Scrip Gift Cards
Major Retailers Want To Give Our School Money!
We’re pleased to share some exciting news about a fundraising program for our organization. It’s called “Scrip,” and it’s the fundraising program that works while you shop.
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 Starbucks (reloadable!), Whole Foods, 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.
Our school regularly places group orders. Members, watch for email announcements regarding special deals and dates of orders.
If you would like to purchase the Scrip from your own computer you can always sign up at www.shopwithscrip.com. Our school’s registration number is F52417921L7L5.
The Kids’ Co-op Scrip program promises to be a simple and effective fundraising program. Thanks for your support!
