Gift Cards


Scrip fundraising allows families to easily earn rebates with everyday spending. 

Click here to go to our Scrip Page to learn more.   

One half of the rebate is deposited into the general EEU (Esperanza Entertainment Unit) account and one half goes directly into your son or daughter’s individual band/color guard account. 

The money earned can be used to pay for performance donations, color guard fees, jazz trips like Reno, banquet, logo wear, etc.

Scrip is a gift card for retail outlets, grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, and fast food establishments.  You can order the hard plastic cards or use Scrip now which is an email version of the scrip.  You will be surprised at how many different choices there are.   

Simply use scrip gift cards for everyday purchases or to give as gifts and see the money in your student’s band account grow.
