Francis Wyman Fundraising Efforts:

Year Long Opportunities - We participate in several programs where you can help out Francis Wyman without donating cash. Details on some of the programs below:

  • Scrip Gift Card Program: What if the Francis Wyman PTO could make money every time you shop and it would cost you nothing? This program lets you order Gift Cards through the school at face value from an extensive list of participating retailers and the school receives a percentage of the card costs from the gift card company.  The benefits are tremendous:

    • No need to leave your home! Gift cards can be sent home with your child.
    • You don't need to pay anything extra for the school to make money.

    Gift cards make great presents too!  Get your shopping done early and help out Francis Wyman. To place an order, fill out the Scrip Gift Card Order Form and turn into the Francis Wyman Office. If you have any questions please contact our PTO Liason Denise Griffin.

  • You can now pay for Scrip orders online using Presto Pay. Please sign into your personal account and review the program. NOTE: there is a small processing fee of 15˘ per order that will be charged to your account when using Presto Pay.

  • WWW.SHOP.COM Program: We are excited to present this opportunity to generate an additional fundraising source for the Francis Wyman PTO which helps fund the valuable programs and services that benefit Francis Wyman students, teachers, and parents.

    This program has the power to be the "fundraising of the 21st century" as more and more people utilize the power of the Internet to shop online. We now have our own website featuring thousands of partner stores like Walmart, Target, JCPenney, Best Buy, Apple, Home Depot, Macy's, Nordstrom, Barnes & Noble and many more!

    When you make a purchase on www.shop.com/franciswymanpto, the PTO receives royalties and you earn up to 35% cash back on qualified purchased. Visit our website at www.shop.com/franciswymanpto to learn how to get started!

  • Target/Take Charge of Education®: A school fundraiser whereas Target donates an amount equal to one percent of purchases made at Target and Target using the Target.com RedCard.com. Francis Wyman has received over $1,200 during the last two years. All you need to do is register Francis Wyman as your school of choice.

  • Boxtops for Education: Families can earn cash for Francis Wyman by clipping Box Tops coupons from hundreds of products.

We also have individual fundraisers that occur once during the year.

  • Genevieve's - Wrap/Gift Drive: Sale starts September 20 and runs to October 4. Family and Friends can order online with shipment directly to home.

  • Coupon Book: Family and friends will love saving with KidStuff... KidStuff Coupon Books are only sold through schools and our school earns 50% profit on each book we sell! Use just a few coupons and save more than the $25 cost of the book. The books are great for gifts too! Your family earns one FREE book worth $25.00 for every 5 books you sell! Books will be available for purchase at the Fall Marketplace or by returning the Order Form with payment to the PTO mailbox located in the main office. Order Forms will be sent home with the students and online in October. If you can’t wait to see the savings, go to the website. Payment is due by November 15. Please make checks payable to "Francis Wyman PTO." If you have any questions, please contact Rose Hatch
