What is SCRIP?

  • A member-controlled fundraiser that helps raise money for the band and your student (helps pay your annual dues, purchase gloves, shoes, banquet tickets, etc!)
  • You purchase gift cards at face value and HBPA is paid a percentage of the sale.
  • HBPA splits the profits with the students.  The suggested split is 60/40. *Starting in 2017, Marching students get 60% and HBPA gets 40%!!
    • Example 1, if you buy this $50 Applebee’s gift card, 8% of what you spend is donated = $4.00 ! (Marching Hawk $2.40, HBPA account $1.60, which is a tax-deductible donation)
    • Example 2, if you buy a $100 Macy’s gift card, 10% of what you spend is donated = $10! (Marching Hawk $6, HBPA account $4, which is a tax-deductible donation)
    • Buy gift cards for many merchants like Walmart,Sam’s Club, Farm Fresh, Home Depot (spend on things you buy everyday).
    • All “Marching Hawk” credits go toward your student’s account.  Some HBPA parents have used SCRIP to nearly pay their entire annual dues!!!

The Hickory Band Program has extended its fundraising program with SCRIP. Read the Letter to Introduce SCRIP.  For more details on SCRIP, please review the What is SCRIP (pptx) presentation.
