Scrip Program

We’re pleased to share some exciting news about a new fundraising program for Mt. Zion Lutheran.  It’s called RaiseRight and it’s the fundraising program that works while you shop.

Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers.  They’re the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including JCPenney, The Gap, Shell, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster and many, many others.  There are about 300 retailers that participate!    

You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money.  It’s simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount.  Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our church keeps the difference as revenue.  And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins:

The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money without spending additional money.  Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program.  Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and dining out.
