WHAT IS SCRIP??
Forget about traditional fundraisers that involve selling or spending extra money. With scrip fundraising, families can easily earn for their non-profit organization while they shop. Simply use scrip gift cards for everyday purchases and earn a rebate on each one at no additional cost.
ShopwithScrip.com is an ongoing fundrasier for CHSA families. When CHSA members purchase scrip cards, they're purchasing gift cards that are used just like cash. The scrip cards are issued by national and local retailers where many CHSA families already shop. These merchants want to support non-profit organizations, and in return ask you to support them by shopping with scrip at their stores. Buy a $100 HEB scrip card and you receive $100 of groceries while CHSA receives $2 donation. Last year all those $2 added up to over $6,600 donations.
CHSA members use scrip to purchase everyday items like food, clothing, and gas (or purchase hotel cards for nationals). Every purchase earns revenue for CHSA that is divided with the family that purchased it - it's a win for CHSA and a win for the family! Money earned from scrip cards sales can be used to pay your registration fees the following year.
