Parkside Elementary Scrip Program Dear PSE Parents and Staff:
Parkside PTO is excited to share information about an ongoing, monthly fundraising program for our organization. It’s called “scrip”, and it’s the fundraising program that works while you shop. Last year, the Parkside PTO earned $2200 through this “no selling” fundraiser.
Scrip is a fundraising program that allows you to purchase 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 Wal-Mart, Meijer, Jewel, BP, Shell, Subway, Steak-n-Shake, Target, Carl’s Ice Cream, and hundreds more. These retailers, along with many others, sell gift cards to our organization at a discount. Discounts vary from 1.5% to 20%, depending on retailer.
Parkside families, like yours, buy the certificates for full face value, redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue. Not only can the gift cards be given as gifts, but can also pay for groceries, dinners out, or gas.
Scrip order forms will be sent home through Skyward Access each month and will be due the first Thursday of each month. You can return your completed order form and payment to the PTO mailbox by the due date or your order can be placed on your online account. If purchasing online, you have the option to pay online through Presto Pay (similar to Pay Pal) or by sending a check- made payable to Parkside PTO, placed in the PTO mailbox. Orders will be sent home via your child’s backpack or may be picked up in the office on Friday, following week. You will indicate how you would like to receive your order on the order form. Many participating retailers allow our families to reload gift cards or print certificates at home, outside of the monthly order dates- making it convenient to order scrip when you need it. (Online account is required.)
Any question regarding the fundraiser or for help creating an online account, contact Angie Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 219-863-8065.
