What is SCRIP?
Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When Good Shepherd members purchase scrip, they're purchasing negotiable gift certificates that are used just like cash. The scrip is issued by the national and local retailers where your families 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. GS members can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, gas and other essentials. With every purchase, they earn revenue for Good Shepherd.
How SCRIP generates revenue for Good Shepherd.
The Great Lakes Scrip center acts on behalf of Good Shepherd to purchase large amounts of scrip from grocery stores, department stores, gas stations, and other retailers. Because the scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. Good Shepherd buys the scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a discount then resells the certificates to members for full face value. The bulk of the discount - from two to fifteen percent or more - is retained by Good Shepherd as an additional ministry revenue stream.
Retailers Like Scrip, Too.
Families who use scrip actively support the retailers who participate in this program. The reason is simple…they know that buying from a scrip participating retailer provides a steady source of revenue for our church.
