Fundraisers

Scholastic Book Fair

Parents may purchase from a variety of children’s books set up at Finn for about two weeks during the fall. Teacher Wish Lists are displayed for those who would like to purchase a special book for the classroom library. A portion of the sales is given back to the school.

September

Finn Fall Festival        

Games and fun for the whole family    

October

Gift Cards

Families may purchase gift cards at face value through SOS to be used at local retailers, grocery stores, home improvement centers, and restaurants.  SOS orders the gift cards and pays less than face value.  The difference,  generally revenues of 2% - 15% for each card purchased, is where SOS earns revenue.  It’s simple and easy fundraising!  


Gift Card Program fundraisers will be held throughout the year particularly just prior to holidays.
