Washington D.C. Fundraising Information
Schmucker Scrip Program
* It’s Free Money for your student’s account!! *
What is it?
Scrip is a national fundraising program for non-profit organizations. Over 30,000 different organizations use Scrip; the PHM district PTO’s have been running this program for years. The concept is simple. You purchase gift cards and a rebate is given back. It is truly free money! Here is why. There are over 700 retailers that sell their gift cards to Scrip at various discounts. You order these gift cards from Scrip at full face value, and the PTO, as the non-profit organization, receives the rebate. In our case, the PTO puts 100% of that rebate into your child’s school DC account and you receive the full value of the gift card - it’s a win-win!
How does it work?
There are 3 types of gift cards you can purchase (note - not every retailer offers all three options):
Physical - these are just like the gift cards you buy in a store. The PTO places an order for these once per month.
Reload - once you have purchased a gift card from Scrip, some retailers offer the ability to just “reload” that same card. Depending on how you pay for the Reload, the amount will either be applied to the card within 2 days.
ScripNow - this is an electronic gift card. The ScripNow “e-card” will be available for you to use within minutes. You will receive an email when your ScripNow e-card is available. It will also show up in your Scrip account online. It will also appear in your My Scrip Wallet account on your smartphone if you have the mobile website downloaded.
Here is the only way to pay for your gift cards: PrestoPay
PrestoPay is a payment directly to Scrip. Your bank account is linked directly to the Scrip website via a secure ACH connection - the same way you pay bills online. There is a $0.15 fee per order.
