WCRFC is excited to offer our members an opportunity to reduce their soccer players registration fees and support the club, all while doing their regular day to day shopping.
We have opened up an account with the fundraising company FlipGive. (www.FlipGive.com).
FlipGive has a website and app which enables members to earn cash for the things they are already buying. Members earn cash when they shop online with certain brands or purchase digital or physical gift cards that can be used at local stores. Some of the local retailers that are associated with FlipGive include Sobeys, Superstore, No Frills, ESSO, Tim Hortons, Starbucks, Montana’s, Swiss Chalet, Harveys, Old Navy, Home Depot, Home Hardware, Indigo and many more.
In order for our members to get a direct benefit from this program WCRFC will take half of any money raised and put it directly towards the members registration fees. The other half of the money raised will go to the club to help pay for costs associated with running the club. As an example: If a member earns $100 in cash back from FlipGive, $50 goes towards registration and $50 stays with the club.
Members sign up with their own account through the WCRFC “team” account and FlipGive tracks each member’s purchases. There are many success stories on the FlipGive website about teams that have raised thousands of dollars using FlipGive and I heard of a local hockey parent on PEI who was able to raise over $250 in one season. You can also add others people to your account, such as grandparents, aunts and uncles or friends to raise cash for your member’s registration.
The sign-up process is very quick and easy and the FlipGive app is very user friendly. Once you enter your credit card information into the app you can purchase digital gift cards which are kept in the wallet of the app for use when you shop at your local store, get gas, or eat at a restaurant. It actually seems too easy, but it does work and every purchase adds to your total.
If you are interested in reducing your registration costs for this coming season and beyond please email WCRFCED@gmail.com and we will send you the sign-up information.
Please visit www.flipgive.com and check out all the vendors that are available and see how easy it is to earn cash for registration just by doing the things you do every day. You can also check out some of the success stories teams across North America have had.
