Gift cards and certificates for dozens of local & national merchants are available for purchase through this program coordinated by Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation. New businesses and restaurants are constantly being added, so, please check often for the latest list.
The best part of the scrip program is that you are spending money you would probably be spending anyway. You purchase the gift cards at their face value, so it costs you nothing extra. The merchants sell them to the scrip program at a discount so schools and students benefit!
The majority of the funds generated from the sale of the cards are returned to parent groups at participating schools to use for the school projects of their choice. Examples of past projects funded with proceeds include the construction of jogging trails, the installation of school reader board signs, and support for music programs.
Orders are placed approximately every other Monday (see the Scrip Calendar below) and the Scrip will be returned to the school on the Friday of that same week. You can order through your neighborhood school, or you can contact the program coordinator directly to place your order. (Please check the Scrip Order form for our coordinator's contact information.)
Purchases can be made by cash or check, and you can now charge your purchases to your Visa/Mastercard making it possible for you to earn credit card miles and awards at the same time that your patronage helps to benefit schools.
NEW AND EXCITING! We now have Reloadable cards and "Intant Scrip!"
Reloadable cards: You can now reload the cards listed below through the Scrip program. Provide the complete number from back of the card (not the PIN) and indicate how much you want loaded on that card. Payment can be with a check or credit card with your regular order. The initial card has to be purchased through the scrip program. Reloads can be in any denomination. Please contact our Scrip coordinator (on the order form) for more information on how to do this.
