How Does FundScrip Work?

Buy gift cards, raise money. Watch the video to learn more.

The Basic Concept

Encourage supporters of your campaign to pay for their everyday expenses & gifts with gift cards bought from FundScrip. Each purchase generates earnings for the campaign. The supporter isn't out of pocket, and they shop where they would normally shop.

1

Buy $100, Get $100

Buy cards at face value, get face value at the retailers - you lose nothing

2

Shop As Usual

With cards from over 190 leading retailers, there's no need to change your shopping habits

3

Pay With Gift Cards

Pay with gift cards instead of credit/debit/cash for your everyday items & gifts

4

Generate Earnings

Each purchase generates earnings for your group that can quickly add up over time
