What is Scrip?
Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. You can use Scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, gas, and other essentials. And with every purchase you are earning revenue for our school!
How Scrip generates revenue….
Our Scrip provider acts on behalf of churches, schools and other non-profit organizations to purchase large amounts of scrip from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because the Scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. Our organization buys the Scrip from Scrip vendors at a discount, and resells the certificates to families like yours for full face value. The discount~ from two to fifteen percent or more~ is our organizations revenue.
Scrip is “shopping cart fundraising”
Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. Organization members produce revenue by making regular household purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with Scrip! Scrip is perfect for Birthdays, Teacher Appreciation, Dinner Night Out, Travel and Holiday Shopping!!
How do you get started?
You can purchase your Scrip cards every the second and fourth Wednesday of every month from 8:30am – 9:30am in the PTA office by the Library OR you can fill out our waiver form and receive your Scrip via Kid Mail.
