RAISERIGHT FUNDRAISING FAQ
What is RaiseRight (formerly Scrip)?
RaiseRight is a way to fundraise for non-profit organizations. RaiseRight is a nontraditional fundraiser in the sense that you are not selling a product to others. You simply purchase gift cards (digital or physical), at face value, to redeem at businesses at which you already frequent. Those businesses, through an agreement with RaiseRight, rebate a certain percentage (typically 3%-15% depending on the business) of your purchase back to JHS Girls Lacrosse Booster Club. The Booster Club has decided that the money a player earns through Raise Right rebates can be used toward her Booster Club fees. You can raise money all year long through RaiseRight, and rebates are credited to player accounts at the end of each statement period, typically every 3 months. Any money raised in excess of Booster Club fees and/or fundraising buyouts will carry over to the next season with the exception of non-returning players (graduates or girls no longer playing in the program). For any non-returning players, money raised in excess of Booster Club fees and/or fundraising buyouts can be donated to the Booster Club at the end of the player’s last season with JHS Girls Lacrosse.
How does this make money?
The businesses in the RaiseRight program have agreed to sell their gift cards at a reduced fee to the program. You, the purchaser, get the entire face value of the gift card to redeem at the business, while the difference between the face value and the discounted sale price goes to the Booster Club. This fundraised money is electronically transferred to the Booster Club so individuals do not need to worry about getting this money to the Booster Club. Each business lists the amount of money you can earn as a percentage of the total sale. The percentage you earn is different between businesses and sometimes a business will have a promotion in which you can earn a bigger percentage.
