Instructions for Scrip Gift Cards

What is Scrip?
Scrip is Fundraising While You Shop. This amazingly successful fundraising program has worked for thousands of sports teams, athletic booster clubs and other non-profits! Scrip turns everyday shopping into cash for the Totowa PAL when families use retail gift cards to pay for everyday purchases (like gas and groceries) instead of the usual credit/debit card or cash.

The Basics of a Scrip Program:
You buy retail gift cards through your scrip program at face value.
You choose from nearly 400 national retail stores where you already shop.
The club buys the gift cards at 1-13% less than face value (varies by retailer).
The difference between face value and what you pay = earnings for the Totowa PAL.

Here an example
On average, the Smith family spends $500 on groceries and $200 on gas per month. Rather than using her credit or debit card in the checkout line or at the pump, Mrs. Smith purchases an equivalent amount of gift cards through the Totowa PAL Scrip Fundraiser program, earning money for the PAL while not spending any additional money!
