e~Funds for Schools allows you to deposit funds in your family lunch account, pay your Family Registration fees, or pay for student activity tickets, by transferring money from your checking account or charging to your credit card. There is no fee for Cash transfer transactions, and a credit card transaction fee of only $1.95. You’ll need to register first, and you’ll want your family lunch account ID when you register.
When submitting a payment, click on the “New Payments” tab so that you can make separate deposits for Family Registration, Activity Tickets, and Lunch Balances (when using your credit card, you’ll not be charged the $1.95 for each of the separate deposits – it’s considered one transaction ). When depositing to your Lunch Balance you do not need to divide the deposit between the various students listed on your account, even though all are shown. Just enter the entire lunch deposit amount under the first student number shown. After each transaction, print a receipt with your confirmation number. You may also print a report showing prior transactions. The transfer from your bank account will take place overnight, and we deposit it your family lunch account the following day, so there may be a two-day timing issue to remember.
