Scrip is simply a word that means substitute money
in other words, scrip is gift certificates from national and local
retailers. Theyre the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular
retailers participate in our scrip program including JCPenney, The Gap, Shell, Pizza Hut,
Red Lobster and many, many others.
Youre probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. Its simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue. Our school can earn from two to fifteen percent of the value of the purchase.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.Scrip is "shopping cart fundraising. The reason for the effectiveness of scrip is simple: families generate revenue through purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip.
An organization of 150 families easily spends between one and two million dollars per year on food, clothing and other essentials. If these families use scrip for these purchases, they can raise as much as $40,000 to $80,000 per year for their organization --without spending an additional penny.
Scrip order forms will be sent home twice a month in your child's Tuesday folder. Send your order back to school in the Tuesday folder. You can either pick up your scrip in the office the next week, or have your child bring the order home.
