WHAT IS A SCRIP?

Click HERE for a quick overview. SCRIP is a term that means "substitute money." Scrip is an on-going Choir Booster fundraiser. Choir Booster members can help support the choir and contribute to their student’s choir trip account without spending any additional money. You just have to change the way you pay for purchases. Instead of paying with your credit card, cash or check, you buy the scrip card for a specific retailer in advance and then make your purchases with it. You can shop at retailers you usually patronize and spend what you normally do.

HOW DOES SCRIP WORK?

Parents will purchase "Scrip" (similar to gift cards or gift certificates) from the Choir Boosters for the face value of the card and spend it with retailers where they get credit for the full face value. The Choir Boosters receive a discount from the retailers at the time the purchase of the scrip card is made. For example, you buy a $100 Randall’s gift card through the scrip program, you pay $100 for it, and it is worth $100 when you use it to shop at Randall’s. The Boosters get a 9% discount on the card, and the $9 saved is applied 100% to your student’s choir trip account. The discount varies by retailer, so check the Scrip retailer list for that rate. Some retailers also run "specials" from time to time where cards purchased that month will have a higher discount rate than normal.

WHEN DO WE BUY SCRIP?

Scrip is an on-going fundraiser project. While you may be accustomed to fundraisers that focus on the sale of specific items for a short period of time and have a defined end date, this program will continue throughout the year. It may take some initial effort to develop the habit of ordering your scrip every month, but once you get in a routine of ordering and using scrip cards, the process should be quite easy. If you use scrip regularly for grocery purchases, when you go Christmas shopping, buy gift cards, buy school clothes and shoes, or make large purchases, the dollars will definitely start to add up in your student’s trip account.

NEW PAYMENT OPTION!

We have added another option to Scrip payment called "PrestoPay." This feature allows you to pay with your bank account online so it eliminates having to put a check in the choir safe. To set up PrestoPay takes a couple of days, so make sure you do so before the order date if you want to use this option. Check it out on the Scrip website. (NOTE: There is a convenience fee of $0.15 for each order charged by GLSCRIP.)
