Gift Card Fundraiser

The IHMS Parents’ Guild is offering a gift card fundraiser. The gift cards are purchased for their face value, so purchasers do not pay any additional costs – and the companies provide the profits to the school, which can range from 2% to 10% of the gift card values.  It’s a win-win-win fundraiser for the purchasers, the Parents’ Guild, and the children who benefit from the activities supported by the Guild.
