Have you ever brought in a box of candy bars to your office or set out a fundraising form so your co-workers could order a pizza kit, cookie dough, candles, or the classic wrapping paper? You need to raise money for your child’s school, but the selling and soliciting associated with old school fundraising is outdated and exhausting. Good news: you don’t have to do that to raise money! Set down the order forms and start using scrip.
Scrip, or gift card fundraising, is fundraising while you shop®. Think of your monthly budget for a minute: you need the staples like groceries and gas, and maybe you even go out to eat a couple of times a month. You could pay for all of these expenses with a gift card and raise money for your school or nonprofit all at the same time.
Still sound too good to be true? Here’s how it works: your organization enrolls in a scrip program on ShopWithScrip.com. Families in your organization join and then they can place orders for the over 750 retailer brands we offer. The gift cards you purchase on ShopWithScrip are the same ones you would buy in the store, but they all have a rebate on them, anywhere from 2 to 16%. When you buy the card at face value, the rebate percentage goes directly to your organization, so it’s immediate fundraising! Plus, your organization can give families a portion of their earnings back, which keeps families actively participating and raises even more money for your organization.
In addition to our physical cards, some cards are reloadable, and we also offer over 300 eGift cards that you can purchase and sometimes redeem right from your mobile device for easy, on-the-go convenience.
For almost 23 years, ShopWithScrip has helped members of over 30,000 nonprofit organizations raise money in their everyday life. We want to save you the stress of selling, and help you start raising money with scrip!
