Our Story

The School Cash Suite was built in the early 90’s by two bookkeepers who were struggling to keep up with collecting, counting and managing student activity funds at their respective public schools.

With a heavy workload and constant interruption from coworkers, students and parents, Kim Vivian-Downs and Evelyn Eagle knew there had to be a better way. Putting their heads together they decided to embark on a journey that has changed school activity fund management forever.
