Gift Card Fundraiser

CSS PTO is again offering families the opportunity to earn money for our school by purchasing gift cards through the Great Lakes Scrip Center (GLSC). These gift cards are the same ones you purchase in stores, with the added benefit that our school earns money for each gift card sold.

Here’s how it works:

You pay face value for a gift card. Due to the PTO’s nonprofit status, the GLSC can then sell the gift card to the PTO at a discounted rate (discount varies by retailer). The difference between the value of the card and the discounted rate is money earned for our school to use to support various programs throughout the year!

You Purchase You Receive CSS Receives
$25 Bertucci’s gift card $25 Bertucci’s gift card $2.50 (10% of gift card value)
$100 L.L. Bean gift card $100 L.L. Bean gift card $16 (16% of gift card value)

Who doesn’t love gift cards? Think of all of the people for whom you normally buy holiday gift cards and consider purchasing them through Scrip. In addition to family and friends, they make great gifts for teachers, coaches, bus drivers, work colleagues, mail carriers, etc. You’ll have crossed off some holiday shopping while earning money for our school!

Gift cards aren’t just for gifts

Scrip gift cards can be used for everyday purchases, like groceries, coffee, clothes, and so on. Gift cards are available for most popular grocery stores, restaurants, department stores, etc. Plan ahead and stock up on gift cards for all of the places you know you shop at frequently!
