Now available: Support AEBC by purchasing gift cards through FundScrip!

Help us raise money and join our gift card fundraiser!

FundScrip is an innovative program that lets you earn cash rebates for the Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians based on things you buy everyday like groceries, gas and other household items.

Every month you spend hundreds of dollars for things like food, gas, clothing, pharmacy, restaurants, electronics, home renovations, department stores, and so on. All you have to do is pay for some or all of your purchases using gift cards bought at face value from FundScrip participating retailers and a percentage of every gift card purchased is contributed to AEBC's fundraising efforts. So instead of paying with cash or a debit card, you use a gift card that you purchased through our group.
