How MySchool works

My School effectively facilitates school support on behalf of a range of business partners who have a specific interest in education. The fundraising programme is a partnership between business partners, consumer supporters and schools; all striving to create a better future for learners in South Africa. Approximately 600 000 parents and community minded individuals have MySchool supporter cards.

Supporters use their MySchool supporter cards whenever they transact with one of the MySchool business partners. A small percentage of their transaction is then allocated to their beneficiary school or charity. All these transactions are recorded and a statement is sent to individual supporters on a monthly basis.

The supporter card is not a debit or credit but serves as a measure through which valuable supporter data, such as transactions and funds raised for a particular school, are tracked.

In addition to channelling funds to schools and organisations, the system also promotes developmental initiatives in under resourced schools in conjunction with business partners. These initiatives are aimed at bringing much needed resources to these schools and starting partnerships with more affluent schools and business partners. Some initiatives include a Twining model where resourced school partner with under-resourced schools in the pursuit of aiding development; multi-partner projects such as the Toys R Us donation station and stationery collection drives for our Thuso Schools.

MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet

Originally the MySchool programme was exclusive to schools: only schools could sign up to benefit from their supporter’s swipes at our national partners. Recently the MyVillage MyPlanet alternatives were added to our list of organisations that we raise valuable funds for. MyVillage organizations are charities that care for people. MyPlanet organizations care for animals and the planet.

The three brands (MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet) are simply our way of classifying the organisations that we support.

The system is the same: one card that you can swipe whenever you shop at participating stores.

The benefits are the same: every swipe will support your chosen beneficiary at no cost to you.

The card is the same: the MySchool card is the umbrella brand that represents the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet programme. You can use the one card your entire life – even if you wish to change your beneficiary you don’t need to get a new card. This is to reduce setup costs for the schools and charities we support and to reduce plastic waste (e.g. when a parent’s child leaves the school and the parent decides to start supporting a charity they can change the beneficiary without the hassle of getting a new card.)

BUT your options have increased: now you can choose to support one of over 10 000 schools and over 360 charities and environmental concerns.
