Support Hillcrest Through Your Everyday Shopping

Some great programs that make a significant contribution to Hillcrest Academy are highlighted below. Your individual participation may seem small, but it is amazing how quickly 10 cents, 1%, and .5% add-up to major dollars for Hillcrest. For example, the target REDcard program has donated nearly $24,000 to date. 

Shop with Scrip:

Scrip is a fundraising option Hillcrest is employing to support families paying tuition. Scrip is basically gift certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including JCPenney, The Gap, Shell, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster and many, many others. 

Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue. And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins: 

  •  The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business… 
  •  You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling… 
  •  Our school gets to support your family's commitment to Hillcrest through this fundraising option that pays towards your student's individual tuition account...

The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for Hillcrest without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in thescrip program! And SCRIP can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out. 

The funds raised through the SCRIP program go back into supporting families with tuition. Revenue created with SCRIP supports scholarships for your family, along with families seeking to attend Hillcrest.
