Gift Card Fundraiser
Welcome back to another great year at W.D. Ferris Elementary School! We will be conducting a variety of fundraising activities this year again to enhance our children’s education at Ferris.
In the past, funds have been used for items and activities like iPads, interactive projectors, hip-hop dance lessons, theatre performances, scholarships for Ferris alumni and the D.A.R.E program. One of our goals this year is to begin upgrading our playground, a project which can cost anywhere between $40,000 - $130,000.
This year we are excited to introduce a new, on-going fundraising program that will not cost you one penny, and raise much needed funds for our school. The PAC purchases shopping (gift) cards from large, well known retailers at a discount and then resells these cards to you at face value. The PAC keeps the difference as a fundraiser.
Some of the participating retailers are: DAIRY QUEEN, Superstore, Safeway, T&T, MarketPlace IGA,EWalmart, The Bay, Home Outfitters, Sears, London Drugs, Home Depot, Rona, Esso, Chevron, Petro-Canada, Shell, Canadian Tire, Chapters, Save-On Foods, Best Buy, Shoppers Drug Mart, Starbucks, Staples, The Gap, Old Navy, Winners, Cineplex Odeon, M&M Meat Shops, White Spot, The Keg, Cactus Club, Subway, Boston Pizza, and iTunes. The average return per merchant is 2-3% so every time a parent makes a purchase of $100 worth of shopping (gift) cards, Ferris receives $2-$3 dollars.
