Stop selling and start buying! Scrip fundraising is a non-selling program that allows families to raise money for non-profit organizations simply by purchasing and spending gift cards at your favorite stores.
First you buy the cards from the organization at face value. After you buy the card, your coordinator orders the cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at reduced prices. The extra money goes to your organization. It's that easy!

how does it help your tuition?
The profit from the scrip you purchase will be split between the church and school and the school portion will be banked for your tuition the following year. For example, if you spend $940 monthly on purchases with scrip, you could earn about $225 in tuition credit for next school year!
