School Spirit Pays makes it easy for businesses to make a difference in our community by supplementing local school funding. They do it without additional cost to businesses, consumers, or taxpayers. This is done through their credit card processing relationship with local businesses. In turn, parents, educators and other community members are motivated to shop at local businesses that support schools. A portion of every transaction processed is donated to Bishop Union High School through the Foundation For Excellence.
School Spirit Pays matches each businesses’ competitive processing rates, so there are no added expense to the business. The more local businesses get involved, the greater their mission of generosity is magnified in our BUHS. The Foundation believes in a cycle of mutual value, businesses help fund BUHS through their credit card processing with School Spirit Pays. Parents, educators and other community members are motivated to buy from local businesses that support our high school. As the number of School Spirit Pays businesses grow, funds for schools increase. Currently eleven businesses are participating with more signing on each day.
When you live in our community, you have a vested interest in maintaining a diverse and thriving economy of small businesses. They create jobs, fund more city services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvements and promote community development. Property values increase and families are attracted to a community when local schools are recognized for the quality of their education. This can be achieved with adequate sustainable funding for our schools.
