Foreign currency fundraiser - Donate your Foreign Currency!
Traveling over the summer internationally? Know friends and family that are? Do you have foreign currency that is just sitting in a drawer? BESF, PTA, and Friends of MIP will be holding a joint fundraiser where you can donate your foreign currency to the school. We have partnered with Leftovercash, Inc for a Fall fundraiser. All donated foreign currency will be converted into US dollars and 60% of the proceeds will be split by the 3 organizations. Tell your friends and family to keep their leftover cash and donate it to the school in September. Have a great summer!
