One of our year-long fundraisers for the Marcy PTO is the sale of gift cards through a program called Scrip. The PTO earns a percentage of each gift card purchased through the program on things that you would spend money on anyway. By simply planning ahead on everyday purchases like groceries, gas, restaurants, clothes, entertainment and home repair, the average family can contribute at least $11 a week to our PTO. That modest number adds up quickly – over $500 a year for an average family is not unusual. Some stores offer a rebate of up to 16%!!
How to Order:
- Simply go to www.shopwithscrip.com, create an account and use the enrollment code found on the flyer sent in email, to connect your order to Marcy.
- Shop! Find your favorite retailers, restaurants, and more, and purchase a plastic gift card, an eGift card, or reload an existing card.
- New option: download the RaiseRight app to easily make and manage your Scrip purchases! Learn more here
Types of Scrip Cards: examples here:
- Traditional plastic gift card (see delivery schedule below)
- Reload an existing gift card – you do not have to wait for a new card to be delivered! As soon as you reload an existing gift card the money is ready for you to use.
- eGift Cards – many retailers offer an eGift card option, which is a touchless way to purchase Scrip cards. When you purchase an eGift card you will be provided directions on how to use it online or via an app (such as Amazon or Target). See an example by clicking on the Marcy Scrip-eGift card example

- Online: Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, 2.6% fee per transaction) or link your Bank Account for an electronic funds transfer ($.15 fee per transaction)
