A unique fundraising effort by two local groups Big Sky Commerce and Missoula Catholic Schools. Easy switch in credit card processing means more money for local schools

The down economy has not made it easy for non-profit organizations, schools
and other civic groups to raise money for their cause. This reality is
requiring organizations to get creative when it comes to fundraising. Enter:
Missoula Catholic Schools and Big Sky Commerce both of Missoula.

Big Sky Commerce has partnered with Missoula Catholic Schools (Loyola and
St. Joseph school) to creatively provide a means of fundraising for the Catholic

"We at Big Sky Commerce are thrilled to support the fundraising efforts of
such a well-established and successful school system as Missoula Catholic
Schools (MCS. This partnership provides MCS alumni, parents, staff, the
foundation board and members of the Missoula community to utilize a service
they may already be using to generate revenue for the school system," says
Big Sky Commerce owner Kevin Davis.

Here is how it works: An interested business, regardless of its location and
business type, signs up with Big Sky Commerce for merchant processing
services and asks for the ‘Missoula Catholic Schools’ program. Big Sky
Commerce offers each participating business with nationally-competitive card
processing fees, while supporting new or existing hardware to process all
major credit cards and debit cards. Big Sky Commerce then donates a portion
of the card processing fees to Missoula Catholic Schools on a monthly basis
and in perpetuity.

"This is a great opportunity for Big Sky Commerce to
support a key player in our community, while offering Missoula Catholic
Schools a convenient fundraising revenue stream." says Kevin Davis.
Businesses and organizations simply allow Big Sky Commerce to administer a
service they’re likely already using, while financially benefiting Missoula
Catholic Schools at the same time.

Why Big Sky Commerce? Big Sky Commerce was a natural selection for Missoula
Catholic Schools due to their local roots and commitment to serving the
Missoula community. "Kevin and his staff have been a pure pleasure to work
with and we look forward to this partnership," says Jeremy Beck, President of
Missoula Catholic Schools.
