"Scrip" is a word that means 'substitute money'

When you purchase scrip, you're purchasing negotiable gift certificates that are used just like cash. The scrip is issued by many of the national and local stores where 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, they earn revenue for your organization.
 
How scrip generates revenue for your non-profit organization
The Great Lakes Scrip Center 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. Your organization buys the scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to you for full face value. The bulk of the discount - from two to fifteen percent or more - is retained by your organization as revenue.
 
Retailers like scrip, too
Families who purchase scrip certificates actively support the retailers who participate in this program. The reason is simple because they know that buying from a scrip participating retailer provides a steady source of revenue for their church, school, or non-profit organization. To view the detail list, you may do so at http://www.shopwithscrip.com/  You cannot place orders there, but you can see what's available. The funds made from any scrip card sales go to the selling student's account. The percentage earned is next to the card name.
 
If you see a store that is not listed on our order form but is on the "shopwithscrip" listing, remember the Boosters can order the cards.  Just contact Chris Braden (see our "contacts" page) or have your student put a note in the Band Boosters' message box in the band room.  (And please remember to write your student's name on the order form when you send it in!)

Dick's Sporting Goods Discount Change

Please advise your member families that the Dick's Sporting Goods discount will change to 5% effective Saturday, February 17, 2007.  Dick's Sporting Goods gift cards are available in $25 denominations.

Dick's Sporting Goods has a reputation as a highly competitive Company that conducts business with uncompromising honesty and integrity.  Dick's Sporting Goods managers are committed to supporting scrip programs nationwide, but they were compelled to lower their scrip discount by a nominal amount in order to maintain their leadership position in an ultra-competitive marketplace. 

Please advise your member families of this change as soon as possible.
