Program partners with Vertical Raise

August 22, 2023

The Ohio AAA Blue Jackets are proud to announce a partnership with Vertical Raise, a fundraising platform that offers digital discount cards that offer more than 350,000 deals around the country. 

Through this partnership, each team in the organization will host a 21-day virtual fundraiser selling $25 digital discount cards that include deals at restaurants, hotels, shops, entertainment and more! The digital cards are GPS activated so the discounts available are always relative to the card holder's current location. 

At the conclusion of the fundraiser, 70% of all sales will be re-directed back to the program and each family that participates will have 100% of the proceeds that they were responsible for applied to their balance due in travel bills and fees.

The program's 21-day fundraiser is set to launch this Sunday, August 27, 2023. All AAA Blue Jackets families receive more specific information about this partnership and the launch of the fundraiser in advance of this weekend's practices at Chiller North.

The premier online donation platform in the country, Vertical Raise utilizes email, text messaging and social media campaigns to exponentially increase the reach of the fundraiser. The foundation of the company’s success is built upon its best-in-class email deliverability, detailed tracking and the complete personalization of every page. Combining this system with experienced representatives has made VR the most effective sports team and performing arts group fundraising platform available.
