We're pleased to share some exciting news about a new convenience program our organization is coordinating for you.  It's called "scrip", and it's the program that works while you shop.  Our Scrip program runs year round and orders are placed monthly (more frequently during busy seasons).


Scrip is simply a word that means "substitute money" - in other words, scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers.  These are the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. You're probably asking yourself how these stores help us support the Billerica Scholarship Foundation.  It's simple - scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to the Billerica Scholarship Foundation at a discount.  Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value and The Foundation keeps the difference as scholarships for the students of Billerica.  Scrip is exciting because everybody wins and it's so easy! Your lives are busy enough. Let us help you now and your favorite students in the future! 


Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including:

  • Kohls
  • The Gap
  • American Eagle
  • Wal-Mart
  • Exxon/Mobil
  • CVS, Borders
  • 99's
  • Chili's
  • Legal Seafood
  • Home Depot
  • Lowes
  • and many, many others, all places you shop and would buy gift cards on a regular basis, especially around the holidays. 

Consider great stocking stuffers like: 

  • Dunkin Donuts
  • Starbucks
  • KFC
  • Subway and
  • Boston Market

  or the teacher's gifts like:

  • Barnes and Noble
  • Staples
  • Office Max

How about shower registries to: 

  • Crate and Barrel
  • Babies R Us
  • LL Bean
  • Cabela's
  • Bass Pro shops for the outdoor enthusiast in your life.    

The options are endless!  

The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You will be helping to offset the high cost of college for some very deserving students by supporting the Billerica Scholarship Foundation without spending a single additional penny.  Just buy your gift cards through us and your regular shopping dollars will work wonders.  Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.  The holiday season is hectic enough.  Let us handle your gift card errands for you! 

You can shop two convenient ways.  Either way is easy, convenient, saves you time, supports a great cause, AND costs you nothing.  Not too many decisions in life are that easy.
