FundScrip Gift Card Program
FundScrip is a fundraising program that allows you to pay for your everyday purchases with gift cards bought from FundScrip. A percentage of the cards that you purchase is then donated to Ninth Life Cat Rescue of Ontario. You can also purchase them for gifts for holidays, birthdays and anniversaries.
You don’t have to change where you shop or what you buy. Your everyday purchases add up to make a difference very quickly. It’s simple: you purchase gift cards at face value from FundScrip Participating Retailers, and a percentage of every gift card purchased is donated back to Ninth Life. This means that just by paying for your groceries and gas with gift cards, you can easily generate $25 every month for Ninth Life – that’s $300 a year! The money raised will help with essential rescue costs such as vet bills.
We have chosen to do ‘supporter ordering’, which means that as a supporter you can place and pay for your own orders online. You can choose from plastic, reloadable and electronic gift cards. Payment can be made with Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or Online Bill Payment and will have no cost per transaction. You can also pay with Visa or Mastercard, in which case 1.99% of order total/transaction is deducted from the earnings. For example, if you order from a company who donates 5% and pay with a credit card, the rescue would receive 3.01%.
There is a small delivery charge for plastic cards. Orders with four (4) or fewer cards whose collective value is less than $500 can be shipped via Canada Post Lettermail™ for $0.85 (plus taxes) per order. All other orders have the option of Canada Post Xpresspost™, which typically costs between $4.50 to $11.00 or Canada Post Xpresspost™ with Signature which costs between $6.00 to $12.50. Prices may be higher for remote locations. Applicable taxes included in all prices. Electronic gift cards do not incur any shipping charges.
For example, just imagine if you load your Starbucks card or app using gift cards instead of straight from your bank account, you are giving back up to 5% to Ninth Life with every pumpkin spice latte or peppermint hot chocolate!
