​​​Making giving back to your alma mater as easy as a swipe with 4Real Rewards

​The University of Johannesburg is creating a way for our students and alumni to earn real rewards and support UJ students at the same time. With over 6000 retailers on board, the 4Real Rewards programme means that supporting your university is as simple as swiping a card. ​

ARTICLE 6.jpgImagine being able to carry a single card that would work everywhere you shop. ​That's the vision of 4Real Rewards. The card gives you access to specific deals and discounts, each determined individually by the retailer – and while you shop, you also earn! While 50% of the points earned by swiping the 4Real card will automatically be allocated to your university, the rest is yours to use as you like. The 4Real card can also be used as a debit card. Some of the retailers where 4Real cardholders can earn points include Woolworths, Edgars, Jet, @home, Clicks, Dis-Chem and selected branches of Debonairs, Fishaways, Steers and Spur. It's an effortless way to make a difference in the life of someone who might otherwise not be able to afford their university fees.

The University of Johannesburg is committed to providing quality higher education to produce the leaders and skilled professionals needed to build the future of South Africa. However, it is an unfortunate reality that not every top-achieving student has the resources to make the leap from high school to university. In order to help such students actualise their potential, UJ has created the 555 Campaign, which aims to raise the R555 million needed to accommodate those students who cannot afford university fees. By choosing UJ as your 4Real beneficiary institution, you can contribute to this worthy cause every time you shop.

The university's partnership with 4Real Rewards will be rolled out in 2016 – watch this space to find out how you can sign up!
