September 2015: Maines Gives Back Over $45,000 to Local Non-Profits!

Raise Money While You Shop!

The Maines GiveBack Program is a free year-round fundraising program for any nonprofit organization, better yet, there’s no selling involved. With our Giveback rewards program, members of your organization raise money just by doing their regular shopping with Maines. Every 6 months, we send your organization a check – giving back 5% of your members cumulative spend.

Any time a member of your organization swipes their GiveBack card at checkout, those purchases will count towards your organization’s total spend. Every purchase you make, from meat to produce and everything in between, counts towards your rebate.

 

If you have 50 members shopping at Maines Food & Party Warehouse from your organization and they spend $100 a month, Maines would give back $1,500 to your organization twice a year! That’s $3,000 a year just for participants doing their normal grocery shopping at Maines Food & Party Warehouse.
