Once date set - If you are interested, please sign up on the forms outside your child's program and ensure that payment is received in the office prior to photo day.

FUNDSCRIP:

FundScrip is an innovative program that lets you earn cash rebates for your organization based on things you buy everyday like groceries, gas, clothing, entertainment, and other household items.

All you have to do is pay for some or all of your purchases using pre paid GIFT CARDS bought at face value from FundScrip participating retailers and a percentage of every gift card purchased  (up to 15%) is contributed to your group’s fundraising efforts.

The gift cards (like cash in a card) come preloaded and are available in various denominations. As you use the cards, the value of the purchase is automatically deducted from the value stored on the card.  If you don’t use the entire amount, the balance remains on the card and can be used for future purchases. 

A complete list of the gift cards can be found on the following May Order Form (to come soon). You can order your cards on that form. There are also special promotions  for May!  Please submit your hard copy order form to the Centre along with your cheque (made payable to: Campus Child Care Cooperative of Guelph) by noon on Friday, May 12th.  Orders will be ready for pick up on Thursday, May 18th.

We encourage everyone to invite their family members, friends, co-workers and neighbours to participate in FundScrip as well.


MABEL'S LABELS: Looking for labels for your child's clothing, water bottles, bags? Our Mabel's Labels fundraiser is always ongoing.  For more information about CCCCG's fundraising through Mabel's Label's, take a look at the flyer. Otherwise, you can order directly through the Mabel's Label's website.

 

Fundraiser ideas

Here is a brief listing of our ongoing fundraising - if you have any suggestions on fundraising ideas please contact Melissa (email above)

SILENT AUCTIONS 

The auction usually runs in November.

Parent canhelp us meet our goals in one of the following ways:

  • Donate new items (e.g., toys, clothing, etc.) These should be delivered to Dori’s office prior to the auction beginning.

  • Donate your services. Perhaps you have a special talent that other parents would value. For
    example, you might be an accomplished chef willing to deliver a ‘Dinner for Two’ to the highest
    bidder’s home, a great painter, or a gardener. Your imagination is the limit!!!

  • Identify a local business or individual that might be interested in donating services or
    merchandise to a good cause. Tax receipts are available for all donations from businesses
    (and cash donations from individuals). Either contact them yourself or forward your suggestion
    to Dori Cross at 519-826- 6927 or Director@campuschildcare.org

Participate in the auction itself by purchasing an item/service listed.


FAMILY PHOTO SESSIONS 

This generally occurs in early October.

The Daycare Board in currently in the process of selecting a photographer.

Typically there would be an online booking session and the photo shoot would occur at Royal City Park, downtown Guelph. 

A portion of the cost of any pictures purchased is donated by the photographer back to the centre.

Please check back soon for more information.
