CHECK THIS OUT! NEW FUNDRAISER: SCRIP

You can earn the school money without spending any additional money yourself.

Our newest fundraiser is here! Welcome to Scrip – Buy gift cards at face value and the school benefits! Scrip fundraising is a no-selling program that allows families to raise money for their children’s school. Scrip is just another way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards. You purchase gift cards from your organization at face value (either online or on paper), and your coordinator orders those cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate for your organization. It’s really that simple! For example, if you purchase a $50 gift card to Lands End, the school earns 16% – that’s $8.00 for the school and a full $50 gift card for you. You never walk away with something you’ll never use and gift cards start as low as $10.00. When you use scrip gift cards at your favorite retailers, you’re fundraising while you shop. Great Lakes Scrip Center offers hundreds of options from your favorite retailers, including grocery, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Just by using scrip to pay for your normal weekly purchases, you can easily raise $500 or more per year. For example, Shaw’s 5%, Amazon 3%, Shell gas 2.5% – the options go on and on. Pick and choose cards based on your needs or further search for the highest percentage that we’ll earn. There are always deals and bonus’ that benefit you as well. It’s time to put your shopping dollars to work! You can also join PrestoPay, which allows you to pay online, making the process smoother and quicker for you.

If you have questions, please contact Brandi Littlefield at Brandi.littlefield7 and watch for your child to bring the flyer home with more details!
