All parents are encouraged to please sign up for your FREE MySchool card – here is why…
The MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet fundraising programme is one of South Africa’s biggest community programmes. We raise funds for schools, charities and environmental organisations through a card system that allows supporters to raise funds for their beneficiary (school or charity) every time they shop at our partner stores. Partners make a contribution, on behalf of the supporter/cardholder, towards the beneficiary they have selected.
The system allows cardholders to make a difference to a worthy cause without it costing them a cent! The MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet programme raises more than R6 million per month for the schools, charities, animal welfare and environmental organisations it supports.
More than 1.2 million South Africans carry MySchool cards.
The partner stores pay the contribution on behalf of the cardholder. All these transactions are recorded and a statement is sent to individual supporters on a monthly basis. The supporter card is not a credit or debit card but simply tracks transactions and funds raised.
You have the option to choose to support one of over 9000 schools and over 360 charities and environmental concerns.
MySchool beneficiaries: there are over 9 000 schools registered with MySchool. You can choose to support your local school. If you do not have a particular school you’d like to support, you might want to consider the Thuso Fund, which supports under-resourced schools across South Africa.
MyVillage beneficiaries: charities that provide upliftment to communities and individuals in various ways other than the education school environment, such as SOS Children’s Villages, CHOC, Red Cross, Operation Smile. These villages actively seek to improve the lives of our fellow men, women and children. To view a list of our villages, click here.
MyPlanet beneficiaries: organisations that focus on the improvement and protection of the environment and animals, such as The Society of Animals in Distress, Endangered Wildlife Trust, SPCA, EWT Rhino Fund and Birdlife SA. To view a list of our planets, click here.
If you do not have a particular charity you’d like to support, you might want to consider the Thuso Fund, which supports under-resourced schools, charities and animal protection organisations.
