FundScrip Fundraiser November 2018

This November in preparation for the Christmas season Gwynne School Parent Association will be fundraising with FundScrip!

When you purchase gift cards from FundScrip, you receive the full value of the card and Gwynne School receives a percentage of that value as well (from 2% to 12% depending on the retailer). Everyone wins and it’s a great way to purchase gifts for those hard-to-shop-for friends and family members.

Attached you’ll find a FundScrip order form. There are additional retailers and card denominations available. You can find the additional retailers and additional card denominations on the FundScrip website: or you can download the Long Order Form from the GSPA page of the Gwynne School website: 

You can add retailers to the bottom of the attached form or print off and submit the Long Order form.

Order forms and payment need to be returned to the school by November 21st. Payment can be made with cash or a cheque made out to Gwynne School Parent Association.

Cards should be available to pick up at the school with the Purdy’s orders on December 3rd. Your order will need to be picked up and signed for at the school as the gift cards are like cash and we will not be sending any orders home with students.

Also, if friends and extended family are placing orders, please record which student they are supporting on the order form so that we can group orders for easier pick up.

If you have any questions, please contact Vicki Croft at 780-352-6284 or

Thank you for supporting our school!
