DSAO King Soopers Fundraising
Dear DSAO Families,
With travel in our near future, we are excited to announce that the money we earn from our King Soopers Reloadable Gift Card fundraiser will now go into specific student travel accounts (based on card ownership & use) and will be used towards their Orchestra travel expenses.
Each time you reload your King Soopers Reloadable Gift Card (must be purchased through DSAO for $2.50 – which is the amount already loaded on the card), 5% of each reloading (up to $500) is awarded to DSAO, and we will track it for you and your student. That is 5 cents on every dollar you spend without costing you anything! Even a small amount can help when it comes time to pay for trips. King Soopers sends DSAO a check each time the reloads reach $5,000 or more, and that is when your students travel account will be credited with the amount earned. There is no cash value attached to the account, it is for DSAO fundraising only. Funds may follow the student from year to year providing they stay in the Orchestra. Once the student graduates, or leaves the Orchestra, the funds will be transferred to the DSAO travel scholarship fund, or may be transferred to a sibling within the Orchestra. Funds are not issued to the departing student or family.
Cards may be used at any Kings Soopers and City Market stores and can be used for many types of purchases including groceries, prescriptions, and gasoline. They cannot be used to purchase lottery tickets, stamps, money transactions, gift cards and other types of tickets.
Once you’ve purchased your card from DSAO, You simply give the card to your cashier before your purchases are scanned so the reloading is paid as a separate transaction (or you can do this at the Customer Service before making your purchases). You pay for the reload amount by cash, check or credit card. You can then use the Gift Card to pay for your purchases at any checkout line or fuel center. You can reload again and again. The more you use it, the more money is earned for your student. The money on the card never expires: However, if your balance goes to zero and you don’t reload it within 90 days, the card becomes inactive. You would then need to get a new card from DSAO. If you reload it after it is inactive, your student will not get credit for the reloads.
When DSAO plans a trip, and money is due, we will send you the balance in your students trip account to apply toward the amount due for that trip.
