What our families are saying about RaiseRight

  • Raise Right has been such an easy and great way for us to raise money towards our hockey bill!  We use it whenever we can to help us save.  Little by little it all adds up and we currently have close to $700 in our account for next season.  Our favorite are the electronic gift cards!  We prefer to do them right in the store so I know close to the amount we will need.  Please reach out if you have questions, I'd love to share with you more about how we use Raise Right to help our family make hockey more affordable!
  • I am so happy to be able to use Raise Right to help with the cost of hockey. The app is so easy to use!  I love how I can order an e-gift card while eating at a restaurant to pay the bill.
  • I love to order Raise Right gift cards - it’s nice to have restaurant ones on hand for gifts. I ordered some Visa ones at Christmas & it didn’t charge the extra $5 activation fee. The best part is I earn a percentage on each purchase which goes toward our grandsons' hockey fees.

A few More things to consider

      •  Shipping charges will be added for each physical card order placed and shipped to Coordinator; shipping cost will be based on the % of the total amount ordered among all orders and will be split according to that percentage; the shipping charge will be taken from the rebate
      • Orders can be paid for online using your bank account or credit card
      • Physical Scrip card orders are placed on Mondays when shipping is less than the rebate total's being ordered

Credits continue to be applied to your player’s accounts all year long!!

Some helpful information regarding when credits for fundraising will be applied:

      • GVAHA Fundraising Coordinator will submit credits to the GVAHA treasurer by the 10th of every month for the month prior during the season
      • GVAHA Treasurer will apply credits to the house player balances and to the GVAHA Travel Team Managers by the 17th of each month for the month prior during the season
      • All credits will be reflected on your next month’s bill during the season
      • All credits accrued during the off-season will be applied at one time, generally in September
      • Credits between December to November will apply to the same season.  For example, December 2021 - November 2022 will apply to the 2022-2023 season.  Anything after December 1st, 2022 will apply to the following season
