FAQs about the Greenwood PTCO Teacher & Staff Holiday Gift Card Program.
Learn more about the Greenwood PTCO's "Raise Right" (formerly SCRIP) holiday gift card program and how it benefits our teachers/staff and our school!
What is the Greenwood Holiday Gift "Raise Right" Program?
A lot of Greenwood families want to give gifts to our amazing teachers and staff during the Holiday season. So the Greenwood PTCO provides a great opportunity to get our teachers and staff something they really want while at the same time helping out our school!
How does the "Raise Right" Program Work?
Your family can contribute any dollar amount to any teacher or staff member at Greenwood by clicking on the link below. Simply select the teacher/staff member and enter the dollar amount you'd like to contribute.
Once everyone has contributed, the funds for each teacher/staff member are compiled into a "Raise Right" account for them to use in selecting gift cards for themselves and their families (think anything from Amazon and Starbucks to Home Depot or Gap).
How does this help Greenwood Elementary?
Each participating retailer donates a percentage of each gift card purchase to the Greenwood PTCO. So the teachers/staff get the full value of your contribution and a percentage of that contribution also comes back to the school through each gift card purchase.
Why Should Your Family Participate?
It’s a triple win:
The program is easy for families to give a holiday "thank you" to the teachers and staff that make our school great.
Teachers and staff can choose the gift cards they want.
The PTCO gets funds from each gift card purchase.
Please note that teachers and staff are notified of the participating families, but never the individual amounts gifted.
CONTRIBUTE NOW BY CLICKING ON THE LINK BELOW. All contributions need to be made by 11 pm on Friday, December 8th, so we can compile the amounts in time for the holidays.
**Greenwood PTCO's gift card holiday program is a gift and not a tax deductible donation. Your contributions DO NOT go to the PTCO. They will go toward purchasing gift cards for each teacher/staff member.**
