About the Program
The Cards for College program is a fundraising program for the SCC Foundation that works while you shop.
Through the purchase of scrip you can help our students and programs. Scrip is simply a word that means "substitute money" – in other words, scrip is gift cards and certificates from national and local retailers. They're the same gift cards and certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including JC Penney, The Gap, Shell, amazon.com, Jack in the Box and many, many others.
You're probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It's simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. You purchase the certificates for full face value, you redeem them for full face value, and the SCC Foundation keeps the difference as revenue.
The beauty of scrip is that you can put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our students and programs 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 food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.
This is also a great and easy way to shop for gifts. Whether purchasing for family and friends near or far, purchasing gift cards to their favorite merchants couldn't be easier. A gift card is easier to wrap and less expensive to mail! If you don't know what size, what style or what brand to get – a gift card is the perfect answer. A gift card allows the individual to pick out something special them self.
We hope you will look over the list of vendors on the Order Form and consider taking part in the Cards for College program. It is a simple fundraising program that we think you will like.
