The GRI Community Card program is extremely easy to implement and there is absolutely no cost to the charities, businesses
or cardholders for participation.
To initiate our program, we request the non-profit's assistance in identifying
potential sponsors. We can enroll existing supporters or the program can be offered to any local business desired. Once a
minimum of ten sponsors have agreed to support your cause, we will provide you with GRI Community Cards that reflect your
specific organization by name. Cards are then distributed to all of your members with instructions on how to activate
them on-line. Once activated, the cardholders are provided with a list of participating businesses that have agreed
to donate a percentage of card related sales. Each time the cardholder presents their card, when purchasing from a member
business, the merchant scans the card electronically and contributions are automatically calculated. One hundred percent (100%)
of the contributions are transferred to our non-profits electronically each quarter closed.
In addition to raising
funds for your charity, this program provides a vehicle to support the businesses that are supporting you. GRI's Community
Card helps your sponsors to attract new customers, increase their buying frequency and encourage customer loyalty. Many
merchants offer incentives directly to cardholders too so it is a true win-win-win program.
