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 revenue for our organization. Check out paticipating retailers
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. 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 two to fifteen percent or more – is our organization’s revenue that is shared with you.
Scrip is "shopping cart fundraising”
Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. Organization members produce revenue by making regular household purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip.

Orders are due with payment on Tuesdays (if not using Presto Pay, make checks payable to LCL) and should be ready for pick up in the school office on Fridays. Orders will not be placed during the shortened holiday/vacation weeks.
The Scrip program is now carrying an inventory of cards available to purchase in the office. This is a simple way to buy your favorite gas, grocery and restaurant cards without the wait. Can't make it? No worries, send your student to the office with cash or check and they can shop for you.
We will be carrying the following (inventory may increase or change due to demand):
Kohls $25 and $50
Starbucks $10 and $25
TJ Maxx $25
Kwik Trip $25 and $50
Roundys (Pick and Save) $25 and $50
Piggly Wiggly $25 and $50
Sign up and order forms will be available at time of purchase if an item you would like is not in stock.
The rebates vary with each of these businesses (some as high as 25% cash back). The profits are split with LCL. What a great way to help pay for your student's tuition just by shopping for food and gas, while supporting the school (money goes to tuition assistance).
