No-Selling, Everyday Fundraising
Traditional fundraisers like bake sales or auctions can provide a significant, one-time boost to your nonprofit organization’s funding. They can be effective, but they also take a lot of time and effort. Product fundraisers are popular too, but you can only ask parents to sell cookie dough or wrapping paper so many times per year.
Scrip fundraising is different.
A scrip program gives members of your organization the power to fundraise all the time, without doing anything more than using scrip gift cards to pay for their everyday shopping. They don’t have to spend money on things they don’t need, make room to organize events in their busy schedules, or sell to friends and relatives.
How Scrip Makes Fundraising Easy
When families in your organization place orders for scrip, they pay full face value for the gift cards.
So if someone orders a $100 gift card for The Home Depot, they’re paying you $100 and getting the full value of what they paid. Now, when your organization places an order with us, you pay less than the full face value for cards (2 – 13% less, depending on the retailer). The Home Depot, for example, offers a 4% rebate, so your organization pays $96 for that $100 gift card. What happens to that $4 difference? It’s awarded to your program as a rebate!
The OLC Education Foundation purchases gift cards at a discount and sells them at face value. The rebates earned go to the Education Foundation. Families participating in the Scrip program can choose to designate up to 50% of rebates they earn toward OLC Preschool tuition, K-8 registration and curriculum fees, or Secondary Catholic School tuition (West Catholic or Catholic Central).
The OLC Education Foundation Scrip Program is run by volunteers.
