Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. You can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you 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 scrip from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because the scrip is purchased with cash up front, 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 fund-raising”
Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. Organization members produce revenue by making regular household purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip.
In order to assist parents in paying their tuition and eventually being able to donate back to the school, we have started a Bingo Program that is conducted right in the cafeteria of the school. This program has been up and running since October 7, 2014 and is still going strong. Parents who are interested in earning tuition money and are available can help out with our Bingo Program. If you are interested in learning more about how this night works or to sign up to work, please contact
