Axxess Helps Local Schools Get Access to Funds

Santa Barbara Axxess — the company behind the Axxess Card — is partnering with more than 70 locals schools to help them raise money for their PTAs, camps, equipment, instruments, sports, educational supplies and more.

Axxess has raised more than $1.4 million for schools and nonprofit groups. It is Santa Barbara’s largest local school fundraiser.

Currently, the new 2017 Axxess Card is only available through schools until Oct. 1.

“It is very important to us that we help maximize the fundraising efforts of our schools by giving them the first opportunity to sell the books, before they become available anywhere else," said Megan Hilton, vice president of marketing for Santa Barbara Axxess.

"As a parent myself, I know how badly the schools need every penny they can get. To be able to help in this effort, knowing that my own children will benefit from it, is absolutely incredible. It’s why I love what I do,” she said.

The 2017 Axxess Card — which includes more than 530 local businesses and savings offers — can be used immediately and is good until the end of 2017.

Cost for the card is $30. Schools get $10 from each sale.

Axxess fundraisers can be found in schools from Goleta to Carpinteria and new this year, in the Santa Ynez Valley. For a list of schools selling Axxess: go to http://www.sbaxxess.com/school-fundraisers.html

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
