When participants completed the anchor survey, they received 20 tokens which they allocated to an eligible not-for-profit community group. For each pulse survey completed, participants earn four tokens which they can similarly allocate. Participants allocate their tokens to eligible community groups who can then cash these in – 1000 tokens are worth $500. Alternatively, the community group can cash in tokens pro rata after 6 months if they haven’t yet reached 1000 tokens. For example, 500 tokens would be equal to $250.
Groups or organisations nominate to join the rewards scheme. They must be not-for-profit groups operating in the Newcastle region, and may be school P&C’s, charities, sports clubs or other organisations. There is no limit to the number of credits any one community group can accrue.
Full eligibility criteria are given in the Terms & Conditions.
There is no limit to the number of credits any one community group can accrue. The challenge for community groups is to get their networks motivated to complete surveys to trigger rewards – CSIRO can provide community groups with material to help do this.
