Friends of Winskill is EXCITED to announce that we have added more opportunities for you to help support your child’s school! We have expanded our SCRIP program, a fundraising program that works while you SHOP! We are now enrolled in the Great Lakes Scrip Program, which allows us to earn money for our school by purchasing SCRIP from a large selection of retailers.


What is SCRIP?

Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” or “gift card”. They are the same gift cards that you buy at the store. Many popular stores participate in our SCRIP program including, Gap, Walmart, Kwik Trip, Pizza Hut, Kmart, and many others! Local retailers are involved, too, such as Piggly Wiggly, A&W, Happy Joes, to name a few.


How does it work?

It’s simple! SCRIP retailers agree to sell gift cards to Friends of Winskill at a discount. Families buy the gift cards for full face value and Friends of Winskill keeps the difference as profit!


What are the advantages of using SCRIP?

The profits to Friends of Winskill are brought right back to our children. We use this money to buy supplies, books, and new technology for the classrooms; and provide fun activities for our children and their families, such as movie nights, the Sock Hop, and the end of the year carnival.  SCRIP can help you start or stay on track with your budget! Buy SCRIP gift cards to cover your monthly expenses and you’ll know right away when you’ve reached your maximum spending for the month.  SCRIP gift cards make great Christmas and Birthday presents!


How do I get started?

It’s as easy as sending the SCRIP order form to the office with a check written to “Friends of Winskill.” You can get this form from the school office or by printing it from our website Bring the form to the Winskill office by the 15th of each month and we will send the gift cards home with your child by the 20th.
