Raise Right Program
It’s easy – and it works! By using gift cards to pay for everyday (and not-so-everyday) expenses, each CG Band family can hundreds of dollars each year. No selling. No extra time. No extra money.
What is gift card fundraising?
Also known as scrip fundraising, you raise funds by using gift cards instead of cash or credit to pay for everyday purchases like groceries, gas, dining out, that morning coffee addiction, appliance or computer purchases, even your family’s summer vacation.
How you earn:
Select from 750+ popular brands, with options for eGift cards (available immediately), physical gift cards, and reloadable gift cards. No extra money spent. No wasted value. (You pay $50 for a $50 gift card. Use to pay for your purchases or give as a gift.)
Earn funds For every gift card purchased, there is a percentage rebate (up to 20%) that comes from the gift card brand you are purchasing – their way of supporting organizations like Center Grove Trojan Band Boosters.
- 70% of the rebate goes to the band and 30% of the rebate goes towards the student’s escrow account. (Non-Marching Band Trip Year)
- 70% of the rebate goes towards the student’s escrow account & 30% goes to the band. (Marching Band Trip Year)
This is a great way to earn “free” funds for your student on purchases you already make.
The money earned from this rebate program is held in trust by the CGTBB Treasurer. In the Finances section of Charms, the rebates earned for each student are posted approximately 1x/month. The rebates earned can be used to offset band and trip fees as well as other items available for purchase from the band program.
Note: The rebates are not available to make purchases outside the band program (i.e. ISSMA tee shirts, the food at events, etc.)
