SCRIP Fundraising Program
Scrip Fundraising has arrived! This is a no-selling program that allows our families to raise money for our school while making everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, or credit cards. For every gift card you purchase at face value, St. Charles receives instant cash! There are hundreds of popular retailers available from, gas and dining to shopping and travel. Best of all, YOU only pay face value!
Many non-profits have had great success when their families just re-think the way they shop! For instance, you know you need $100 in home improvement materials from Home Depot, Fido needs a $50 bag of dog food from PetCo, and you’ll have $100 worth of groceries at Cub and another $100 at Target for everything else. By purchasing either traditional gift cards or using ScripWallet for instant eCards, you have earned St. Charles an instant $11.75! Holiday shopping? We’ve got you covered. Here’s how!
There are 3 ways to order SCRIP:
- Complete the Scrip Order Form and return it to school, with a check made out to St. Charles Home and School (the % on the form is what St. Charles receives as instant cash back!). If you want gift cards sent home with your student, please return the SCRIP Delivery Waiver with your order. Or, volunteers will be available for pick-up before/after school in Room 104.
- Order traditional gift cards online at www.shopwithscrip.com and use the PrestoPay option or send a check to school. There are additional retailers and card denominations available online.
- Order SCRIP from your mobile device, any time, using the MyScripWallet app. These are digital/e-gift cards. Note, you must enroll in Presto Pay prior to using this option.
