How to Scrip!

What is it?
Scrip is an ongoing fundraiser run by the Band Booster Club in association with the Great Lakes Scrip Center. 

Instead of purchasing overpriced items through fundraising companies, Scrip takes the money that you already spend on gas, groceries, clothing, dining, travel, and recreation and puts a percentage of it towards supporting the students of the Hempfield Band Program!


How Does It Work?
For more information, visit http://www.glscrip.com/howscripworks/

Simply put:

1) Gift cards are purchased at face value through the Band Booster Club.  This can be done either with a paper order form (available for download or at the band office) or through Shopwithscrip.com

2) A percentage of EVERY purchase cost is "kicked back" to the Club!  (Percentages of donations vary by retailer and range from 2% to 15%)

3) Cards are sent to Lynne Ciepiela (our Scrip coordinator) who distributes them as they are received. 

NOTE: Many cards can be "Recharged" on ShopwithScrip.com, OR get INSTANT printable gift cards by using ScripNow 

4) A complete list of participating retailers is provided as an attachment at the bottom of this page. 

How Much Can I Earn? 


For example, take the following monthly expenditures:
  • Groceries - $200
  • Gasoline - $200
  • Dining Out - $100
  • Clothing - $100
  • Entertainment - $40

The estimated annual revenue for the Booster Club would be around $400 for this family!  

With 80 families involved...well, you can see how this can be a HUGE benefit for our program!

What is the Catch?
The catch (if you could call it that) is that families need to plan ahead a little and do their normal shopping with gift cards.  That being said, many families who have been involved with Scrip like how it can help keep a family on a budget!
