$crip is the easiest fundraiser out there! It is another word for gift certificates. You trade your dollars for $crip gift cards and participating stores and restaurants supply the profit—dollar for dollar you lose nothing while the kids gain everything. This program is an incredibly powerful fundraising tool because it has the potential to generate a large amount of money for our school at no cost to parents.
Gift cards and/or certificates for dozens of local and national merchants are available through the $crip program. You make your purchases with a gift card rather than cash, on things you would already be purchasing, and the merchant donates between 2% and 43% of your purchase to our school.
Because the $crip program is so important, the Board requests that every family participate to the maximum extent possible each month. Consider this: A family that participates at the level of only $100 per week will generate almost $200 in donations to our school over the course of the school year. Multiply this by 109 families, and you’ll see why this program is so important.
There are four ways to participate with the $crip program:
1) Order $crip certificates online. You will find a payment choice for check or billing to your account. For using the billing option please note that your account must be current. If the account is delinquent beyond 30 days, this option will not be available. If you choose to pay by check please follow the directions in the confirmation page/email and place the check in the $crip folder located underneath the parent folders in the GSP front lobby.
2) $crip paper order forms are also available at the school in the $crip rack on the parent folder cabinet. Complete the form, attach your check, and place the form and check in the $crip folder. Please be prompt in retrieving your order from Gertrud at the front desk. Orders are placed every other Monday and are ready for pickup Thursday at 2:50 pm of the same week.
3) Register with e$crip. Register any or all of your existing grocery loyalty, debit and credit cards for use with eScrip at www.escrip.com and participating national, regional and local merchants will make monthly contributions to GSP based on the value of your purchases. Go to www.escrip.com and register your grocery loyalty, debit and credit cards. Use our group/school ID#: 155647797.
4) e$crip online mall. If you prefer to shop without registering, you can support our school by clicking the e$crip online mall button below and shop online with over 700 merchant partners like Amazon.com, Toysrus.com, Barnesandnoble.com and lego.com. Our school will receive your shopping contributions if you click the "Add" box next to our school, then select "Next" and you'll be on your way!
