How Scrip Generates Revenue for CommUnity & Our School!
The Great Lakes Scrip Center acts on behalf of CommUnity 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. CommUnity buys the Scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center and local grocery stores at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to our families for full face value, and used at full face value. The discount − from 2% to 15% or more − is CommUnity’s revenue!
Scrip is "Shopping Cart Fundraising"
Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. By participating in the program, you produce revenue by making regular household purchases you would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, restaurants even gasoline can be purchased with Scrip. To see the many vendors participating in the Scrip Program, please click here.
