About Our Fundraiser
Discovery Christian School
The Changemaker Initiative promotes giving, leadership, and ‘making change’ in our school community. We are excited because it is an EASY and CONSISTENT way to raise funds, but also encourages our students to be CHANGEMAKERS in their community. Collectively, our change can make a big difference!
It’s simple: Sign-up a credit or debit card, shop anywhere & impact our community.
Reason For a Fundraiser
The Changemaker Initiative is a contactless alternative that requires less work from parents and faculty than traditional school fundraisers! Discovery Christian has funding needs to expand our influence and continue to improve our campus. Our fundraising initiatives allow us to maintain attractive tuition costs, while continually improving our educational experience. Your support is vital to the development of our future leaders!
What Will Money Go To?
Your money will have a big impact on our student experience. It will be used to:
- finish covered walkways, so students can navigate our campus safely
- renovate a vacant building on our campus into new classroom environments
About Change Round-Up
What do you mean by “Round-Up”?+
“Round-up” is a term used to refer to your spare change after making a credit/debit card transaction. For example, if you bought lunch for $7.61 on a credit/debit card that is registered for change round-up, the corresponding change it would take to round-up to the nearest dollar, $0.39, would be donated directly to the school.
How much will be donated each month?+
The change from your everyday purchases will vary month to month. However, you will have the ability to set a monthly cap.
Are My Donations Tax Deductible?+
Donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law, just like a normal donation to a tax-exempt nonprofit organization.
How Are You Keeping My Credit Card Information Secure?+
We use Stripe as our payment processor, the same company that does payment processing for Amazon, Facebook, Lyft, and 100,000 other organizations. Only Stripe has access to your credit or debit card number.
