Fundraisers are a very important way that parents and families can donate time, money, or both to help support the future of East Richland Christian and reach fundraising goals. In addition to serving opportunities and volunteer positions across our activities and fundraising events, there are several other programs families can participate in that support the school:
SCRIP Program – A fundraiser that doesn’t require you, or anyone else, to spend any money that isn’t already being spent for products you are already purchasing! You, and/or friends and family, purchase gift cards to buy products you want. The gift cards are purchased at face value and the retailers offer a rebate to the school for each card purchased. The rebates vary from between 1-15% of the value of the gift card. The rebates are shared with families based on their participation in the program. The more cards you sell or purchase, the more rebate you will receive. The school keeps 50% of the rebates to use just like other fundraising money funding project that benefit the school and students, and the other 50% is passed onto the families to use for tuition credit. The earning potential is unlimited. All you have to do is purchase or sell these gift cards to use on products you already purchase and you are earning yourself free money towards tuition. It’s easy for one family using scrip to generate $600 – $1,000 or more in one year just by using SCRIP to purchase the same every-day products they are already using. There are over 700 retailers for gas, groceries, clothing stores, restaurants, home improvement and entertainment that participate in SCRIP. It is easy to find a gift card for almost any store were you already shop. For a full retailer list and more information about the program, go here www.shopwithscrip.com.
