Scrip is a term that means "substitute money"
When you purchase Scrip, you’re purchasing gift certificates that are used just like cash. Scrip is issued by the national and local retailers where many of you already shop. These merchants want to support non-profit organizations, and in return ask you to support them by shopping with Scrip at their stores. You can use Scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with EVERY purchase, you earn revenue for St. Joseph School.

How Scrip generates revenue for St. Joseph School

The Great Lakes Scrip Center acts on behalf of non-profit organizations to purchase large amounts of Scrip from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because Scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. The bulk of the discount - from two to fifteen percent or more - is then donated to St. Joseph School. On average, for every dollar spent St. Joseph School earns 7%.

Scrip is "shopping cart fundraising”
The reason for the effectiveness of Scrip is simple: you generate revenue through purchases you would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts even gasoline can be purchased with Scrip. You can raise money for St. Joseph School just by buying Scrip for places you already shop-- without spending an additional penny.
