Scrip Program

What Is Scrip?
Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. Purchasing scrip is the same as purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. Scrip can be used to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials, and the revenue generated from the purchase of scrip goes directly to TMSA.

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 the scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. The school buys the scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to school families and friends for full face value. The discount - from two to fifteen percent or more – is the school’s revenue.

Scrip is "shopping cart fundraising”

Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. School members produce revenue by making regular household purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip.
