Shopwithscrip allows you to stop selling and start earning. As opposed to standard fundraising techniques, scrip fundraising does not involve any sales or donation requests but is based on gift card purchases to use at the stores where you already shop for everyday purchases. For every participating merchant, a percentage of the cost of a gift card purchase is donated to the school. For example, if you spend $100 to purchase a $100 gift card for your favorite clothing store, CCA may receive a 10% rebate without any extra effort or money on your part.

*Tip - Use gift cards with Goodshop to increase your rebates.
