Fundraising Deposit

Earning back your Fundraising Deposit:

It may sound impossible, but earning back your $500 Fund Raising Deposit is very do-able, just by using TWB/Scrip certificates for your monthly spending on groceries, household items and dining out, if you plan ahead.   Many of the places where you shop and eat out right here in our neighborhood participate in the Together We’re Better/Scrip Program.   Below are some monthly expenses that could help you earn back your deposit over a ten month period (average $50 per month).

Groceries: Spend $400 at Dierbergs (5%) or Shop & Save (5%) = $20 Contribution

Eating Out:

Almost all families eat out a few times a month.  Plan ahead and purchase certificates, for example:

·         Spend $20 at Arby’s (8%) = $1.60 Contribution

·         Spend $25 at Panera/Bread Co. (9%) = $2.25 Contribution

·         Spend $50 at O’Charleys (13%) = $6.50 Contribution


Consider household purchases, entertainment and gift giving:

·         Spend $100 at Target, Sam’s Club or Wal-Mart (2%) = $2 Contribution

·         Spend $100 at Lands’ End (also can be used at Sears, Kmart) (16%) = $16.00 Contribution

·         Spend $19 on two AMC Movie “Gold” Tickets (16%) = $3.04 contribution

·         Spend $20 for Domino’s Pizza (8%) = $1.60 contribution



Of course, these are just a few examples of the HUNDREDS of certificates that are available for purchase.  A full list, including the percentage contribution that the school earns from each vendor, is available for download at www.shopwithscrip.com.  The pdf attached below is current as of 7/23/13.

Online purchasing of certificates is also now available and can be a helpful tool for planning ahead.  You can also log in to the shopwithscrip.com website to view reports on the credits your family has earned from certificate purchases. The period for earning back your 2013-14 Fund Raising Deposit begins April 16, 2013 and ends April 15, 2014. With a little effort, you can make this program work for you!  And, you can always invite family and friends to help you out by purchasing certificates on your behalf. 

The Sky’s the Limit! Please keep in mind that our school continues to benefit from your purchases of certificates, even after your personal Fund Raising Deposit requirement has been satisfied.  Make purchasing certificates part of your regular spending routine.
