What is SCRIP?

Scrip is a simple, free and easy way to earn money for Garden School that costs you nothing, but raises much needed funding for the school. The “fundraiser” actually earns YOU money. And, you can earn tuition credits for your child (children)!!

The PTA purchases gift cards to popular stores at a discount of 2%-25%. The PTA sells these gift cards at their face value. The profit is split 80% going to the PTA to fund current projects and 20% going to the families as tuition credit.

Where can I order SCRIP?

We encourage parents to order from the website www.shopwithscrip.com. Here is how to do it:

  • Go to www.shopwithscrip.com and register your family. The Garden School’s enrollment code used for registration is: 16584C5521336. Please make sure to include the name of your oldest child.
  • Place your order on the Shop With SCRIP website. After you confirm your order there are a few options for payment.
  • You may pay immediately using the SCRIP company’s PrestoPay e-check system. You must enroll separately for this by clicking on the link to the left on the Shop With SCRIP website.
  • You may also bring a check or money order to the school office with the SCRIP order number and have Mary put it in the PTA mailbox or send payment in with your child to give to their homeroom teacher. (We prefer these two methods (check/money order or PrestoPay) as there are no additional fees, credit cards charge around 3.5% of the transaction).
  • For those of you who wish to pay with a credit card that may be done online through the PTA’s Paypal account, the link is below.
  • SCRIP gift card orders can also be placed using the paper order forms and turned into the school office with payment for the PTA.
  • Who can Participate?

    EVERYONE! The more people you get to buy SCRIP gift cards, the more money you earn for tuition. We encourage every family to ask their relatives and neighbors to participate. Just make sure they list your child’s name and grade when placing an order so we can keep track of your earnings.

    How and when do I get my SCRIP gift cards?

    Currently we are placing orders for SCRIP on the last Friday of every month. SCRIP gift cards will be available the following Thursday.
