Help the Juniata Valley Council by using Scrip Cards:
What Is Scrip?
Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. You can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you earn revenue for our organization.
How scrip generates revenue for you
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. Our organization buys the scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center 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 our organization’s revenue.
Scrip is "shopping cart fundraising”
Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. Organization members produce revenue by making regular household purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip.
How do I use the program?
Look through the list of Great Lakes Scrip Center Participationg Retailers (CLICK HERE). Once you have decided which cards are the right ones for you, log onto the site below (www.shopwithscrip.com) and setting up an account to place your order. Orders will ususally be placed each week and received within the following week at the office.
Payment may be done by sending cash or check to the office after placing the order on line. Another option would be for you to set up a PrestoPay™ account and pay through a debit charge on your bank account.
How about a reloadable card about 50 at this time? After ordering the card the first time through the Council you may "Reload" the card by having a PrestoPay™ account and reloading your own cards See details on shopwithscrip.com.
By doing your regular household purchases...But instead of paying with cash or credit, you can use prepaid Scrip cards from America’s favorite and most trusted retailers.
