Please contact Jennifer Cobb at fcstarssoftballfundraising@gmail.com with questions on the following fundraising opportunities:

Concessions

We have a strong partnership with Ovations which handles the concession opportunities at Colorado State University events, as well as at the Budweiser Events Center. The CSU events are at the volleyball, basketball and football home games. Please email Jennifer listed above to sign up for work.

This relationship is very important to us.  If somebody signs up, we expect them to be there!  Our updated policy for working concessions is below:

If you are a no show for your scheduled event your softball account will be charged the $50.00 no show fee. 

Also, if you need to get a shift covered please try to do this with other members of your family or team.  If you have tried all options and cannot find anyone to cover, please give us 5 days’ notice before your event. You can call/text at 970.833.8521 or email me atfcstarssoftballfundraising@gmail.com   Jen will acknowledge your message as soon as she gets it.  If you don’t hear from her within 24 hours please confirm that she has received it.

King Soopers Re-loadable Cards

The Fort Collins Stars offer King Soopers reloadable gift cards! This has got to be one of the best and easiest fundraising activities out there!

The King Soopers Community Rewards Program has changed drastically over the last couple months.  A statement with a summary of account payments will no longer be sent out to organizations due to consumer privacy laws. 

Our payout amount is not a consistent 5% – it is now a “percentage of spending when compared to all others enrolled”…the payouts have been lower, but is still a great program! 

When you view your account, it will only be viewable during the current quarter – once the quarter is over, the balance resets and the previous quarter cannot be retrieved.  

What this means for you: 

Please email fcstarssoftballfundraising@gmail.com a screenshot or picture of your current quarter account balance (January-March, April-June, July-September, October-December) prior to the quarter ending – AGAIN – it will reset the FIRST day of the new quarter.  You can view your account balance by logging into your King Soopers account and selecting community rewards.  Your balance is in the lower right-hand corner.  This will need to be done every quarter (we will try to send reminders) in order to get a direct credit for your account statement.  

If you do not send us verification of your account balance, we will not be able to direct-credit your account.  However, your “donation” will be put to good use within our organization!

Great Lakes Scrip Center Gift Cards

Get a rebate on things you’ll buy anyway! The Scrip program is a company that issues national and local retailers where many of us already shop. These merchants want to support non-profit organizations, and in return ask you to support them by shopping with scrip cards at their stores. You can use scrip cards to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you earn revenue for your daughter’s account.

First, check out the list of retailers that are offered through the program and contribution percentages by logging on to www.glscrip.com and click on the Retailer List to get the most of up date list. Some retailers allow you to pay an in-store credit card with these fundraising cards, while others have restrictions on the amount of cards you can use when redeeming them on-line, so please check the “fine print” on their website.

To register, go to www.shopwithscrip.com. Click on the get started tab, then register on the left hand side. Complete the registration form as indicated. Where it says Student and Teacher, please type your daughter’s name (next to Student) and her coach’s name (next to Teacher).

Once you have registered, you will be asked for an organization code, which is 3E2C514C16589. You are now ready to shop! When you are done shopping and you submit your order, you can pay directly on the site. An email is then generated with your printable e-card that can be used at the retailer you have purchased for.
