It’s never too early to learn to give back to your community! Primary and secondary school students can fundraise for their school, church, team or non-profit (with a little supervision and guidance from Mom or Dad).
“My Mom and I shopped scripsense for all my Pali Adventure Camp needs and earned funds for the new SJSC Chapel at the same time. Amazon, Nike, CVS, Billabong, Target & Kohl’s had everything on my packing list and Amazon Prime items arrived in 2 days. I am so excited for 6th grade camp!”
– Grace J, Student at St. Junipero Serra Catholic School
As a parent, you want to teach your kids that giving back to your community is important. Parents also want to educate their kids to be savvy shoppers. Why not explain how your kids can give back and shop smarter at the same time?
Whether you are fundraising for your school, church, team, foundation or any other organization, we can help! Here are some simple ways to give back to the organizations you care about:
1. Set Specific Giving Goals and Write Them Down: Writing down your goals is proven to increase the odds of achieving them! How much do you want to earn for your organization each month? Do you want to beat the amount you gave in 2016? Be specific and place the paper somewhere you see everyday as a positive reminder!
CEO Melinda Masson founded her first company in her early 20’s – Merit Property Management, Inc. – with a single contract for management of a condominium project. Masson continued her entrepreneurial ways for 30 years and added 4 more real estate related service companies, eventually morphing her enterprises into the Merit Companies. In 2007, Masson bundled her companies and sold them to FirstService Corporation (NASDAQ;FSRV;TSX:FSV), a publicly traded company.
As a mother of 3 and business owner, Masson has always been engaged with philanthropic organizations. Whether it is serving on the boards of directors, participating in key committees, or conducting strategic planning sessions to enhance their business plan; philanthropy and its unique challenges are well known to Masson. Known for her strategic partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, and the integration of new business models, Masson leads the business planning and alignment with key business partners to enhance scripsense. Her role as CEO will help make scripsense a household name. She continues to unveil new opportunities worldwide to support and develop the greater good to bring scripsense to every community.
President Lori Jackson has been in public relations as a fundraising advocate for more than two decades.
After working for the National Football League in public relations, Lori became more involved in outreach and enhancing community relation commitments. Throughout her career, she helped develop National Brands in supporting non-profits and launched community relation programs for master planned communities in California.
Coupled with her first-hand experience of the crucial role of fundraising, her focus of raising money for nonprofits was made even more personal once Lori’s 4 children were enrolled in private schools. After serving on committees and co-chairing events, it became clear that the traditional ways of scrip fundraising had been too cumbersome and less effective. Combining her background in public relations and marketing with her understanding of the needs of nonprofits, Lori co-founded scripsense to revitalize the industry and create a new lifestyle of giving.
With a vision in 2013 to revitalize the standard mode of fundraising, fellow philanthropic advocates Melinda Masson and Lori Jackson joined forces to create scripsense, the premiere online, interactive fundraising program. Together the team has created a professional fundraising and management service company focusing on risk management, where innovation meets philanthropy.
The stylish online platform modernizes and simplifies the process of running and using a fundraising program. Scripsense allows for increased earnings and greater community involvement, while requiring less busy-work from the organization and the end user. Our mission is to provide a more effective, risk free and enjoyable way for dedicated individuals and organizations to enhance their cause and earn rebates.
