e-Funds is a secure platform that facilitates the processing of electronic payments. It provides the convenience of paying for your student's material and activity fees, which were previously limited to cash or check payments. The decision to use this platform is currently left up to each individual building. It is crucial to adhere to your student's school guidelines when making payments for activities and fees.
