What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a year-round fundraising program that doesn’t require you to sell anything. This isn’t designed to replace specific fundraisers held throughout the year. Instead, this program isn’t tied to any one program or booster club so it contributes to the entire student body and Sober Grad! It’s a win-win way to benefit all U-Prep students.
How does it work?
With SCRIP, you simply change the form of payment you use on your most common purchases. You can really benefit the students by buying gift cards from U-Prep to your favorite merchants and using those as your form of payment. Each gift card has a rebate percentage linked to it, and while you pay the face value of the card (no additional cost to you), U-Prep receives the rebate amount.
You buy groceries and gasoline every month. Let’s assume that you also buy an occasional fancy coffee from your favorite shop. Look how using SCRIP as your form of payment at some of our local merchants can help U-Prep:
- Holiday Market - $300/month with a 10% rebate = $30.00
- ARCO - $200/month with a 1.5% rebate = $3.00
- Starbucks - $25/month with a 7% rebate = $1.75
- TOTAL MONTHLY CONTRIBUTION TO THE SCHOOL = $34.75
If you purchase the above model for all 10 school months, you will raise $347.50 for UPrep without having to sell anything or spend any extra money. If 10 families were to purchase using the above model, UPrep would receive $3,475.00/year; if 100 families, then $34,750.00/year!
Is there a minimum purchase?
How do I order SCRIP?
There are several ways to order SCRIP. No matter how you order, physical cards will be delivered to the U-Prep main office, and you will receive an email when they are ready for pickup. eGift cards and reloaded gift cards ordered online or through MyScripWallet can be used instantly in most cases.
