Reader Rewards: Fundraising
Fundraising dollars are waning as communities feel the pinch of this demanding economy coupled with negative budget cuts.
“Do more with less” seems to be the theme in the nonprofit world. Meanwhile, educational programs are being discontinued, social services are being terminated, and jobs are being lost. Significant amounts of fundraising dollars are needed to offset, salvage and secure programs and in some cases livelihoods. Every penny raised matters more now than ever before.
Reader Rewards is a free member cash rewards program that allows your supporters to seamlessly earn cash back (aka BuxBack) from participating merchants. Your supporters enroll for free registering their credit/debit cards and when they shop with participating merchants using their registered card, a negotiated rebate (5%-50%) gets automatically credited to their card the next month. Buxback members receive cash rebates monthly with the ability to automatically donate a percentage or all of their rebates to your nonprofit organization. With BuxBack there is now a way to seamlessly raise funds all year long without introducing more hard costs to your donor base. This is truly a win-win-win scenario for local merchants, your supporters and your organization!
