  Major Retailers Want To Give Our School Money!


Dear Seaside Parents:

We’re pleased to share some exciting news about a new fundraising program for our school. It’s called “scrip”, and it’s the fundraising program that works while you shop.

The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.

You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money? It’s simple. You purchase gift cards through scrip’s participating retailers for full face value. In return, each retailer gives a specific percentage back to Seaside. The list of retailers on the back of your order sheet shows how much each retailer gives back to our school.

Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift cards from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift cards that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Macy’s, The Gap, Amazon, Target, Starbucks, Vons, and many others!

Order forms will be included in your child’s monthly packet. Simply turn in your order form and payment to the office or your teacher by the second Monday of the month. You may pay with cash or check (made out to Seaside PTA). You will be able to pick up your gift cards on the following Monday in front of the office before and after school.
