Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words SCRIP are gift certificates/cards 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 non – profit organization at a discount. School families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and you keep the difference for tuition. And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins:
- The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business
- You get a powerful tuition fundraising alternative that is applied to YOUR tuition…
- It helps our school keep tuition affordable – the more you buy the more you save.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for your tuition 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.
You may order scrip online using ShopwithScrip or place an order with an order form. An order form is included, along with information relative to ordering online. Your student turns in the orders on scrip days and brings home the gift cards within a few days.
