We’re pleased to share some exciting news about a fundraising program for our organization. It’s called “scrip”, and it’s the fundraising program that works while you shop.
Why do I want to do Scrip?
This program will raise money directly for your son without having to sell anything or ask for money from friends. All revenue earned per player will go directly to each individual player’s fundraising account. Revenue earned exceeding registration will be considered a donation in the general team fundraising account.
What is Scrip?
Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is 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 Tom Thumb, Starbucks, Walmart, JCPenney, The Gap, CVS, Pizza Hut, Chilies and many, many others.
How does Scrip work?
You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Member families like you buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our organization keeps the difference as revenue. And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins:
• The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business…
• You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling…
• Our organization gets a regular source of revenue.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for Plano Lacrosse without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.
