What is scrip?
- When you hear the word “scrip”, think gift cards. We purchase gift cards at a discount from Great Lakes Scrip. You have the opportunity to purchase and/or order them after all the Masses as gifts or for your own personal use.
How does it work?
- We purchase or can order gift cards from hundreds of retailers at a discount. Various retailers offer rebates ranging from 1.25%-16%. For example, if you were to purchase a $100 Home Depot gift card from us, we would receive $4.00 because Home Depot offers a 4% rebate through the scrip program.
Who benefits from Scrip?
- We all benefit! The proceeds will defray costs for youth who want to attend upcoming NCYC and KCYC conferences, future mission trips, March for Life, and camps.
- The program benefits YOU because your purchases are anonymous to retailers who capture and sell information when you use your credit card. There is no fraud risk in using scrip cards.
- Additionally, scrip can help in budgeting and it’s a convenient way to buy gifts for upcoming holidays, graduations, teacher gifts, and milestones.
How do I purchase Scrip?
- We keep a limited supply of cards on hand and sell them after all the Masses. We highly recommend ordering your scrip ahead of time so you’re assured the cards you need will be ready for you the following week. Currently, we are only able to accept cash or checks as payment and we must receive it at the time you order. We hope to expand the program in the near future so we can accept credit cards as payment.
