Support Pius X through everyday purchasesread more
Pius X is excited to share the news that we have partnered with Propelr, a re-loadable VISA prepaid card that can be used anywhere, anytime. When you use your Propelr card at participating merchants, a percentage of the purchase amount will be donated to Pius X. Propelr works just like a debit card, but with donation percentages as high as 20%. To learn more about Propelr, watch this video!
You can sign-up today to get your Propelr card and give back to Pius X.
View the growing list of merchants here.
Propelr is an easy, convenient and effective way to fund raise for our school and/or your church. You simply load your Propelr card with any amount between $50 and $1,500 and use it anywhere. When purchasing at a wide variety of participating merchants throughout Lincoln, a portion of the purchase will go back to Pius X or your church.
Propelr has a special feature for families. Each account can have up to five cards attached to it, including a card for your spouse and/or children. Kids' cards allow you to give your child a card with a limited balance or automatic allowance and see exactly where it is spent. That way you can help them pay for things like gas and groceries and they are helping to raise money for Pius X through their everyday purchases.
Lincoln Friends - Please consider signing up today and sharing this link with your family and friends!
Additional merchants for Omaha and beyond will be coming soon, and Propelr will expand outside of Nebraska in 2016.
