Back to School means Back to Scrip!
Welcome back loyal scrip purchasers and welcome to our new Grand View families. Scrip is one of the largest fundraisers for our school and only successful with your participation. Here’s how it works….We buy gift cards both from local and national merchants at a discounted price and then we sell the cards to you at face value. It’s a savings ranging anywhere from 3-25% depending on the vendor when we buy it, and that up front savings is how we earn money. You then get to go spend the cards at face value knowing that Grand View is making money! So get out those shopping lists, dine out with your family and start to prepare for the holidays by stopping by the scrip table or ordering online on this page.
What is Scrip?
Scrip is an easy fundraiser with no cost to you. Many of the places you shop and dine offer gift certificates and gift cards to schools at a discounted rate. They spend just like cash and Grand View gets the difference between the face value and the discounted rate. Thanks to purchases made with Scrip and through our Reward Programs by Grand View families last year, merchants contributed over $25,000 to our school.
How to Order
All you need to do is complete the online form. You can use cash, checks, or an Electronic Funds Transfer for payment. We usually fill and deliver orders within 2 days of order submission. Once you submit/receive your order please send in your check to the GV office ASAP. Place it in an envelope with “Scrip Payment” written on the outside to ensure accurate routing.
Monthly Standing Orders (MSO)
The best way to remember to use Scrip is an MSO. You decide what you use on a regular basis (perhaps a coffee card or two, some restaurants that you know you go to at least once a month, movie tickets, what will cover groceries for the month) and submit a New Monthly Standing Order ($50 minimum). Then on the first Tuesday of every month school is in session, you will receive that amount of scrip via the delivery option you choose. Click here for delivery dates. It’s automatic and easy! You can use the web form when needed to revise your MSO as your needs change. Once you have established an MSO you can then use a web One Time Order, or stop by the scrip table to pick up certificates for merchants you use on occasion.
You can opt to pick up your order in the GV Office, or have it delivered to your child’s teacher who will then place it in your child’s backpack to be brought home. If you choose the Backpack option, please understand that it is at your risk. Once we hand it to the teacher, and the teacher has given it to your child, we can no longer be responsible for what happens to it. If you choose Backpack, you are agreeing that you will deem your order received once it has been delivered to the designated teacher’s classroom.
Other Ways to Give Effortlessly
In addition to SCRIP, there are several other ways to give without impacting your wallet. Check out our Reward Programs page for more info.
