What is Scrip?
Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip, you are purchasing a negotiable gift, certificates and prepaid cards that are used like cash. Scrip cards can be used to purchase products or services from grocery stores, gas stations and over 100 major retailers.
How scrip Helps St. Joan of Arc School
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 2% to 15% percent or more – is our organization’s revenue. We have implemented mandatory participation in the Scrip program for families of children attending St. Joan of Arc school.
Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families do not have to sell anything. Organization members produce revenues.
