The SCRIP program is an efficient and easy method of fundraising. It’s free for you but very profitable for the school community.
The SCRIP program offers a large selection of prepaid cards from over 750 retailers.
Participating retailers give a discount between 2% and 15% that directly benefits the FASSV PTA. There is no cost for you.
You can use a SCRIP card like any other cash or gift card to pay for everyday shopping like food, clothing, gas, or other purchases. For each of your purchases the FASSV PTA receives money, which is then used to support enrichment activities for our children such as field trips, dance classes (preschool), painting (Kindergarden), ceramics classes (1st grade), the Marine Science Center program (3rd grade), garden maintenance, and much more.
If you don’t have a SCRIP account yet, please create one by following these few easy steps:
- Go to www.shopwithscrip.com.
- Click on “register”.
- Choose “join a scrip program”.
- Enter the enrollment code DC8DB5C83L665 to set up your family’s account.
You are now ready to order!
Once you have placed an order, we prepare your cards for you to pick up each Friday morning between 8:00 am and 8:30 am. Please pay by check or by cash time of pick up.
Please note you will also have the option to purchase SCRIP cards from our available card inventory each Friday morning.
Last but not least, here is an example how it works:
“Do you think you spend $200 in gas each month? $400 in groceries? $50 at Target? $25 at Starbucks?
If so, by purchasing these cards through SCRIP, the cost would be the same for you but the PTA would get $22 back in rebates from this single order.
Now imagine you do this for the 8 remaining months of the school year… no additional cost to you, $176 to the PTA.
Now imagine all 119 families at FASSV did the same, that would be no additional cost to anyone, but $20,944 to the PTA.
This covers the entire budget for the year, and it has not cost anyone anything.
BTW, there are vendors who offer even greater rebates. Each $100 Gap card purchased through SCRIP represents $14 back to the PTA. $100 Macy’s card means $10 back to the PTA. And there are many more like these!”
Support the School Community by participating in our SCRIP Program and help contribute to the activities that enrich the life of our children.
