Scrip

The REV Band Boosters are pleased to offer a fundraising program for students in REV’s instrumental music programs. It’s called “Scrip”, and it’s the fundraising program that works while you shop.
What Is Scrip? - Scrip is simply a word
that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is
gift certificates and gift cards from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates and gift cards that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Stater Bros., Arco, Starbuck’s, Barnes and Noble, Carl’s Jr., Pizza Hut, J.C. Penny and many, many others. 

How scrip generates revenue for you - You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, then redeem them for full face value, and our students keeps the difference as revenue in their individual Finance account. And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins:
  • The retailer gets cash up front, and repeat business.
  • You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling.
  • Our Instrumental Music students get a regular source of revenue
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for your student’s fair share and field trips without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.
 
Scrip is "shopping cart fundraising” - Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. Organization members produce revenue by making regular household purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip.

Parent Testimonial: Deborah Perez

Scrip is a terrific way to contribute to your student's fair share of our band expenses without spending any extra funds from your family budget. That's right - no selling candy, cookie dough, wrapping paper, etc. I've participated in the scrip program for the past 7 years. Not only has it funded 100% of my sons' fair share band expenses, but also fees for special trips they've participated in through the music program.

As a busy working Mom, I use scrip for basic expenses like groceries, fast food, gas, and home improvement/repair. For example, grocery scrip for the $100 I usually spend each week is a staple. I pay $100 to purchase the "scrip" (a Stater Bros. gift card). It buys a full $100 in groceries. Stater Bros. contributes 5% back to our REV Band charity (through our scrip vendor) into my son's account. Using just that one scrip vendor results in over $250 contributed every year - and I spend nothing extra from my budget. I started with just groceries for my first couple of orders, and then expanded into Arco gas cards (it saves me the fee for using my bank card at the pump and contributes to our account), and then added fast food and other vendors. Kohl's is another staple order for me. I use my Kohl's card to pay for purchases, and then order scrip to pay my credit card bill at the store. 4% of my Kohl's scrip purchase is added to our account. I average about $650 in scrip credit per year while purchasing scrip for just our family use.  I encourage all booster parents to check it out and give it a try!!

From Roxy Sims:

It is so convenient. You don't always have to carry money with you everywhere.  You don't have to run to the bank or ATM all the time plus you are helping your child/grandchild earn the money they need.
