What is RaiseRight?
RaiseRight (formerly Scrip) is an online provider of gift card fundraising programs for nonprofit organizations such as our very own Amador Friends of Music (AFM).
Buy gift cards for friends and family, and/or use them to make your own purchases. Physical or eGift cards available for HUNDREDS of retailers, eg Safeway, Target, Amazon, Home Depot, Starbucks, and Chipotle.
How does it help AFM?
When you buy gift cards through RaiseRight, AFM earns a “rebate” from the merchant. For example, if you buy a $100 Old Navy gift card, AFM earns $14 (based on the 14% rebate from this merchant). If you buy a $500 Safeway gift card, AFM earns $20 (based on the 4% rebate from this merchant). Accumulated rebates can help fund instruments, uniforms, and equipment.
Are there fees?
All gift cards are purchased at face value. In other words, a $20 gift card costs $20. If you would like the convenience of paying for your gift cards by direct debit from your bank account, there's a $0.15 per transaction fee. RaiseRight also accepts credit card payments, which incur a 2.6% convenience fee. If you pay with cash or a check made payable to AFM, there is NO FEE! Most participants prefer direct debit. It’s secure and easy.
