FundScrip Fundraiser

Hi Matthew House Friends!

We have just started a fun and exciting gift card fundraising program through Fundscrip! It’s great for those who love to shop or those who just love to help out a great cause!

We are using Fundscrip to raise money for Matthew House Windsor by buying gift cards for everyday purchases from a wide array of retail categories such as groceries, gas, home improvement, department stores, restaurants, coffee shops, clothing stores and many more.  The gift cards themselves come from some of Canada’s largest retailers. They are sold at face value, but earn rebates ranging from 2%- 10% of the purchase price of the cards.

Do you already buy gift cards for friends and family? Do you ever give your customers gift cards as a thank-you for their patronage? Maybe you’re considering it? If so, would you consider purchasing your gift cards through Fundscrip to help this non-profit group? Gift cards are such a wonderful product, and buying your gift cards through Fundscrip is a win-win situation. At no additional cost, you get the gift cards you need; and Matthew House will be able to raise funds for our important cause.

The gift cards themselves come directly from the retailer and are the same cards you would purchase if you went directly to the stores to buy them. Buying them this way will save you time, energy, and let you help raise funds towards our goal. If you would like more information about Fundscrip, please visit their website at www.fundscrip.com.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Participating retailers include:

Latest Fundraising Update

On August 18th, Matthew House Windsor was invited once again to participate in a fundraiser at the Border City Brawler’s last bout of this season. If you’ve never been to a roller derby, let me tell you – it is quite exciting! The skaters were tough and rough during the bout, forcefully smashing and blocking each other. However, off the track they were so friendly and kind! One of them even suggested I try out (I don’t think I will though, I can’t even skate backwards)!

The skaters warming up.. it’s about to get intense!

A couple of people noticed our beautiful t-shirts, intended for our volunteers on our table and wanted to buy them! We weren’t expecting to sell t-shirts, but we were happy to do so! The t-shirts are really cute, who wouldn’t want them?

Look at all those tickets! One of our amazing volunteers, Brian right before we drew the winner.

To break down the funds we raised, we were able to raise $343 in total! $283 from the 50/50 draw, $20 from t-shirt sales and $40 donated by the winner of our 50/50 draw. This was a great event for us, not only to raise funds, but to raise awareness for Matthew House Windsor. Many people took an interest in Matthew House and asked questions about how we serve the community. After learning about us, they were happy to donate a few dollars for a good cause.

Big thank you again to Border City Brawlers! You ladies rock!
