The Whole Foods Market School Scrip Program is a method of fund raising for the schools, allowing them to realize a 5% profit on the amount of scrip that is purchased and subsequently sold to parents. These monies are for scholarships, school program supplies, etc. Scrip is offered in $20 increments only and there is no set limit on the number of scrip purchased by the school.
We are excited to announce that The International Montessori School is now a participant in the Whole Foods Market Scrip program! If you shop at Whole Foods, you can help IMS raise money AT NO COST TO YOU and with just a little advanced planning. For every dollar you spend at Whole Foods, IMS will receive back 5%.
Here’s how it works:
- IMS will purchase and resell to you Whole Foods Scrip Certificates. They are available in $20 increments and you use these certificates just like cash to pay for your purchases. If your purchase amounts to less than $20, then the cashier will give you your change in cash. IMS purchases these $20 certificates for $19 so the school makes $1 for each one sold. I know that doesn’t sound like much but it can add up quickly if many families use them. Another local pre-school about our size made almost $800 on these certificates alone last year!
- Email the office email@example.com and let them know your general interest and approximately how many certificates you think you would like to order on a one-time, weekly, or monthly basis. After assessing interest, we will likely purchase a block of certificates and make them available through the Office. You can either pay by check when you pick them up or we will add the cost to your next monthly invoice.
- Keep in mind as well that with the holidays approaching, these make great gifts for your mail carrier/baby sitters/newspaper carrier/teachers/etc.
- Scrip may be redeemed at any Triangle Whole Foods Market location for purchases. Change is given if the purchase is less than the face value of the scrip.
