Scrip News

Did you know about Scrip NOW! ?This program allows scrip
to be purchased and either printed on paper or sent electronically
to your phone. This means you can purchase scrip other
than what might be available on hand in the office. Over 250
retailers (including Wal-Mart and Target, Lowe’s, JCPenney)
offer scripNow.

Because of the sheer convenience, almost $300 of the
$1300 in profits of the scrip program have come from the handful
of people using scripNow. Stop in and ask Sarah B. for more


Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift certificates from national and local  retailers.  They’re 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. 

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, and our school keeps the difference as revenue.  And scrip is exciting, because everybody 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.
