It’s fundraising while you shop, and you don’t need to sell anything ever again. Scrip fundraising gift cards are the same gift cards you would normally purchase from a retailer in your local retail stores, and they work the same way. And with over 500 of the country’s biggest brands, Great Lakes Scrip Center has something to appeal to every family. You’ll find cards you can use at grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, movie theaters, home improvement stores, and almost any business that accepts gift cards. Virtually anywhere you shop will accept some form of Scrip.
Using Scrip couldn’t be easier. Families purchase gift cards for places where they plan to shop, and use those cards instead of cash or credit. Great Lakes Scrip Center sells the gift cards to our school at a discount. Families redeem the cards for full face value. Our school keeps the difference as a rebate, earning a percentage of every dollar spent using the scrip gift cards. Instead of making a fundraising company rich, we keep that money within our school. As an added benefit, many scrip users find that they become smarter shoppers by using the gift cards and planning ahead for every purchase.
eScrip is proven to be a fantastic resource for fundraising where participating business partners contribute a percentage of your grocery loyalty cards, credit card, and debit/ATM card purchases to our school. Visit the eScrip family of merchants for a complete list of participants in the program. Participating merchants will make contributions to our school, based on purchases made by you, just by using the cards you have registered. Your purchases are tracked and available to you online, allowing you to see just how much you are earning on your child's behalf!
