FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2015) - New Wave Holdings, Inc. (OTC: NWAV), an electronic payment services and solutions company with a focus in developing innovative prepaid programs, is thrilled to announce it has received Issuing bank approval for its SchoolFuel GPR debit card program.

The SchoolFuel program has also been officially approved by a major network (V, MC, AMEX, Discover) and intends to revolutionize fundraising for schools, churches and club sports. Details regarding Network and Issuing bank will be announced once proper permissions are received.

SchoolFuel is New Wave's inaugural program which consists of a GPR debit card that streamlines current scrip programs by providing parents and faculty with a Network Co-Branded Prepaid Reloadable Debit Card, allowing a donation to be effected with each and every swipe of the card, regardless of where it is used.

The program is described as "scrip on steroids", and streamlines existing scrip provider platforms that, over the past 20 years, have seen over $9 billion in retail sales and more than half a billion dollars donated to non-profit organizations. The SchoolFuel card will also provide retailer discounts and value-added benefits to its cardholders, making it a one-of-a-kind tool.

As well, SchoolFuel's program managing partner, FirstView Financial, has stated that the card will be launched and available to distribute in the next 10-14 weeks.

In the meantime, SchoolFuel will launch its website and work to secure participating retailers for the program. "This will be an ongoing initiative for SchoolFuel. The more retailers that can be secured, the more powerful the program," states NWAV Chairman and SchoolFuel co-founder, Mark B. Newbauer.

"This is a dream come true," he continues. "This program is the result of years of hard work, creativity and persistence and we finally have it approved as it was meant to be. Execution is everything and we intend to proceed diligently and enthusiastically to cultivate this program as a powerful staple in the world of fundraising."

Finally, the Outstanding Share count as reported on OTC Markets remains unchanged and New Wave has committed to keeping the OS locked through at least EOY 2015.
