What Are eduPOINT$
Earn eduPOINT$ With Each Purchase!
The eduPOINT$ program is a key component of The Brain Fund’s efforts to create debt-free higher education options for U.S. students. Each time a participating consumer makes a purchase from one of our partner merchants, he or she earns eduPOINT$ redeemable for college funding for a deserving student or participant. These funds come directly from the advertising expenditures of our corporate partners and are available at no cost to students, families and other participants. With potential eduPOINT$ earnings of up to $1,000 each year per participant, the amount available for funding college expenses can quickly add up to provide real help in achieving a debt-free college education.
Businesses that partner with The Brain Fund to distribute eduPOINT$ assign a specific number of points for each purchase based on the amount spent and the products or services involved in the transaction. The funds earned through the eduPOINT$ program are saved in a 529 College Savings Plan in the name of the chosen student or participant and can be used along with scholarships and other sources of financial aid to significantly reduce the costs of higher education for students.
Individuals who serve as an Ambassador for The Brain Fund can also earn eduPOINT$ toward college educations for themselves or for a specific beneficiary. These dedicated individuals commit to promoting the programs and activities of The Brain Fund by raising awareness of the program in their local communities, recruiting new business partners to participate in the eduPOINT$ program and to advertise through the GridPAGES platform and by encouraging students and their families to enroll in the program and begin earning their way toward a debt-free higher education.
Once earned through qualifying purchases or activities performed on behalf of The Brain Fund, eduPOINT$ may be redeemed to pay for tuition, student fees, books and other educational expenses at accredited colleges and universities. Redeemed eduPOINT$ never expire, making it easy for aspiring students to achieve significant sums toward their college educations. Participation in the eduPOINT$ program is absolutely free for consumers and can pave the way for a brighter future with little or no student loan debt upon graduation for U.S. students.
