Major Retailers Still Want To Give Our School Money,

Don't Tell Them No!

 

Dear Parents:

 

            It's our fifth year with our SCRIP fundraising program.  And with your help we can go from a good year last year to a GREAT year this year.  This is one time you can make a difference every time you fill up with gas or buy groceries without participating you are telling the retailers we don't want their money.  DON'T LET THAT HAPPEN!  WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.

 

            Scrip is simply a word that means "substitute money" - in other words, scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers.  They're the same gift certificates that you buy at the store.  Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including JCPenney, The Gap, Shell, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster and many, many others.

 

            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, they redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue.  And scrip is exciting because everybody wins.

You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling...

 

Let me give you an example of how quickly this can grow:

150 families and faculty x $150 order per month =

$22,500.00 A MONTH IN SALES

And with an average discount of 10%

we made $2,250 A MONTH IN PROFIT!

That's over $20,000 PROFIT A SCHOOL YEAR!!!!!!!

 

The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work.  You earn money for our school 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.

            The Holy Name Scrip Program promises to be a simple and effective fundraising program.

Thanks for your support.
