ShopRaise Fundraising

Our Lady of Guadalupe School now works with ShopRaise, an innovative and simple way to turn your everyday shopping at over 1,000 participating retailers into support for our school!

What is ShopRaise?

ShopRaise is an easy way to make giving to OLG part of your online purchases. From groceries and apparel to technology and travel – a percentage of almost everything you buy goes to support OLG. The best thing is the program is free, you do not pay any more for the items you buy, and you get access to all the best coupons and deals.

I have heard of AmazonSmile. Is this the same?

AmazonSmile was a program launched by Amazon in 2013 to help nonprofits raise money through customers making purchases from the site. It allowed to raise 0.5% of each purchase to the customer’s chosen charity or organization. Sadly, the program ended in February 20223. However, there are alternatives to AmazonSmile available that can help people support their favorite charities while they shop.

Is using ShopRaise worth it?

ShopRaise is one of the best alternatives to Amazon for shopping because it offers more stores and you can earn a higher contribution rate with each purchase. Because of the higher contribution rates per purchase, it allows you to make a bigger impact than you may have done with AmazonSmile. Plus, ShopRaise customers can earn even more when they purchase gift cards and then use them to make purchases through the app.  With over 1,000 stores, and hundreds of gift cards you are certain to find the same products you purchased on AmazonSmile, but with even higher donation rates.

How can I use ShopRaise to support OLG?

It could not be easier! The platform is available on both desktop and mobile devices, so you can earn donations when they shop. Once you download the ShopRaise app, you can select OLG School as the organization you want to support and start shopping.

Great! How can I get started?
