Here are some easy things you can do to help!
We're pleased to share some exciting news about a fundraising program for our organization. It's called "Scrip", and it's the fundraising program that works while you shop. Scrip is simply a word that means "substitute money" - in other words, Scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. They're the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our Scrip program including Meijer, D & W, JCPenney, Wendy's, Shell, Pizza Hut, Target, Speedway, Home Depot and many, many others.
You're probably asking yourself how these stores help raise money. It's simple -- Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gilft certificates to our organization at a discount. Member families like ours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue. And Scrip is exciting, because everybody wins:
The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business...
You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling...
Your student receives funds directly deposited into their Band Boosters account.
Caledonia Band Boosters has chosen to place 90% of the posted revenue into your student's individual band account. The remaining 10% will go to the Band Boosters for shipping, handling and the purchase of supplies. (The funds in your student's band account may be used for marching band camp, uniform and instrument fees, and the like. Any funds remaining in your student's account will be donated to the Caledonia Band Booster's when you student leaves the band program).
The beauty of Scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with Scrip at the stores that participate in the Scrip program! And Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out. The Caledonia Band Boosters Scrip program promises to be a simple and effective fundraising program.
