What is Scrip?

Shop with Scrip is a fundraiser where you can earn funds for both the EMA and your child's EMA account, simply by buying gift cards through the program for places you are already shopping!  Instead of paying for your groceries, gas, or dinner out at a restaurant with cash or your debit or credit card - purchase a gift card to those retailers through our Scrip program and earn while you shop!

With over 600 national retailers, you are sure to find several retailers you frequent.  Earnings range from 1% up to 14% of your purchase price. So if you buy $100 in Giant Food gift cards, Scrip rebates are $4 - 25%, or $1,  will be held by the EMA for general fundraising purposes, and 75%, or $3, will be credited to your child's EMA account. Just by you buying a gift card to purchase your groceries!
