Family Accounts

Family Account Fundraisers

These fundraisers enable you to raise money for your family account. Unless otherwise noted, you earn 80% of the profit towards your family account. What does that mean? If you sell an item at $20 and the profit is $10. Your family account receives $8.00 and $2.00 goes into the general fund. You can still feel good about supporting the band and earning money for your band/trip fees.

Scrip

Scrip Program

What is Scrip?

The Band Boosters sell gift cards through the Great Lakes Scrip Center (GLSC).  Gift cards are available for over 700 retailers including department stores, restaurants, grocery stores, home improvement stores, theaters, electronic stores, gas stations, hotels, airlines and online stores. Cards are purchased at face value with a percentage returned to the Band. Your family account receives 80% while the Band general fund receives the remaining 20%. You are earning commission on the cards purchased.

Scrip Dates

Cards are ordered and distributed each week on Thursday evening. Summer dates may vary. Email reminders will be sent out to the Booster E-mail group E-mail List as to location and time. You can also check out the Fundraising Calendar for each date as well. Drop off your order and payment on (or before) Scrip night and your cards will be available for pick-up the following Thursday.

Getting Started

To start ordering Scrip you need to register at www.shopwithscrip.com.

  • In the Family Sign-Up! Box click on “Create Account”.
  • • Follow the instructions to register. All information must be filled in including your email address and the name of your student. This information is not shared with anyone other than the Scrip Coordinator.
  • The GCHS Band Booster enrollment code is 43E277DD6LL1.
  • Place your order before 4:00 pm on Thursdays.
  • Print out a Family Order Receipt after completing the order to keep for your records.
  • Bring your payment on Thursdays to Scrip drop-off.  When making out your check, make it payable to Grove City High School Band Boosters (or GCHSBB if you prefer).  Please add $1 to help defray the cost of shipping.
  • Your order will NOT be processed until payment is made.  If you cannot make it on Thursday, contact the Scrip Coordinator to make other arrangements.
  • Your order will be ready following Thursday night.

Eighty percent (80%) of your Scrip earnings will go into your family account while the remaining twenty percent (20%) will go into the Band’s general fund. A packing slip will be included with your gift cards showing how much your family earned with the order.

Link Bank Account or Credit Card

Linking your bank account or a credit card is a convenient way for families to pay the Band Boosters for their orders, on-line, at the time they place their order. GLSC accepts the payment on our behalf.

GLSC will debit the designated bank account for the face value of the order plus a small convenience fee of $0.15 on the day the order is placed. If using a credit card there is a fee of 2.6% that will be added to the face value of the order. The Scrip Coordinator will release the order at the same time as the dropped off orders.

While linking your account is a great convenience, families can still elect to pay our organization via check or cash. You will be given the option to select the payment type each time you order, during the check-out process.

Is this safe?
Great Lakes Scrip Center has been successfully and accurately debiting organization’s customer accounts via the banking industry’s Automated Clearing House process for the past 14 years. Today over 90% of their customers elect to utilize this proven payment method.
They have worked very closely with their bank to assure the security of data transmission between the computer systems. All transmissions are via secure data links, and the data is encrypted before sending. All data you enter on our site is also transmitted via secure data links. Furthermore, GLSC has invested in the latest computer network security protocols, as defined by the Payment Card Industry. Your data is safe with them.
