HOW IT WORKS
Scrip fundraising is a no-selling program that enables families to raise money for our school. Scrip is just another way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards.
Great Lakes Scrip Center offers over 300 of the country’s biggest brands, including grocery, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Just by using scrip to pay for your normal weekly purchases, you can easily raise $500 or more per year.
Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Applebee’s, Cabela’s, Kwik Trip, Pizza Hut, McDonalds, iTunes and many, many others.
You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue. And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins:
- The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business...
- You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling…
- Our school gets a regular source of revenue.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at
the stores that participate in the scrip program! And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.
Our scrip program promises to be a simple and effective fundraising program.
