Cosgriff SCRIP Fundraiser – 2016/2017 School Year
What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase SCRIP, you are purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. SCRIP allows you to generate revenue for the school by making regular household purchases you would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, coffee, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with SCRIP. SCRIP is purchased at a discount by Cosgriff and then sold to you at face value. There is no additional cost to you.
SCRIP for the 2016/2017 school year is an all-school participation program; each family is obligated to purchase $2,500 during the school year (July 1, 2016 through May 15, 2017). Families who wish to opt out of the program can do so for a tax deductible fee of $250.
SCRIP Participation Options
SCRIP options for the 2016/2017 school year are:
A – I will buy SCRIP at the table/ online. I agree to purchase $2,500 worth of cards by 15 May 2017. I understand that if I do not purchase a total of $2,500 of SCRIP from the school that my tuition account will be assessed 10% of my un-purchased SCRIP balance.
B – I will buy SCRIP via Monthly Standing Order. I wish to set up a Monthly Standing Order under which I agree to purchase at least $2,500 worth of SCRIP over a 10-month period beginning in August 2016.
