What is Scrip?
Scrip is Fundraising While You Shop®. This amazingly successful fundraising program turns everyday shopping into cash for Trinity Lutheran School when families use retail gift cards to pay for everyday purchases (like gas and groceries) instead of the usual credit/debit card or other money. With almost 400 retail locations to choose from, you can turn the money you are going to spend at locations like Meijer, Walmart, Wesco, and even our local Vic's Supermarket into dollars that support TLS.
How Scrip Works
Earn money for your organization using gift cards for everything you buy – groceries, gas, you name it!

The Basics of a Scrip Program
Here’s an Example
Mrs. Smith needs some gardening supplies, so she buys a $100 The Home Depot® gift card for $100 through her son’s school scrip fundraiser. Cha-ching! She just earned $4 for the school because The Home Depot gift cards are available from Great Lakes Scrip Center at 4% less than face value. When Mrs. Smith checks out at The Home Depot, she pays with her gift card instead of using a credit or debit card! She will do the same thing when she needs cleaning supplies at Target®, and earn $2.50 just by using a $100 Target GiftCard to pay for her purchases.
