SCRIP is just like cash for a specific establishment. 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, and with every purchase, you earn revenue for Lincoln Lutheran.
How SCRIP Generates Revenue
The SCRIP Center acts on behalf of churches, schools, and other nonprofit 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. Lincoln Lutheran 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 Lincoln Lutheran's revenue.
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.
SCRIP makes a great gift. All of the SCRIP we sell comes in prepaid cards and gift certificates just like you would purchase from each store. Order all of your Christmas gift cards through Lincoln Lutheran or the RaiseRight site (link above) and save yourself the time of going to each store individually.
The Lincoln Lutheran office has many gift cards available for immediate purchase. Russ's, Super Saver, Wal-Mart, Menard's, Walgreen's and Kohl's are a few of the 25 retailers and restaurants that are always on hand. Over 100 other retailers are available via special orders that arrive in five to ten days, depending on the day of the week ordered.
Understanding the Order Form
Every retailer available is listed on the order form, along with the percentage they discount the SCRIP when we buy it and the denominations available. Denominations are only available in those amounts listed. Just mark the quantity and total amount of the SCRIP you are purchasing for each retailer.
How Can I Buy SCRIP?
Order forms are available in the SCRIP box outside the school office, in one of the church boxes, and right here. Place order & payment in the box at Lincoln Lutheran by 4:45 on Monday or in one of the church boxes by the start of the last Sunday morning service. On the form, you can indicate where you would like to pick up your order. Choices include:
Pickup at the Lincoln Lutheran office
Sent home with your Trinity student
Pickup at Faith or sent home with your Faith student
SCRIP Gift Certificates
Having trouble deciding which scrip to buy for someone on your list? SCRIP Gift Certificates are now available in any denomination. Let that special someone pick out SCRIP for their favorite places, so it's the perfect gift every time.
SCRIP for Tuition
You may also designate on your SCRIP order form a student whose tuition will be offset by the money Lincoln Lutheran receives on the sale of the SCRIP. This is a great way to help a student attend Lincoln Lutheran that costs you absolutely nothing. Here are some examples of how to use SCRIP to lower tuition costs.
