How does this work for local businesses?

It doesn’t matter if you offer physical products, downloads, gift cards or services all options are available via the Fundamentas webstore.

To list your products or services on Fundamentas all we ask is that you set a minimum amount per product that will be donated to a school from each purchase. A 5% admin fee will also be applied and then we take care of the rest*.  Your products or services will be marketed to schools in your local area. This will include social media posts, email and physical newsletters circulated amongst parents and other school supporters within the community.

*Minimum donation of 5% and 5% admin fee calculated from product price before the shipping fee is applied
