As promised we have looked for opportunities for you to support this non-profit program, and to contribute toward our needs based scholarship program for students who are struggling with learning disabilities.
After researching a number of programs we have found what we believe will be a program that will benefit to all involved.
After much review we have chosen a program called “scrip” which simply means “substitute money”. This program works while you shop and is in the form of gift certificates from national and local retailers. These gift certificates are the same gift certificates / or gift cards that you buy  at the store.  Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including JCPenney, The Gap, Shell, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster 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 ELI keeps the difference for use in our needs based Scholarship program.  And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins:

  • The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business…
  • You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling
  • Our program gets a regular source of scholarship funding.

The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You can help support a struggling student in need 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.
Thank you for your support, we look forward to giving you the opportunity to help a student in need.
