Greetings Dodge County Youth Hockey Members!
We hope that the off season is treating you and your families well. The regular season may be over, but it is never too early to start planning for next year!
We are excited to share with you that DCYH has now joined RaiseRight to offer a new fundraising opportunity for our families to subsidize the costs of participating in hockey.
What is RaiseRight?
RaiseRight is a gift card fundraising program (also known as scrip fundraising for those of you who are familiar with this approach). Participants can place an order for gift cards (with both physical and electronic options) to use on everyday purchases (or for gifts) and will accumulate cash back rewards on their account. These accumulated funds may then be applied towards your hockey registration costs each season. Members who have used this program for other sports or associations have had positive experiences with it and praise how easy it is to use.
How do I join RaiseRight?
In order for your funds to be applied towards your DCYH account, you need to enroll in RaiseRight under the Dodge County Youth Hockey Association account. Below are the steps you can use to enroll:
Option 1: Navigate to https://www.raiseright.com/enroll?enrollCode=4ULXDLGQ8J38 and click "Join a Program". Follow the prompts to create an individual account to get started.
Option 2: Navigate to https://www.raiseright.com. Click the "Sign Up" button in the upper right hand corner. In the left hand pane under "Join an existing program", enter the following enrollment code: 4ULXDLGQ8J38 and click "Join a Program". Follow the prompts to create an individual account to get started.
Do I have to join RaiseRight?
No. RaiseRight is an optional fundraising opportunity for individual families to participate in to accumulate cash rewards to subsidize the annual registration costs for hockey. An individual family is not required to participate. However, we encourage all families to create an account and check out the gift card options. Many can be used for everyday purchases, travel, or gifts. Reward amounts vary by card and there are daily bonuses or deals on cards. Rewards can be accumulated throughout the entire year to be applied to the next hockey season. (FYI, with this being the first year, rewards will be accumulated only over the Spring/Summer of 2023 to be applied to the 2023-2024 season and subsequent years will have the entire year [e.g. Fall of 2023 through Summer of 2024] to be applied to the following year).
