This is the fundraising program that works while you shop.
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 JC Penney, The Gap, Pizza Hut, Kohls, local restaurants, Lowes, Home Depot, etc. Please see the list of participating retailers on the order form.
Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to PMA at a discount. PMA families and friends purchase the cards for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and PMA applies the % each retailer gives us towards your buyout fundraising fee or if your family is not doing the buyout option, we will designate the money for our new athletic fields. We predict that if 50% of our families purchased the gift cards through PMA, we would earn approximately $10,000 per year.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for PMA without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including clothing, entertainment, and even dining out. The PMA scrip program promises to be a simple and effective fundraising program.
There are 2 ways to place your orders. You may order through PMA:
1. Return completed order form with a check made out to PMA for the total amount of cards you are purchasing. All order forms must be returned to the school office no later than Thursday(s) morning.

Your participation is this program is important to us even if you already paid your $300 fundraising fee. At PMA we will use the scrip program to purchase our maintenance supplies and materials at Home Depot, Staples, and Office Depot, why not? Every little bit helps us provide your child with a great education. This money will truly help us with the many needs that we have at the school.
