The 35th annual Kids First Coupon Book sale begins on Friday, September 9. For two weeks, students in the Hamilton County elementary schools will be selling the nearly 200-page booklets that cost only $10 and feature hundreds of dollars in savings from area stores, restaurants, attractions, and service providers. See all savings here.
During the past 34 years, the Kids First Coupon Book has generated over 12 million dollars in direct revenue to the schools. Unlike other school fundraisers, Kids First is produced by the non-profit Fund for Excellence. All proceeds stay in Hamilton County for the benefit of local schools. The schools keep $7 for every book sold, and the money is allocated according to their individual needs to pay for things like technology upgrades, art supplies, playground equipment, and library books. The remaining 30 percent of coupon book revenue covers program-related expenses.
