MONTREAL, March 19, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - FundScrip (powered by Fundstream
Inc.) has announced that they have surpassed $8 million dollars in
funds raised. These funds have been raised by charitable and non-profit
organizations, such as schools, sports teams and clubs, religious,
cultural and community groups who participate in the FundScrip gift
card fundraising program.
"Achieving group earnings of over eight million dollars is a significant
milestone that confirms, and quantifies, the value that FundScrip
brings to Canadian charities and non-profit groups, and other
stakeholders," said Christopher Hill, President & CEO of Fundstream
Inc. "Furthermore, the fact that group earnings are snowballing in this
way proves that our program is working for our fundraising groups and
their Supporters, and that the word is spreading virally."
Notably, over $2 Million of that total was raised in 2012 alone; and
FundScrip expects to exceed $10 million dollars in funds raised by the
end of 2013.
