SCRIP FOR FUNDRAISING

How Gift Card Fundraising Works

 

Gift card fundraising, also know as scrip fundraising, has been the #1 fundraiser for nonprofit organizations across the U.S. for more than 25 years. Why? Because it’s easy and more convenient than selling goods or recruiting volunteers. Earn simply by buying gift cards to use for everyday purchases, instead of cash or credit cards. For every gift card that is sold, the brand gives a percentage of that purchase back to your cause.  People can even purchase gift cards and donate them to your organization as staff gifts or incentives. This way, they are actually supporting your organization in multiple ways. We aren’t kidding when we say the brand partners are here to support your community! If you do basic things like grocery shopping, filling up your tank at the gas pump, or even buying school clothes for your kids, you can be fundraising simultaneously. Who doesn’t want to spend more time with their kids, friends, or significant others? Don’t pass up the opportunity to fundraise for your nonprofit organization as you’re accomplishing your weekly tasks. Make money for your nonprofit while knocking out any of the following: grocery trips, school clothes shopping, sports equipment purchases, electronics purchases, family dinners, birthday gifts, travel accommodations and more!
