General Terms and Conditions
Ritchies Community Benefit Program
In addition to great member only specials, offers and competitions, Ritchies Card Members are given the opportunity to support their favourite club, school or charity.
Customers are invited to nominate a club, school or charity from those listed on our App and website.
Note: Participating Ritchies stores exclude stores trading under the Fishers IGA banner in North Western Victoria.
Why nominate a Recipient?
The Community Benefit Program enables us to pay a percentage of your shop to the club, school, or charity of your choice.
To qualify for a payment, $2,000 must be spent within a month between all customers who nominate the organisation, (excluding tobacco, gift cards and phone recharges). The minimum payment is $10 and there is no maximum, so the more people who nominate the organisation the better.
Calculations are made at the end of the month, and then totals reset for the start of the next month.
All contributions are paid by Ritchies in Australian dollars, are not subject to GST and are made by electronic funds transfer directly into the bank account provided by the eligible recipient.
Some clubs, schools and charities have similar names. Customers should ensure that they are precise with the nomination of their intended recipient.
If your intended recipient is not listed on our website please ask them to join the program, once registered they will be added to our list of recipients.
