Scrip is a term that means “substitute money.” When you purchase Scrip, you’re purchasing gift certificates and prepaid gift 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 and your family's account!
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 Scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. ALCS buys 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 1 ½ % to 25% percent is revenue that you can use for your family's school expenses such as tuition, fees, sports fees, lunch, etc. You will be able to draw on your account profits four (4) times during the school year.
Scrip is "shopping cart fundraising”
Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. Every time you make a purchase, you can produce revenue by using Scrip! With a little planning, your Scrip account can grow exponentially with the earnings from your regular household purchases like groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, gasoline, and more . . . it can all be purchased with Scrip!!
