SCRIP: Earn money for Spectrum and money for you!



What is Scrip? Scrip is a program of purchasing gift cards online to places you already shop--paying face value and receiving  face value. There is NO COST to those who buy and use the gift cards!

So, how is the money earned? Spectrum purchases the cards at a discount and keeps the margin--1.5% to 15%, with an average of about 5%,which adds up quickly when people change their paying habits (not buying habits)--and that's the challenge--to get in the habit of buying cards ahead of time AND using these to pay at the stores we already shop:   Target, Walmart, Holiday, SuperAmerica, Home Depot, Menards, Marcus Theatre, Applebee's, Taco Bell, Chipotle, Panera, Kohl's, JCP, Dick's, GNC, etc., etc.,etc. There are hundreds of places!

If a family of 4 uses Scrip to pay for approximately $1,000 a month on groceries, gas, clothing, dining out, entertainment, household goods, etc. it would equate to $50 in Scrip earnings PER MONTH, or $600 a year!! If 100 Spectrum families did this each month, that’s $60,000 a year - $30,000 for the school and $30,000 in our families accounts!!

Just think what a hundred or more families could do.Incredible.


Where do these Funds Go?

50% of those Scrip earnings go to YOUR FAMILY ACCOUNT! That’s right—half of the money goes to you! It can be used for things such as:

  1. Athletic fees
  2. Theatre fees
  3. Educational trips that Spectrum sponsors
  4. Spectrum summer camps
  5. Donate the funds back to Spectrum
  6. And more, like the choir trip, prom, and the Senior All-Night Party!

The SPECTRUM half of the funds will go to one of two areas: 

  1. Athletic Operating budget: Athletic Families will have their other half of earnings allocated to the operating budget for the Athletic Department
  2. Service Learning: Non-Athletic Families will have the choice to allocate to athletics as well, or to the Service Learning budget
