A Guide to purchasing and using Scrip
What is SCRIP? – Scrip is fundraising with gift cards.
SCRIP is hands-down the easiest way to give to our school, and the best part is it doesn’t cost you an extra cent! Beverly Cleary’s PTA purchases gift cards at a discount. You purchase a gift card at its full value and do your everyday shopping. The difference earned goes to our school for learning supplies and student programs.
For example, Fred Meyer and New Season both sell the PTA their gift cards at a 5% discount. When you purchase a $100 gift card for your everyday grocery shopping, the PTA earns $5 for Beverly Cleary School. The money raised from Scrip sales is donated by the business, not your family.
Consider this: if 300 of our families paid for their groceries with $100 of Fred Meyer or New Seasons gift cards just once a month this year, we would raise over $15,000. That's a lot of money supporting our school!
Sounds good! But how does the PTA use the money raised by gift card sales?
The PTA Grants Committee works with Beverly Cleary teachers and staff to grant funds for a wide variety of school needs, from classroom books and carpets, to musical instruments and gardening supplies.
