What is scrip?
Scrip is a way to fundraise through gift cards. When you buy scrip, PALS earns a percentage of your purchase, which then goes towards student enrichment such as playground equipment, field trips, and other activities. Scrip is one of our major fundraising activities. Use scrip gift cards for everyday shopping and raise funds without having to sell stuff. PALS asks every family to set a yearly goal of raising $200 through scrip purchases. For example, if you buy a $100 card that has a 5% rebate, you’ve earned $5 for PALS.
We have scrip gift cards available for over 300 retailers, including Fred Meyer, Haggen, Whole Foods, Amazon, Starbucks, Regal Theatres, and many more. You can get physical gift cards, electronic cards, and reloadable cards.
How do I buy Scrip?
Buy in person.
PALS keeps a stock of the most popular cards (scrip-to-go) that you can buy with cash or check at the Lower School on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, 8:00 – 8:30.
Drop off a form. You can fill out a SCRIP TO GO Order Form and include a check; drop it off in the PALS box at either the Lower or Upper School. We’ll fill your order and let you know when it’s ready for pickup. You can also set up regular monthly orders.
Create an account at shopwithscrip.com and use enrollment code 9562ELE646983. Then shop from a huge list of national retailers. You can choose from physical or electronic cards, or you can reload an existing card. Then pay by linking your checking account or drop off a check at school. Your e-cards and reloads will be released after your payment is received.
Are there deadlines for online orders?
PALS orders scrip twice a month. Please place your order by the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month. Your order will be ready for pickup on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month.
Do you have questions? Or would you like to volunteer to sell scrip? We would love to have regular sales at school pickup times, 2:45 – 3:15.
