WHAT IS SCRIP??
Scrip is gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program, see the enclosed list of retailers and order form.
You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple—scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, our school keeps the difference as revenue and the profits go towards your family profit obligation.
FOR EXAMPLE - Chipotle Scrip gives back 10% for each gift card purchase. If you purchase a $50 Chipotle gift card through our Scrip program, then $5 of that purchase comes back to our school and is applied to your family's profit obligation!
And scrip is exciting, because everyone wins. The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business…
You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves No Selling…
Our school gets a regular source of revenue.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.
All cards can be used to shop online at the retailer’s site using the serial numbers on the back of the card.
