National Scrip Center Teams Up with SchoolPop to Help Schools
Partnership Provides Leverage to Raise and Save Funds
National Scrip Center (NSC), the nonprofit company that created the scrip fundraising industry, and Schoolpop, America's number one year-round school support company, have teamed up to add new, practical, and easy funding programs to schools and other nonprofit organizations. Starting in January 2004, the two companies will introduce each other's programs to their respective clients leveraging NSC's leadership in fundraising gift cards and certificates and Schoolpop's hassle-free, recurring funding. The companies will also work together to develop new and innovative programs.
NSC plans to offer Schoolpop's Learn & Earn program which presents substantial discounts on educational media products to schools and families. At the same time, Schoolpop will launch NSC's GivingMore, a program which provides supporters direct access to name-brand gift cards and gift certificates. Each program contributes substantial funding to schools without asking students to sell and deliver products door to door or repeatedly ask parents to purchase unwanted items at a premium price.
The combined programs are expected to help reduce the negative impact of the current budget crisis on school programs. During 2004, NSC and Schoolpop plan to announce additional new complementary hassle-free programs that support schools year-round and enhance the strengths that both companies bring to this new strategic partnership.
