We provide the easiest, most effective technology available for organizations to raise money by empowering members to give through their everyday spending.

Founded in 2013 by entrepreneurs Lori Jackson and Melinda Masson, scripsense revolutionizes the standard modes of fundraising with a powerful and professional fundraising platform for desktops and mobile devices.

Using scripsense’s interactive shopping program, organizations and their members can keep track of all cash rebates earned for the organization when their members purchase eGift cards, products or services from merchants nationwide.

Nonprofits, schools, charities, religious institutions and associations of all types benefit from easier, more successful fundraising, while requiring significantly less busy-work for coordinators and members.
