How To Run An eGift Card Fundraiser

October 20 2017

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

Running an eGift card fundraiser is one of the easiest ways for a team to raise money. Gift cards are a really popular option because they don’t require immediate use, and your supporters get the full value of their gift card while your team or cause earns cash back. 

Here’s how it works: 

Organizing an egift card fundraiser takes under 5 minutes. Simply create a campaign on FlipGive, and add your team members or committee so that they can sell egift cards through your page. Anytime a supporter purchases and egift card through your page, the card is sent to them via email. Once the campaign page is set up, you don’t have to do anything else in order to earn cash back. The fundraiser can also run for any duration of time you like. 


How to raise money with eGift cards:


Use egift cards for christmas presents:

Host an eGift card fundraiser during the holiday season. Your team or community are buying gifts anyway, and eGift cards are a hugely popular item, especially for office and teacher’s gifts. Shop from popular brands like Indigo, Sephora, and Nike. 


Use eGift cards for team parties and community events:

Depending on what you’re raising money for, there are different brands on FlipGive that will work best for your team or cause. Restaurant egift cards are always a great choice. With an average give back of 10%, many teams will purchase them ahead of tournaments so they can be used for team dinners. If you are part of an organization that frequently hosts events where you serve food, like after school programs, your organization can earn cash back on things like pizza delivery. 


Use eGift cards to raise money for groceries:

Your supporters can earn cash back using egift cards to the grocery stores that the usually frequent. This means that your supporters can help your team or cause buying items that they need in their day to day. 


How to keep your supporters motivated: 

Make sure you share your eGift card fundraiser, and remind your supporters that they can purchase as many gift cards as they want in order to raise money for your team!
