More About SCRIP

What is SCRIP?

Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift cards & certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift cards & certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Publix, Wal-Mart, Target, Dennis Uniforms, Kohls, Outback, Home Depot, Dick’s Sporting Goods and many, many others. In fact, we have over 730 vendors nation-wide!

How does purchasing SCRIP gift cards raise money for the school?

It’s simple — scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift cards & certificates to our organization at a discount. For example, if you purchase a $100 Home Depot scrip card, you will receive a $100 value scrip card. The scrip program purchased the $100 scrip card for $96. The $4 difference is the profit for the scrip program.
