What is Scrip?
Scrip is a way to support Immanuel Lutheran Church & School while you do your regular shopping.
Scrip is a nation-wide, year-round fund-raising program for schools and non-profits in which merchants issue gift cards and gift certificates at a discount to the organization. We then sell these cards to you at their face value. You, in turn, use the cards in place of cash, check or credit cards to make purchases at the stores.
For example, Scrip buys $100 worth of Copps card at a 4% profit, so the $100 card cost Scrip $96. The Scrip program sells that card for face value, $100 and earns $4 profit. You then use the card to pay for groceries!
One-half of the profit is used for various projects at our school, such as buying equipment that enhances our children's educational experience. The other half of the profit is yours and can be designated by you to one of the approved funds listed on the front of the Scrip Order Form, such as your Immanuel School tuition.
The Scrip year runs July-June, so profits are accumulated throughout the year and can be credited to your designated fund starting in July of each year.
Where Can You Buy Scrip?
During the week, including summers, Scrip may be purchased in the school office from 8-4:20 (Summer hours 8-3:30). Scrip order forms are available in the office or can be printed off from the "OrderForm" page. The Scrip that is listed on the form is kept in stock at Immanuel so that you can go shopping right away. You can also go to Great Lakes Scrip to see additional vendors we can order from on your behalf.
Online ordering is also available. To find out more about how you can create an account and start making your Scrip purchases online, click on the "Online Ordering" page.
