What is SCRIP? SCRIP (School Cash Rebate Incentive Program) is a gift card fundraising program which allows the purchaser to earn money towards their family’s annual scrip deposit of $275, and their child’s class fund, through the purchase of gift cards from dozens of vendors for every day expenses like food, gas, clothing, travel and entertainment.
How it works. As a non-profit, WSOC buys gifts cards at a discount from a variety of retailers for everyday expenses and then sells them at full value to WSOC families and friends. The school keeps the difference between the discounted price and the face value of the scrip, generating revenue. Rebates are generated as a percentage; for example, a $100 gift card at Mother’s Market at 10% generates $10 toward your SCRIP obligation. The yearly requirement is $275 in rebates per family (not per child) per year. After the $275 has been reached, 50% of any excess amount that you accrue in rebates through Scrip will go to your child(ren)’s class account; the remaining 50% will go to the school’s operating fund
