Scrip comes to Gloria Dei!



Dear Gloria Dei Members:

We’re pleased to share some exciting news about a new program for our organization. It’s called “scrip”, and it’s a program that works while you shop.

Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including JC Penney, The Gap, Shell, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster and many, many others.

You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple – scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our church keeps the difference as revenue. And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins:

The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business… You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling… Our church gets a regular source of revenue.

The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our church without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.

What is Scrip?

Scrip is just another term for gift cards. Scrip fundraising is an easy, no-selling program that allows families to raise money for non-profit organizations (Gloria Dei) by using gift cards, or scrip, to pay for everyday purchases.

Families buy gift cards at face value from gloria Dei, and Gloria Dei purchases them for less than face value through Great Lakes Scrip Center. Gloria Dei keeps the difference, and that’s how money is raised.

Families raise funds while they shop by using gift cards instead of cash, checks or credit cards at their favorite retailers. With a huge variety of brands to choose from, scrip makes an easy addition to any shopping routine. Just by regularly using scrip for their weekly purchases, a single family can generate $500 or more in rebates in one year!

Put your shopping dollars to work. Join our scrip program today!

Order forms are in the library by the white basket.  Sit down and look through the whole list of stores in the folders.  If it is not on our form, you may write it in.  You can order anytime but orders will be sent in the first Monday of each month if we have enough orders.  Scrip makes great gifts!
