Scrip is Fundraising While You Shop®. This amazingly successful fundraising program works for our church and school! Scrip turns everyday shopping into an enjoyable way to donate to St. Mary’s Church of Paris. In this way, families use retail gift cards to pay for everyday purchases (like gas and groceries) instead of the usual credit/debit card or other money. Scrip works well for our fundraising goals or year-round programs. Great Lakes Scrip Center® has helped thousands of organizations earn more than 500 million dollars over the last 20 years.
Pay for what you need and earn money for a good cause at the same time?
Retailers who participate in the Scrip program want to help organizations earn money through rebates. The cards work just like credit, debit, or gift cards and they are a dollar-to-dollar redemption. Twenty five dollars in cash buys a twenty five dollar gift card. When Scrip cards are purchased, retailers will send the church a rebate for the purchase of the gift card. The amount of the rebate varies by retailer. There are more than 700 different types of gift cards available!
The potential success of the Scrip program is endless. With a little preplanning, you have the ability to make a HUGE difference!
