Royal West Academy Foundation announces its new fundraiser called FundScrip

Every month you spend hundreds of dollars on food, gas, clothing, pharmacy, restaurants, electronics, home renovations, department stores, and so on. Why not pay for some or all of your purchases using GIFT CARDS bought at face value from FundScrip participating retailers? Best of all, a percentage of every gift card purchased is contributed to our Auditorium’s fundraising efforts.

So instead of paying with cash or a debit card, you use a gift card that you purchased through RWAF’s FundScrip. It costs you nothing extra but you earn money for the school.

 How does it work?

FundScrip has hundreds of retailers listed on their site. You can purchase gift cards from any one or more of the retailers and a percentage of your purchase will be given to RWAF. You receive the full value of the cards; in other words, if you order a $100 gift card from Metro for your groceries, you get a $100 gift card.

If you buy a gift card through FundScrip for a grocery store, Royal West Academy earns 3% of the card’s value. If you spend $250 a week on groceries, and use only FundScrip cards to pay for groceries, you will earn Royal West Academy $7.50 each week. That’s like making a donation of $390 in one year without you actually spending any extra money!

 Some more examples:

– 23 supporters joined FundScrip in our first week. If each of them buys $100 of gift cards for Chapters (at 8%), Royal West Academy would earn $184.

– If 200 families bought $200 of their weekly groceries using FundScrip gift cards, the families would earn Royal West Academy $62,400 per year without changing their shopping habits!

– If 500 families bought $200 of their weekly groceries using FundScrip gift cards, the families would earn Royal West Academy $156,000 per year!

 The Royal West Academy Foundation FundScrip goal is to pay for a new air conditioning system for the auditorium.
