Fundraising

We ask all band families to participate in music department fundraising to the best of their abilities. Thank you.


NEW FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY!

Spartan Music Boosters has joined Great Lakes Scrip to offer a “no-selling” fundraising program that enables families to raise money for the Music Boosters and your student account.
What is Scrip?
Scrip is just another way to pay for your everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards. You purchase gift cards at full face value through shopwithscrip.com or myscripwallet.com, and Great Lakes Scrip Center obtains those cards at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate for Spartan Music Boosters. It’s really that simple! Great Lakes Scrip Center offers hundreds of the country’s biggest retailers, including grocery, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Just by using Scrip to pay for your normal weekly purchases, you can easily raise $500 or more per year. It’s time to put your shopping dollars to work!
How does Scrip help me?
Spartan Music Boosters keeps a 1% rebate on all purchases and then shares the rest with you. For example, if you buy a $100 card that has a 4% rebate, you get a $100 certificate to spend at full value, and Spartan Music Boosters gets $4 from GL Scrip. Spartan Music Boosters keeps $1 and $3 goes to your student account. Student account balances may be applied to fall band fees, parent t-shirts, student trip costs, solo/ensemble competition fees, honor band auditions & expenses, and approved educational musical activities.
When can I start? 
You can join the program NOW at  https://www.shopwithscrip.com/. Use this enrollment code: E7C4529863938
Set up a PrestoPay account to link your Scrip account to your bank account. There is a flat $0.15 transaction fee for every Scrip order.  We will not accept cash or check payments. GLScrip does not accept credit cards because credit card transaction fees decrease the rebate, which would eliminate many cards from the program.
Order ScripNow electronic gift cards that you can view and print from your account or show on your phone to scan at checkout. We are not offering physical gift cards or re-loadable cards at this time; be sure to only select from ScripNow cards (over 400 stores offered).
Start your back-to-school shopping! There are great rebates at Macy’s (10%), Old Navy (14%), Under Armour (11%), American Eagle (10%), Sierra Trading Post (7%), Zappos (8%), and many more stores. You can even pay your Kohl’s charge card balance at the store with Kohl’s Scrip (4%). You can eat out, get your home projects done, take care of your car, feed your pets, put apps on your phone, play video games and go to the movies – all with scrip! Browse the possibilities here:
