Major Retailers Want to Give Our Band Money!
We have looked into a number of ways to raise the money we need and we have decided to bring back the Great Lakes Scrip Program just in time for the holidays. For those of you who are new to the program, just do your holiday shopping with gift cards and help the band at the same time. Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates or gift cards to our organization at a discount. Families buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and the band keeps the difference as revenue.
We will place orders on the 5th and the 20th of each month as long as we get a minimum order. The cards should be back in 5 business days and will be sent home with your student. Some merchants will even let you print your certificates at home or reload cards that you have ordered if you don’t want to wait!
• The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business…
• We get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling…
• Our band gets a regular source of revenue.
You earn money for our band without spending a single additional penny. 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. Rewards add up even faster if you use Scrip for major purchases such as computers, furniture or vacations such as Walt Disney World..
Signing up is easy. Go to www.shopwithscrip.com, create an account and register using our band’s Enrollment Code: L71L21A735911. Place your order and send a check to the band room. If each family participates, we can meet our fundraising goal to cover our budget through the end of the school year.
