Raise funds for your cause (school or other non-profit) while supporting local merchants!
The program has significant benefits over traditional fundraising and scrip efforts:
Local merchants on the program contribute a significant percentage of sales to your cause (10-15% is the norm). This is substantially greater than the contributions offered by traditional scrip programs (typically only 2-5%)
Little Effort Required
The program is designed to be as effortless as possible. There is no work or volunteerism required once your members are on the program and using the mobile app. We manage the technology, collections, payments and merchant interactions on your behalf
Engage More Businesses
Many local merchants would like to support your cause via fundraising events, which requires work and effort and has its limits. Our program is designed to help you engage with a greater number of local businesses without requiring more work on your part
The CFC platform allows local merchants to make ongoing offers that extend throughout the year. Unlike many fundraising events that are for a specific day or time, your members can make donations by shopping and dining at their convenience, any time of the year
HOW IT WORKS
Merchants who care about supporting your cause will make a donation for each sale.
Your cause can participate in three simple steps:
1. Sign-up your school or other non-profit organization
2. You tell your members about the program and the mobile app via emails, newsletters and other mechanisms
3. Your members support the program by shopping with local merchants and registering their purchases
At the end of each quarter we will send you a summary statement and check for donations made to your cause – Its that simple!
