Our SCRIP program is an easy, no cost way for families to support Santa Fe Waldorf School. We have partnerships with many of our local stores who give back 5-10% of each dollar spent directly to Santa Fe Waldorf School. We have added a select few retailers (listed below) this year, all of which have a 7-16% rebate.
For example, you can purchase a $100 La Montañita Coop Gift Card and La Montañita donates $10.00 to SFWS. The key to this program's success is our monthly standing order process which allows up to achieve high-volume sales. Our goal this year is to earn a net total of $2,000.
The four grocery stores participating in the 2015-2016 school year SCRIP are:
Percentage going to SFWS:
La Montañita Coop - 10%
Sprouts - 5%
Natural Grocers - 5%
Whole Foods - 3%
Additionally, we are offering five retail outlets:
Percentage to SFWS:
Lands' End - 16%
L.L. Bean - 16%
REI - 8%
Bed Bath and Beyond - 7%
Bass Pro Shops - 9%
To order your SCRIP, download the SCRIP Monthly Standing Order Form and return it with your first check to the Development Office. You can postdate checks for each month of the school year, September-June. We will not be accepting credit cards for SCRIP as the 3% credit card fees charged to the school erode the donations we receive.
Another way to mindfully support Santa Fe Waldorf School is to enroll in retailer’s rewards programs and indicate Santa Fe Waldorf School as the recipient of your shopping rewards. Several retailers in the Santa Fe area promote their programs and provide an opportunity to have the program’s rewards benefit a non-profit organization.
Next time you are asked if you want to enroll, ask the retailer if there is a benefit to your favorite non-profit. If you decide to enroll, it might take a few extra minutes to link the process to SFWS, but those smaller benefits do add up.
Here are some of the retailers who have rewards programs for which you can register to have SFWS be the beneficiary:
