GIFT CARDS / SCRIP
GBEF, MHHS Music Department Gift Card / Scrip Program
Scrip is a way that several of our families are using to totally fulfill or reduce the Annual Instrumental Music Recommended Contribution. Gift Cards can be purchased throughout the year and by starting now you can significantly reduce the amount of this recommended contribution needed for your student.
HOW DOES SCRIP WORK?
In simple terms, Scrip is purchasing gift cards that automatically donate a percentage towards our MHHS music program. You use the cards like you would any gift card. You can pay for your own purchase or give them as gifts. You can order either physical gift cards, or online gift codes that will display within minutes of placing your order online (requires enrollment in PrestoPay* service).
To help you understand here is an example of the percentages given for each type of scrip and how much will be going toward your student’s recommended donation. If I buy $100 of scrip that gives back 20% that is $20 toward my student’s recommended donation, for 10% it gives back $10, 5% gives back $5 and for 1.5% it is $1.50. That is why it is best to buy the higher percentage items!

If you choose to purchase Gift Cards to offset the recommended contribution please be aware that if your student drops or does not enroll, that the return on Scrip can not be refunded to you. It can be transferred to another student who is enrolled at MHHS in any of the music programs, or it can go into the general fund.
If you are interested in this program please contact our Music Booster Club Scrip Coordinator, Tracy Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org . She will get you all the necessary information to begin reducing your student’s recommended contribution.
