First Alternative COOP
First Alternative donates to schools in two ways – by allowing customers to “round-up” at check-out and donating additional amount to a school – and by donating a percentage of your purchases to a school. For rounding up, just tell the cashier you wish to do so and to donate to Franklin School. For the percentage donation, owners may fill out a form to tie their ownership number to Franklin (please note that the purchases will not be tracked to your ownership number for dividend reasons.) Non-owners may simply tell the cashier they wish to donate to Franklin!
Benefit is a pre-paid mobile payments platform that empowers individuals to give to the things that matter most through their everyday transactions.
Benefit works by purchasing gift cards and instantly redeeming directly from your phone as a method of payment. This can be done at home while shopping online or in-store in the checkout lane. Every purchase results in a percentage of the transaction being contributed to the cause of your choice. It might be a child's education, a local non-profit, or just a general life expense. You pay and Benefit gives. Where it goes is up to you.
How does Benefit work?
For our mobile users: Benefit works by buying and redeeming mobile gift cards instantly from your phone as a method of payment. This can be done at home while shopping online or in-store at checkout. Every purchase results in a percentage of the transaction being contributed to the cause of your choice. It might be a child's education, a local non-profit, or just a general life expense. You pay and Benefit gives. Where it goes is up to you.
Keep in mind that while these are called gift cards, you can think of them more like store credit. You purchase what you want, when you want, and are delivered a barcode or card number for instant redemption. The app will then help you track your card balances.
