

FundScrip is a fundraising program that lets you raise funds simply by purchasing gift cards for your everyday shopping (i.e. groceries, gas, gifts and household items).

When you purchase a $100 grocery gift card, you receive the $100 card, but in addition, a percentage is donated to our fundraising campaign.  School council supports activities at the school such as the library, purchasing t-shirts for incoming students, grad activities and other support as requested by staff and students.

It’s like getting free money, where the only catch is you have to change your method of payment to using gift cards!


HOW DO I SIGN UP?

1. Visit www.fundscrip.com/support-a-group

2. Enter the invitation code: PB8922

 

HOW DO I ORDER?

1. You place orders on the FundScrip website.

2. Orders are shipped directly to an address of your choice for the price of a stamp, roughly one dollar.  Free shipping on card orders valued at over $200.

 

WHICH GIFT CARDS ARE AVAILABLE?

There are over 260 retailers to choose from!  Please see the attached list for an idea of what is available.

 

HOW CAN I PAY?

1. Electronic Funds Transfer - No Fee

2. Online Bill Payment (via your online banking)- No Fee

It can take up to three (3) business days for the payment to be received

3. Credit Card - Donations to HMMS reduced by 1.99% due to credit card fees

 

Here is an example of how your purchase can help our school:

25 families purchase the following monthly - 100.00 gas card, 500.00 grocery card and 200.00 Walmart card.  We have reloadable cards for Esso, Metro/Super C and Walmart and a variety of other retailers.

 

100.00 x 2% =   2.00

500.00 x 3% = 15.00

200.00 x 3% =   6.00

 

23.00 x 25 families = earnings of 575.00 monthly

 

 

We are planning on running this campaign until the end of this school year. We are right now trying to raise some much needed funds to help make this year’s Grade 8 Graduation a special (virtual) event.


Plantables
Plantables is an exciting new startup based in Forest, Ontario that grows healthy, hardy and happy fruit and vegetable plants and ships them to arrive at your door exactly when they need to go into the ground.

That means that no matter how busy you are, how unsuccessful you’ve been at growing plants before or how many little hands want to help out, you’ll be able to grow brag-worthy fruits and veggies in no time. 

All you have to do is pick what plants you want to grow, choose when you want them delivered and wait for your box of garden-ready plants to arrive on your doorstep. 

How does the program work? 

All you have to do go online to plantables.ca and order your plants for this spring and summer, and enter our school code: HMMSPlants. And then spread the word to your friends and family too!

Our school will receive 10% of every order. 

We’re really excited to be launching a fundraiser that involves growing healthy fruits and veggies and spending time as a family instead of selling unhealthy snacks door-to-door, and we can’t wait to see how much we can raise together. 

Thank you for all of your support.
