Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the catch?
There is no catch! The full list of retail partners want to develop customer loyalty, support worthwhile causes and sell gift cards. Fundscrip have created a program that does all three. You shop and pay the regular price, and a percentage of the difference is donated to a cause you want to support.
Why would I want to participate?
This is a very easy way to support Life After Stroke. By simply changing your method of payment for your everyday spending (groceries, gas, and household items at the stores at which you are already shopping), you receive the chance to support the Life After Stroke community in a fun and budget-friendly way.
What format of gift card can be purchased?
Through FundScrip you can purchase a plastic, electronic or reloadable gift card for any of the partner retailers.
Do the gift cards expire?
Thanks to laws forbidding the expiry of gift cards in almost every province, almost none of the retail partner gift cards expire. However, you should always check on the back of the card to be sure.
Are there any up-front charges to anyone who uses FundScrip?
No, there are no up-front charges to use the program—it’s totally free to sign up!
