Scrip in a nutshell: participating businesses donate a percentage of sales to our school. In order for it to work, you have to pre-buy via a gift card/certificate through us. It’s a win-win situation. You get the full amount of value in goods, Song Garden gets a percentage of sales.
Here’s how it works: you buy a gift card/certificate through Song Garden to shop at participating businesses e.g. New Seasons, Costco, Safeway, Fred Meyer, REI and more. If you buy $50 worth of Scrip at Fred Meyer’s, you get a gift card to purchase $50 worth of goods. Each business offers a different percentage that they donate, but in this case it would be 4% or $2 which would go directly to Song Garden. The more participation the better for our school, so friends and family are encouraged to participate as well.

The money raised from Scrip directly supports our school community by enabling us to offer tuition assistance, while also helping to cover expenses such as hiring substitute teachers and supporting ongoing professional development for teachers.
