SCRIP FOR FUNDRAISING

How Gift Card Fundraising Works

Earn money 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. You can be fundraising simultaneously while you do basic things like grocery shopping, filling up your tank at the gas pump, or even buying school clothes for your kids. Don’t pass up the opportunity to fundraise for Word of Life as you’re accomplishing your weekly tasks!
