Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money”; in other words, Scrip cards are gift cards from national and local retailers. They are the same gift cards that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our Scrip program, including Kwik Trip, BP Gas, Subway, Wal-Mart, Target, Sunshine Foods, Fareway Foods, and many, many others (over 600!).

You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple: Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to our organization at a discount. Member families like yours buy the cards for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue. And Scrip is exciting, because everybody wins: The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business. You get a powerful fundraising alternative that involves no selling. Our school gets a regular source of revenue.

The beauty of Scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with Scrip at the stores that participate in the Scrip program! And Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase, including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.

You can purchase Scrip cards from Kim Schultz in the school office during normal school hours on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays, or after church on Sundays. Another option is to pre-order the cards as well. To do this, see below. Feel free to contact Tammy Eickhoff at 507-352-4228 or Kim Schultz at the school office at 507-352-4671 with questions on Scrip.
