The FLY (Faith Lutheran Youth) are selling gift cards through RaiseRight as an ongoing fundraiser. You can purchase gift cards to the places you already shop. You can also use their app to purchase digital gift cards while you are at a store! There are hundreds to choose from. This program costs you NOTHING extra! You are not asked to spend any more money than you normally would, but rather use our gift cards in place of your checkbook or debit card. When you do this, you will be helping our youth program. You may purchase the cards on Sundays after the worship services or call the church office anytime.
How does this all work?
Gift Cards are purchased by the Youth Board. Each retailer gives a percentage to our Youth Group when the card is purchased. For example, Chili’s gives 11% for every $25 dollar card purchased. The card would cost the Youth Board $22.25. When you purchase the card at $25 dollars, the youth will earn $2.75.
The top sellers are Walmart, Lowe’s and Chili’s, but you can also use the service for cards through Southwest Airlines, Marriott Hotels, Carnival Cruise Lines, and Hotels.com. These type of travel purchases add up quickly to benefit our youth! There are a wide selection of gift cards available from dining, clothing, and department stores to entertainment and travel just to name a few. You can view a full list of participating retailers at the FLY table on Sundays or visit https://www.raiseright.com/brands. By setting up account, you can purchase cards, see daily bonus specials, and even see a summary of what your purchases have totaled in donation back to FLY!
