What Is Scrip?
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 fundraising”
Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. All you have to do is purchase gift cards from Soaring 2 Saving Scrip and use them in place of cash, checks, or credit cards for purchases you were going to make any way! Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip. An organization of 150 families easily spends between one and two million dollars a year on these purchases. If they do the majority of this shopping with Scrip, they can raise as much as $40,000 to $80,000 per year for our organization – without spending an additional penny!
