What is Scrip? It’s fundraising while you shop, and you won’t have to ask anyone to sell anything. Scrip fundraising gift cards are the same gift cards you would normally purchase from a retailer in your local retail stores such as Starbucks, Bed Bath and Beyond, Home Depot, Ralph's, etc. WLS gift cards work the same as the ones you purchase at a retail store. You’ll find cards you can use at grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, movie theaters, home improvement stores, and almost any business that accepts gift cards. Virtually anywhere you shop will accept some form of Scrip.
Why do I have to purchase scrip? WLS, as other schools and non-profit organizations, takes advantage ofselling scrip. You purchase the scrip from us at no extra cost to you and WLS earns a percentage for each purchase you make. We encourage you to use scrip cards to pay for your regular household purchases. When people hear about scrip, many ask, “What’s the catch?” There's no catch! Families earn money for the school just by making their regular household purchases.
Timeline for Scrip Purchases: Scrip purchases will be counted towards your $1,500.00 requirement beginning on July 1, 2014 and ending May 30, 2015. If you need to check your progress at anytime, please call the school office.
By simply planning ahead on everyday purchases like groceries, gas, restaurants, clothes, entertainment, and home repairs, the average WLS family can earn at least $11 a week for the school. That modest number adds up quickly!
