Shop With Scrip — Gift Cards


Instructions TO Register

Orders due the 2nd Tuesday of every month / Cards return the following week

This school fundraiser is an easy, convenient way for you to support your children’s school—and it costs you nothing extra! As you pay for your usual purchases—groceries, gas, or other items—you will be helping to support Chiaravalle. You get the full face value of any cards you purchase. Chiaravalle gets a percentage back from the vendors. The percentage varies and not all companies offer cards in all denominations.

Please consider placing a standing order for grocery and/or gas cards in the amounts you know you will use each month. Gift card orders are also accepted monthly.

Please take a look at these gift card options:

  • Using grocery cards for all your food shopping will add up to a significant donation to Chiaravalle.
  • Zipping back & forth to soccer practice? Use a gas card.
  • Need a wedding gift? Consider buying it with a Williams Sonoma gift card.
  • Doing your back-to-school clothes shopping? We have department store cards.
  • Planning a large furniture, appliance, electronic purchase? Picking up a vase, picture frame, or other home décor item? Check out “For the Home” card options.
  • Pick up a few $10 cards to treat the kids to ice cream, Jamba Juice, or a trip to the movie theatre.
  • Make reading a priority. See our options for bookstore cards. Purchase books, calendars, cards.

Family, friends, and neighbors can participate in this fundraiser. Please spread the word. The more people who participate, the more Chiaravalle can take advantage of the bonuses these vendors offer. Thanks for your support!

Gift cards are typically ready for pick up 1 week after the orders are due.

Spirit Wear

Chiaravalle has an awesome spirit gear program with Threadless. Threadless, the popular online community of artists who reproduce their work on clothing and other products, was founded by Chiaravalle parent Jake Nickell.

The new swag from Threadless looks mighty fine -- so soft with a variety styles and colors.
