What Is Scrip?

When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing 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.

How scrip is an easy fundraiser for St. Peter the Apostle School

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 discount, anywhere from two to fifteen percent or even more, is what is earned for St. Peter the Apostle Catholic School. On our order form, next to each participating retailer, you will notice a percentage. This percentage is what we earn for that particular retailer. Some are more than 20%!

Scrip is “shopping cart fundraising”

Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. St. Peter the Apostle Catholic School benefits from our families making regular household purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, and even gasoline can be purchased with scrip. This is a very easy and effective way to fundraise for our school.

How do I get started?

Take a few minutes and look over the attached Scrip order form. Think of all the shopping you normally do; grocery, gasoline, food, etc., then simply order the amount from each retailer you want. Bring your completed form and check made payable to SPACS SCRIP to the office, and we will process your order. In a few days your scrip gift cards will be sent home for you to use. It’s that easy! Please Check the Order Form for Due Date.
