Scrip is simply a term that means â€śsubstitute money.â€ť Scrip fundraising is a no-selling program that allows families to raise money for their school by using gift cards, or scrip, to pay for everyday purchases.
Families order gift cards directly from their school and pay face value, the school then orders the gift cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center for less than face value. The school keeps the difference, or rebate, and thatâ€™s where the fundraising comes from. Itâ€™s really that simple!
When families use scrip gift cards instead of cash, checks or credit cards at their favorite retailers, they are fundraising while they shop. Great Lakes Scrip Center offers a huge variety of retailers, including grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations and so much more, so itâ€™s easy to make scrip a part of any shopping routine. Just by regularly using scrip for weekly purchases, a single family can easily generate $500 or more annually.

Each family is required to purchase scrip such that the total rebates to the school are minimally $300.00 for each school year.
