Major Retailers Still Want To Give Our School Money, Don’t Tell Them No!
We are continuing with our SCRIP fundraising program. And with your help we can go from a
good year last year to a great year this year. This is one time you can make a difference every
time you fill up with gas or buy groceries.
Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift
certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates that you buy at
the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program (see the link for
These retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Member
families like yours, buy the certificates for full face value, then they redeem them for full face
value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You
earn money for our school 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.
The Holy Name scrip program promises to be a simple and effective fundraising program.
Thank you for your support.
