The Gift Card Program (Scrip) is one of the best fundraisers to help CRS earn money in a hassle-free way! There is no selling involved. It’s convenient to use and gift cards make great gifts!
The reason why this works is simple: CRS families generate revenue through purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with Scrip.
How the program works: You purchase the gift cards through the PTO. An order form will be sent home once a month (twice in December) with the due/delivery dates on them. These shopping cards are the same cards that you would get if you purchased them directly from the store.
For example, if you bought a $50 Stop & Shop card it would cost you $50 and then is redeemable at the store for the full $50. Since you bought the cards through the PTO, the PTO gets a commission (percentage is listed next to the retailer on the order form) on the sale.
If 100 families purchased just $100 a month in Stop & Shop cards at 4% earnings, (we all use groceries) from Sept-June,
our school would earn $4,000!
