Jasper High School Band Scrip Program
Scrip is a fundraiser provided by our band that is offered throughout the school year and the program does not require students to sell anything. Band families and the band program earn revenue by purchasing gift cards.
How The Program Works
Families can order gift cards (or gift certificates) from a wide variety of merchants that participate in the Scrip program. You pay for them at face value; there are no additional fees charged to purchase them. Each month the band’s Scrip Coordinator will purchase these gift cards from a central provider at a discounted rate; the discount becomes our profit. These discounts range from a low of 2% up to as much as 25% from some retailers. When you go to a merchant or restaurant, simply use these gift cards instead of using cash or credit cards. They are worth their full face value.
Using our Scrip program to pay for goods and services in stores where you already shop, you can help the band boosters raise money to support the band. Scrip is exciting because everyone wins! The retailers get cash up front and receive your patronage. You get a powerful fundraising alternative that generates revenue for your student’s account and the band without your student having to sell anything.
The true beauty of Scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and dining out. Also, Scrip makes buying gifts for birthdays, special occasions and college students easy. Everyone loves receiving gift cards!
How does the rebate work?
Your student receives 90% of rebate earned while band keeps 10%. For example, if your order is $250 in Scrip gift cards and the rebate is 5%: Your student receives $11.25 (90% of rebate total $12.50) in account credit and Jasper Band keeps $1.25. This is just for purchasing a full face value of $250 gift card! You can use your student credit towards our Spring trip and the banquet.
