If you are looking to raise funds for your swimmer’s account consider FundScrip, a gift card program offering over 100 cards from various retailers.  You will be able to shop their list from the comfort of your own home, place your order online, choose your payment option and then have the cards shipped directly to your home.  You may order as often as you like and 100% of the profit from cards ordered will go directly to your swimmer’s account.  
How Does It Work?
1.  Logon to  FundScrip.com
2.  Click on Support a Group in the top right hand corner
3.  Enter our invitation code:  EKFMVB
4.  Enter your contact info to set up your account and you are ready to shop.  One little quirky thing in this section.  In the last name box, please put a hyphen after your last name and then list your swimmer's name(s).  This will help to ensure the proper swimmer’s account is credited for the commission.  It is particularly important when your name is different than your swimmers or when we have multiple families with the same last name.  You would follow this same procedure if other family members or friends wish to place orders online to support your swimmer.
Payment Options:
Electronic Funds Transfer - There is no fee for using EFT as your method of payment.  There is a form attached that would need to be filled out prior to using this option.
Online Bill Payment - There is no fee for using Online Banking as your payment option.  Before choosing this option you should ensure your bank lists FundScrip as a payee.  Most mainstream financial institutions do.  Cards are not released until FundScrip receives the funds from the bank.
Credit Card -  NOT RECOMMENDED.  There is a service fee of 1.99% charged for all purchases by credit card.  This will be deducted from your commission.  So if you are ordering a card with a 2% profit, it will be wiped out by the service fee.
Please Note:  The club is continuing to offer Sobeys/Safeway, Superstore/Independent, Tim Hortons and Booster Juice cards through Candace Peace  peace_candace@hotmail.com.  You will receive a better discount by ordering through Candace than you will through the FundScrip program so I would suggest you continue purchasing those cards through her (I know I will be).
