What is SCRIP

SCRIP is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid 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 funds for our school.

How scrip generates funds
Our school buys the scrip from Great Lakes SCRIP Center and participating local retailers at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to families like yours for full face value. The discount – from two to fifteen percent or more – is our school’s funds raised. The school receives the funds when the scrip is purchased, not when it is used in the store. Scrip is “shopping cart fundraising” Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. Organization members produce funds by making regular household purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip.

You can designate a portion of your funds specifically to an account at CLS, to find out more read about the SCRIP CAIP Program, and sign up using this form.
