The Henry Vilas Zoo has teamed with City-Scrip. City-Scrip is a community focused enterprise that assists schools and other not-for-profit organizations in fundraising activities. This is made possible through value added alliances between local businesses, community members, and schools/not-for-profit organizations. This unique win-win-win business model helps strengthen communities through patronage to local businesses, savings for customers and by providing additional dollars to educational and not-for-profit organizations.
Users of City-Scrip gift certificates and gift cards help themselves and their community. Go on-line and review a broad selection of discounted gift certificates with savings up to 50%. Each participating merchant, upon your purchase, makes a donation to the school or organization you choose. The percentage of the donation is defined by the merchant and is posted prominently on the site. Save money and make a community contribution. How good can it get?
