Welcome to the start of a new school year everyone! My name is Chara Webb and I am the Scrip Coordinator for Lakes PTO. This fabulous program has great potential to bring in good money for our school. Most fundraising programs sell “stuff.” Supporters buy the “stuff” to “help you out.” (i.e. “How little can I spend?”). With scrip, there’s no need to sell “stuff.” Scrip turns your everyday shopping (money you’re already going to spend) into cash for Lakes PTO when our families use retail gift cards to pay for everyday purchases instead of the usual credit/debit card or other money.

How does it work??
  •  Lakes families can buy retail gift cards through the SCRIP program at face value.
  • You can choose from nearly 400 national retail stores where you already shop i.e. – Meijer, Target, Walmart/Sam’s Club, Home Depot, Lands End, Bath and Body Works, iTunes,, your favorite restaurants, clothing stores, sporting stores, and many more.
  • As a non-profit SCRIP member, we are able to buy the gift cards at a discount (anywhere from 1-13%)
  • You school the gets the difference.

It’s really that simple!!!
