Scrip

Zion Lutheran Scrip Program

Scrip is the perfect fundraiser! This program generates funds for our school without any cost to you. Schools and churches that have dedicated members utilizing the Scrip program can raise large amounts of free money! Using Scrip is amazingly simple, convenient, and so beneficial to Zion Lutheran School of Kearney.

What is Scrip?

Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”.  When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing gift certificates that are used just like cash.  You can use the scrip for everyday expenses such as food, gas, clothing, etc. With every purchase you earn revenue for you and your organization.

How is revenue generated?

The Great Lakes Scrip Center acts on behalf of churches, schools, and other non-profit organizations to purchase large amounts of Scrip from 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.

How does Scrip benefit Zion?

When you enroll in Zion’s Scrip Program, you are able to apply 50% of the credit you earn through Scrip toward tuition and 50% to the Zion Lutheran Building Fund.  You will be allowed to choose to apply credit to your family’s tuition, another family’s tuition, the tuition assistance fund, or 100% to the building fund.  Families have been able to accumulate hundreds of dollars to their family’s account.
