“Scrip" Shopping Cart Fundraising
We are pleased to share some exciting news about a new “No-Sell” fundraising program for The Master’s Academy. It’s called “scrip,” and it’s the fundraising program that puts your regular household shopping dollars to work.
Scrip is simply gift cards from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift cards that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Target, Wal-Mart, Old Navy, Exxon Mobil, Starbucks, Darden Restaurants and many, many others. Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even Dennis Uniforms!
You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to our organization at a discount. Member families like yours buy the cards for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue.
