Scrip is a great fundraiser and the credits from Scrip will go towards your individual child’s ice bill!

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!
