​Major Retailers Want To Give Our School Money!

Dear Sea Breeze Families:

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.

Scrip is simply a word that means, “substitute money” – in other words scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Starbucks, The Gap,, Chipotle, Safeway, Lucky, Target 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. Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue. And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins: • The retailer gets cash up front and repeats business…

• You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling…

• Our school gets a regular source of revenue.

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! And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out. There are two ways to purchase scrip. You will receive a paper order form in your child’s cubby. You will fill it out for the gift cards you would like to purchase, and turn in the form with a check made out to Sea Breeze School. The DUE BY DATE will be printed on the paper order form.

The second option is an online payment system called Presto Pay! There is a $.15 fee per order, but your order will process much faster. You would simply go to


The scrip program promises to be a simple and effective fundraising program. Thank you in advance for your support!!
