Major Retailers Want to Give Our School Money!
Dear Fairview Families:
Scrip is a fundraising program that works while you shop. 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 the scrip program including Kwik Trip, Festival Foods, Amazon, BP and many more.
We’re pleased to announce that Fairview PSO will begin selling Scrip for during the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year. We are hoping that the profits will replace the fall product fundraiser.
You’re probably wondering how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and Fairview PSO 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 school PSO gets a regular source of revenue.
The wonderful part of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school without spending additional dollars. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline, and even dining out. We will continue to add local retailers so take a close look each time you get an order form.
