Payout time is the most exciting time of the year here at Shoparoo!
Our fundraising year for Shoparoo officially begins on September 1st and ends August 31st (UTC) each year. After August 31st, we tally up the Roo Points each school earned since September 1st of the previous year.
To receive a check for a fundraising year, a school must have earned at least 25,000 Roo Points ($50) by the end of the day of August 31st.
All schools that exceed this threshold by August 31st will have their earned Roo Points converted to a cash amount and start the next fundraising year with 0 Roo Points.
Those schools with under 25,000 Roo Points ($50) total will have their earned Roo Points roll over into the next fundraising year.
All checks are issued directly to the school and mailed in a bright green envelope in late September.
Schools that win monthly sweepstakes receive a check immediately, but the Roo Point equivalent amount remains in the school's total for the rest of the fundraising year. Learn more about how sweepstakes work here.
