There's a new way to help offset your 2018-2019 hockey player fees! This program is very new to us, so we are going to start off small and see how it goes.
This is a program developed strictly for non-profit organizations to raise funds. Shop with Scrip allows families to buy gift cards online at face value and they will be credited a rebate from anywhere between 2.5% - 20%. Most rebates are between 4% & 13%. The rebates are ACH credited to NIHA's bank account and then will be applied directly to individual families hockey fees throughout the season. Gift cards can be purchased as instant downloads, physical gift cards, and reloadable gift cards. As we begin using this program, we will only be utilizing the instantly downloadable "ScripNow" gift cards. These are the gift cards you can use immediately just by pulling them up on your phone.
The Williams family is planning a night out. They go to Brio Tuscan Grille for dinner and purchase a $100 instant use gift card from the MyScripWallet mobile site. Then they go to AMC to watch a movie and purchase another $100 instant use gift card. That night, NIHA will get an itemized deposit for $12 (12% rebate) from the Brio gift card and $10 (10% rebate) from the AMC gift card. The Williams family will get a $22 credit toward their annual hockey fees.
The Bowman family just booked a cruise. The remaining balance to be paid to Carnival is around $4000 and they expect to spend at least $1000 on excursions or on the ship. Carnival gives an 8% rebate through Shop with Scrip. If they buy $5000 in Carnival gift cards, their player's fees will be credited $400.
As we start using this fundraiser, we are requiring all families to utilize Presto Pay so we don't need to facilitate money in & out. We will simply accept automatic credits into our account and then credit the player's accounts. This may change in the future, but want to roll this out simply at first.
Ongoing Player Account Balances:
Families can utilize this program year round. If a player's balance is paid in full, the incoming rebate amount will be credited toward the future year's fees. If the player does not return the next year, the balance will be treated as a donation to NIHA after the registration period has ended.

JOINING OUR SCRIP PROGRAM
What is Scrip?
Scrip is fundraising while you shop! You buy gift cards for over 780 retailer brands you already shop at and earn a rebate on every gift card you purchase at face value. That rebate goes right to our organization.
How it Works
We run our scrip program through ShopWithScrip.com, who has worked with over 30,000 nonprofit organizations over the course of 23 years. You’ll need to sign up and create an account to order online.
You’ll need to enter our enrollment code which will link your account to our organization.
ENROLLMENT CODE for NIHA: 93FAF51259764
Once you’ve entered the enrollment code, click Register. You’ll provide answers to two challenge questions.
Now you're almost ready to order online and earn! (Do not place an order until PrestoPay enrollment is complete)
LAST STEP: Enroll in PrestoPay
PrestoPay - PrestoPay is ShopWithScrip’s online payment system that you can use for a convenience fee of $0.15 per order. When you use PrestoPay, your order payment is transferred securely via the electronic debit of your checking or savings account, and your orders will process faster than if you paid by check. You can’t link PrestoPay to a credit card as credit cards charge costly fees that would take a portion of earnings away from our organization.
Enrolling in PrestoPay:
Log in to your ShopWithScrip account and click on PrestoPay under Family Functions
Enter your checking and general information.
Two small deposits will be added to your checking account within two business days of entering your information to verify your account.
Enter these two deposits on ShopWithScrip under PrestoPay, and then select a 4-digit PIN.
Then you’re verified, and you’ll get an approval code that you need to send to your coordinator (Melissa.Nichols@scotts.com)! When sending this, please also include the name(s) of the player and team you are supporting.
Potential Earnings with Scrip
For your first order, you might just purchase scrip for your gas and groceries. Once you get used to it, though, you can earn on every section of your budget, including: dining out, shopping, home improvement, and travel and vacations.
Look at what you could earn:
Physical Gift Cards — These are the same gift cards you get at the store. Use them instead of cash or a credit card! (Not yet available for NIHA, possibly coming by November)
Reload and ReloadNow®— Some physical gift cards are avail- able for either Reload or ReloadNow. Register an eligible gift card you purchased from ShopWithScrip and add funds to it when the balance is running low. Funds will be added overnight for cards that offer Reload, and instantly for ones that offer ReloadNow when you pay with PrestoPayTM. (Not yet available for NIHA)
ScripNow® — ScripNow is an eCard that you can buy and receive instantly. You can print off ScripNow, or redeem it on your mobile device for certain retailers. They are immediately available when you pay with PrestoPay.
MyScripWallet — MyScripWallet is ShopWithScrip’s mobile website that you can use to order ScripNow, Reload, and ReloadNow on-the-go. It’s perfect for adding funds to your gas card or for ordering ScripNow during an unexpected dinner out!
To go mobile, go to www.MyScripWallet.comon your web browser on your phone and log in with your ShopWithScrip account. You have to be signed up for PrestoPay, then you can order ScripNow, Reload, and ReloadNow and redeem eCards right from your phone!
