We were very happy to learn that we were successfully registered as a beneficiary of the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet Fundraising programme. Individuals are now able to sign up for a card, and choose their organisation as their beneficiary.
MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet is one of South Africa’s biggest fundraising programmes and allows people to make a difference, just by shopping. Every time you use your card at any of the partner stores they’ll give back a percentage of your purchase value, on your behalf, to the school or charity you choose at absolutely no cost to you!
Simply swipe when you shop and you can help over 8 000 schools, charities and animal welfare or environmental organisations. Get your free card today!
How Does MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet Work?
More than 1.2 million South Africans carry MySchool cards.
Supporters apply for a free MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card and select up to 3 schools and/or charities as their beneficiary/ies.
When they purchase items from participating retailers they swipe the card with the purchase.
A percentage of their transaction is then allocated to their beneficiary.
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.
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 and now also The Andries Olivier Durbanville Quadriplegic Centre. These villages actively seek to improve the lives of our fellow men, women and children.
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
