About We Make A Difference

We Make A Difference is an innovative fundraising platform for schools to raise funds 12 months a year at the same time as saving your staff and parents hundreds of dollars a year on their everyday living expenses.

The We Make A Difference platform also provides opportunities to partner with companies to provide huge savings on sporting goods, computers, stationary and many other areas to provide parents with great savings at the same time as raising funds for the school.

The platform enables your school to create a closer connection with the local community through our local area marketing platform.

How it benefits your school:

  • Parents save money on their everyday living expenses
  • Shop online and generate 2% of every purchase back to the school
  • Support local businesses and the local community

How it works

The We Make A Difference provides your staff and parents with access to over 80 discounted ecards providing savings at some of the largest retailers in Australia.

Your staff and parents have access to our discounted eCards saving them hundreds of dollars a year.

Savings on Groceries, Petrol, Beer and Wine alone can save a family in excess of a thousand dollars a year.

On average families are saving over $2,000 a year on their everyday living expenses.

Your staff and parents pay $10 per month to gain access to the eCards with $2.00 per month paid back to the school. Spending $200 per month on groceries, petrol or beer and wine will save the cost of their $10 monthly subscription.

Online shopping

The We Make A Difference platform provides your staff and parents with access to hundreds of online shops through our shopping portal. Your members are re-directed to the store website where they pay the same price as displayed on the stores site.

The purchase is tracked back to your school through a tracking code in the URL which generates 2% commission back to your school on each purchase through the We Make A Difference sponsorship.

We have seen a phenomenal growth in online shopping with people spending more time at home than ever before, people pulled out phones and laptops to do their shopping.

In Australia, online shopping growth for the 12 months to 31 December topped 57% YOY. More Australians shopped online than ever before in 2020. Around four in five households – that’s almost nine million – purchased online at some point during the year.

Through the We Make A Difference platform and sponsorship your school will receive 2% of every purchase through our online shopping platform.
