Scrip...A Great Way to Fundraise
What Is Scrip?
Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid gift cards that are used just like cash. You can use scrip to purchase everyday items like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you earn fundraising revenue for the parish and school.
How scrip generates revenue for St John’s
The vendor we use acts on behalf of churches, schools and other non‑profit 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. St John’s buys the scrip from our vendor 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 St John’s fundraising revenue.
Scrip is "shopping cart fundraising”
Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. You would just purchase scrip to use for regular household purchases that you would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip.
