Scrip Fundraiser

Posted Nov 17, 2017 | Category: Fundraisers

OH DEER!

It’s That Time of Year Again! After much anticipation, the holiday season is here again! You’re busy with holiday gift shopping, meal planning and preparation, and making time to see your family and friends at gatherings and parties. Shop with scrip for all of your holiday needs so you can earn money for your organization and love the holidays! Order your chosen gift cards on our Scrip ordering form  and earn money for Ames PTA.

 

What is Scrip Fundraising?

Scrip fundraising is a program that enables families to raise money for their non-profi­t organization (NPO). Scrip is just another way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards.

  1. You purchase gift cards from using our Family Order Form at face value.
  2. The coordinator orders those cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a reduced price.
  3. The coordinator delivers your gift cards.
  4. The difference is an instant rebate for our PTA.

It’s really that simple!

All order forms along with the payment are due December 1st to guarantee delivery before our Winter Break. Please make the checks payable to Ames PTA and send it along with your completed order form in envelope marked SCRIP ORDER

 

Total profit percentages are listed – amount in rebate column is profit percentage credited toward Ames PTA.  If you have questions, contact Emilia Kowalski at kubiakemilia@hotmail.com.
