ShareRewards “donate by shopping” program gets a big “thumbs up” with school district supporters. Schools around the country are adopting new fundraising program at rapid clip.
Dallas, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/21/2014 --Can online purchases at stores like Starbucks, Amazon, Apple, Nordstrom, Best Buy and Walmart be turned into gold for local schools? Yes, according to ShareRewards and its growing roster of enrolled school district foundations.
Merchants want to appeal positively to customers and what better way than supporting their kid’s schools. The program enrolls supporters who just shop as usual with nothing more required. ShareRewards does the footwork by providing schools with a dedicated website for supporters tracking of shopping online at 350 recognizable stores. With no risk or investment, the program produces “found” money for school’s Foundations. ShareRewards is a simplistic yet significant way to sustain revenue and improve the potential for schools and their programs.
James E. Dunne III, President of ShareRewards said of the online fundraising program, “The affinity model has worked for us time and again with companies like Continental, British Air, Hyatt and Hilton. We believed it was time to customize programs for schools so that our children can benefit from something people do every day, shop. Thankfully internet retailers like Macy’s and Walmart have risen to the challenge and support the effort. Now we just need more schools to get on board. The potential for revenue for the holiday season is impressive.”
