GBCIHA IS EXCITED TO OFFER SCRIP TO ALL OF OUR MEMBERS!
Scrip is a great fundraiser and the credits from Scrip will go towards your individual child’s ice bill.
What is Scrip?
Scrip is Fundraising While You Shop®. This amazingly successful fundraising program has worked for thousands of sports teams, athletic booster clubs and other non-profits! Scrip turns everyday shopping into cash for your team or booster club when families use retail gift cards to pay for everyday purchases (like gas and groceries) instead of the usual credit/debit card or other money.
The Basics of a Scrip Program
You buy retail gift cards through your scrip program at face value. You buy the gift cards at 1-13% less than face value (varies by retailer).
You choose from nearly 400 national retail stores where you already shop.
The difference between face value and what you pay = your earnings.
Your fundraising for your ice fees has begun!
Here’s an Example:
Mrs. Smith needs some gardening supplies, so she buys a $100 The Home Depot® gift card for $100 through her son’s hockey association scrip fundraiser. Cha-ching! She just earned $4 toward his ice fees because The Home Depot gift cards are available from Great Lakes Scrip Center at 4% less than face value. When Mrs. Smith checks out at The Home Depot, she pays with her The Home Depot gift card instead of using a credit or debit card! She will do the same thing when she needs cleaning supplies at Target®, and earn $2.50 just by using a $100 Target GiftCard to pay for her purchases.
On top of purchasing the gift cards through Scrip they also offer reload for some places such as Meijer. So once I get my Meijer gift card any time I’m ready to go to the store I don’t have to wait, I can just reload the same card. They also offer Scrip now for some places such as Chili's, where you pay for it and print the gift card right then. Also, no waiting and no additional cost or fees for these options.
We will only be processing orders through Scrip and not by checks. If you would like to participate please create your own account and you must set up presto pay in order to pay for your order. We will be processing orders every 2 weeks. The orders will ship to me within a week of me submitting and I can get them to you. There will be a onetime fee of $7.95 to cover costs that will be taken off your credit. So if at the end of the year your credit is $100, we will subtract the $7.95 and your total credit will be $92.05.
