Crusader Cash is a term that means "substitute money."
When our families purchase Crusader Cash, they're purchasing gift certificates that are used just like cash. These national and local merchants want to support non-profit organizations and in return ask you to support them by shopping with Crusader Cash at their stores. You can use Crusader Cash to purchase everyday items such as food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every Crusader Cash purchase, we earn free money for our school.
How Crusader Cash generates revenue for you.
Because the Crusader Cash is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy buys the Crusader Cash at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to you for a full face value. The bulk of the discount - from two to fifteen percent or more - is retained by our school as revenue.
Crusader Cash is "shopping cart fundraising."
The reason for the effectiveness of Crusader Cash is simple: families generate revenue through purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with Crusader Cash. Our organization of 150 families easily will spend between one and two million dollars per year on food, clothing and other essentials. That means we would raise nearly $80,000 per year for our school just by using Crusader Cash- without spending an additional penny. Think what we could do at Our Lady of Grace if everyone we knew participated.
