Make Your Wish List Come True

Shopping with gift cards is a great way to earn, whether your organization has long-term or short-term goals. It’s always free to get started, so it’s easy to start gaining on your fundraising goals right away.

  1. Decide how much your organization needs to earn, then set a deadline.

  2. Determine how many families need to participate in order to meet your goal. As a guideline, it’s common for a single family to raise about $1,000 per year and typically 30% of an organization’s families participate. Our online earnings calculator is a helpful tool that brings to life how every family that shops with gift cards can make an impact.   

  3. Share the goal with families to motivate them. Monitor your organization’s progress and send updates to make your success more trackable.
