What is Scrip?

Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing negotiable gift certificate and prepaid cards that are used like cash. You can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you can earn revenue for our organization.

How scrip generates revenue for you

The Great Lakes Scrip Center acts on behalf of churches, schools and other non-profit organizations to purchase large amounts of script from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because the scrip is purchased with cash up front,m the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. Our organization buys the scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to families like yours for full face value. The discount – from two to fifteen percent or more – is our organization’s revenue.

Scrip is “shopping cart fundraising”

Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. Organization members produce revenue by making regular household purchases they would like to make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip.
