Support A Healthy And Fit Fundraising Loyalty Rewards Program

Working in certain professions requires increased training. Trends and changes may emerge that alter how people approach their job. Persons involved in health and fitness know they must stay on top of trends. Enrolling in an adult's continued educational program helps them. Of course, the continued education nonprofit benefits from increased enrollment. Enrollment fees, however, might not be enough to keep doors open. The traditional means of raising funds might run short, too. Thankfully, a unique option exists: explore opportunities for a fundraising loyalty rewards program.

Build a Healthy Nonprofit on Credit 

A nonprofit fundraising rewards program works no differently than one designed for an airline. An organization signs an agreement with a credit card company. Every time someone uses the card, they acquire rewards points redeemable for merchandise or cash. A nonprofit fundraising loyalty program alters this deal somewhat. The credit card account holder can direct some or all of their rewards to the associated nonprofit. As a stream of financial support, donations from a loyalty card could prove helpful to a nonprofit.

The Students Always Buy Something 

Unlike many other professions, the physical fitness world requires making purchases constantly. Purchases of apparel alone might have to occur at a greater frequency. A trainer or therapist can't appear in front of a client with the same worn t-shirt week after week. Equipment doesn't last forever, so upgrades become necessary. Paying with cash isn't always possible and never an option with online buys, so out comes the credit card. Using the card means loyalty points add up.

School Spirit, Enthusiasm, and Rewards Support

The relationship between the student and the school factors into how many rewards donations the cardholder makes. The school should build a positive relationship with students, so they become more willing to use the card. And don't automatically assume the students know the school relies on fundraising. In communications with attendees, stress the value of fundraising and credit card rewards donations. Hopefully, the school receives a positive response.

Go Beyond the Students

A financial institution certainly wants as many qualified cardholders as possible. Whoever runs fundraising should work to promote the card and its cause to as many people as possible. Perhaps promoting the card at a traditional fundraising event would work. Any legal and allowable promotional strategy shouldn't be ignored.

Of course, working with a reliable card-issuer counts for a lot. Make sure the entity is reputable and pays out timely.
