As a parent, it’s normal to wish your children to develop through sport. Exchanging, working together, sharing... so many values around a common passion. But at some point you have to face the fact that this passion for sports comes with a cost. In many cases, you’ll consider obvious expenses such as equipment or registration fees. But there are also training camps, tournaments, travels, fuel and meal expenses. A family can easily spend more than $5,000 a year to support their children's activities. What solutions can you adopt to support your children through sport, while controlling your budget?
Self-fundraising through purchases: the simple concept of FundScrip
Through FundScrip, you can purchase gift cards, which will be used to pay for your shopping. For a $100 gift card, you receive $100 to spend at a retailer. In addition, each of your purchases includes a donation, whose amount varies depending on the retailer. These donations will add up quickly in a fund to finance your sports-related activities. In other words, you fundraise by spending! Since your purchases are part of your daily life, there’s no need to change your habits... except your payment method! This way, you accumulate money quickly, with peace in your mind! FundScrip is here to help you achieve your goal.

Savings to enjoy activities with your whole family
