Wetaskiwin Co-op School Equity Program

We want to invite the Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools' families to participate in the Wetaskiwin Co-op School Equity Program, which will allow schools to earn equity on both educational and personal purchases. Liquor and purchases under personal charge accounts are not eligible. Each participating school will be assigned a membership number at no charge and at the till, customers at all Wetaskiwin Co-op locations will have the option to use a school membership number. The equity earned from each of these purchases will be calculated based on Wetaskiwin Co-op’s fiscal year, November 1st – October 31st and 100% of the equity earned will be paid out to the school in early January.


This type of fundraising initiative allows for greater donations back to the school and allows all schools to participate equally. For instance, if a school with 700 student had $1000 of purchases per family for a total of $700,000 in purchases that school would receive $14,000 cash back based on a 2% equity allocation. With the implementation of this program, the expectation is that both parties would participate in marketing and execution of this plan and any extra sponsorship requests from the schools will not be considered.
