SCRIP

SCRIP Program

Great news, Scrip Shoppers!  To help you raise funds for YOUR band student’s account, the percentage of Scrip rebate earned is 90% on purchases made May 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021.  After January 1, 2022 the percentage will return to 25%.

Overview

The Center Grove Trojan Band Boosters offer the following rebate program to help families earn money to pay for student band fees.  Families purchase gift cards (physical cards/e-cards) at face value.  The vendor then returns (or “rebates”) a portion of the face value of the card to the band program.  This is a great way to earn “free” funds for your student on purchases you already make.

The money earned from this rebate program is held in trust by the CGTBB Treasurer. In the Finances section of Charms, the rebates earned for each student are posted approximately 1x/month. The rebates earned can be used to offset band and trip fees as well as other items available for purchase from the band program.

Note: The rebates are not available to make purchases outside the band program (i.e. ISSMA tee shirts, the food at events, etc.)
