Families of students within your school—and communities at large—want to contribute to create a better learning environment. Whether it’s for new technology equipment, field trips, sports equipment, author visits, or events, they’re invested in supporting student success. But fundraising can be a labor-intensive process, requiring lots of volunteer hours, or an unwelcomed process, involving selling goods that people generally don’t want.

For more than 25 years, gift card fundraising from ShopWithScrip has been used by schools across the U.S. as an easier way to fundraise. Simply by changing the way they pay, families can earn by using gift cards to pay for everyday purchases like groceries, gas, dining out, and so much more.

Today, we’re more committed than ever to delivering the easiest, most effective way for schools and communities to raise money for the things that mean the most to them. That’s why we’re excited to announce the release of our one, simplified fundraising platform and our new company name: RaiseRight. It’s about raising funds simply in the way that is right for your school and its families.

How does gift card fundraising work?

Families buy gift cards from RaiseRight to pay for their everyday purchases. Brands like Amazon, Starbucks, and The Home Depot give back 2-20 percent with each purchase, and these earnings are distributed to your school fundraising account. With 750-plus brands to choose from and options for eGift cards and physical gift cards, families can easily earn on household purchases. Plus, gift cards make great gifts for teachers, too.

Why choose gift card fundraising?

  • Unlimited earning potential. Many families earn $1,000 or more every year for their school.
  • No selling. No extra time. Say goodbye to the hassles of traditional fundraisers. No need to spend hours selling things or planning events.
  • No registration fees. The program is free to set up, with no minimums required. Participants only pay for the gift cards they purchase.
