The mission of the Booster Club is twofold: to support the growth and well-being of the International Gymnastics of Minnesota through volunteer support and to assist competitive gymnasts’ families in defraying the costs of participation in the competitive program.
We are excited to announce the launch of our new SCRIPS fundraising program! For those of you not yet familiar with SCRIPS, the program lets families earn money for their gymnast and the booster club just by making their regular household purchases. Instead of paying with cash or credit, they use prepaid gift cards from America’s favorite and most trusted retailers -- like local restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, department stores, and even hotels. With each gift card purchase, a percentage of the face value of the card goes directly to the booster club to offset our gymnasts' competition fees. What's the catch? Families simply have to plan a bit ahead by ordering their gift cards at the beginning of the week. By the end of the week, your gift cards will have arrived.
For instance, I just placed an order for two gift cards to use as wedding gifts at the end of the month -- 8% of that cost goes back to the booster club. I also know that I'll be buying school uniform clothing from Land's End, so I will purchase gift cards to use at their store and 16% of that purchase price goes back to the booster club! My teenage sons, nieces and nephews are regular I-tunes buyers, so I can order I-tunes gift cards, and send 9% back to the club. I'm earning money toward my daughter's upcoming competition expenses just by purchasing things I already need to buy.
Are you a regular Starbucks customer? Order a gift card, and 7% goes back to the club. Eat out a lot? Applebees, Outback Steakhouse, Panera, Papa John's, Quiznos are all part of the SCRIPS program, along with dozens of other local restaurants. Do you have sports equipment to buy? Dick's, Sport's Authority, Gander Mountain and Foot Locker are on the list. Like to shop? Everything from J.Crew to J.Jill, from Macy's to Marshalls, from Aeropostale to American Eagle is part of the SCRIPS program, along with dozens more.
