Supporters simply pay for their purchases with gift cards bought from FundScrip.
Since 2004, Canadians have put their faith in FundScrip to raise money for causes they care about.
No need to ask friends, family, and colleagues to buy over-priced stuff they wouldn't otherwise.
Use reloadable gift cards to support your group!
FundScrip is an established, Canada-wide fundraising program in which your supporters pay for their shopping (groceries, gas, home & garden, entertainment, restaurants, and much more) with gift cards. Each purchase automatically includes a donation to your cause. Really, you're just asking supporters to change their method of payment!
Great donations from the retailers you know and love
I don't have to really manage it – it runs itself. People order, they pay for the cards and then the cards come to the daycare. They're at the daycare every day to pick up their kids anyway, so they take their cards home and away they go. Plus, parents aren't asked to give money nor are they being asked to buy things that they're not necessarily going to use. So it's no extra cost to them… what they pay is what they get.
You pay $100, you get $100 back [in value on the card at retail]; whereas with the other fundraisers, that isn't necessarily the case. You don't have to dish out any money; what you give is what you get back; it's easy to order; it comes all prepared in individual envelopes. FundScrip does all the work.
You have a great team there and it is a pleasure (and a rarity these days!) to deal with competent, well-informed, courteous, businesslike, and just plain pleasant, people. I am well-served and am glad to let it be known. Keep up the good work.
Well as a fundraising director, this is the easiest of all my 5 fundraisers to do. I highly recommend FundScrip and have done so to some of the schools actually.
This is Megan and I am the coordinator for the Tofield United Church. I would like to say how impressed we are with the FundScrip fundraising so far! We have never had a problem and everything is fast and on time. It's so easy.
