Valley Bible Church's Youth Ministry - Scrip Program


What is Scrip?

Scrip is a term that means "substitute money." When you purchase scrip, you're basically purchasing gift cards that are used just like cash. You can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you earn revenue for the Valley Bible Church (VBC) youth.

How scrip generates revenue for you

The Great Lakes Scrip Center acts on behalf of churches, schools and other non profit organizations to purchase large amounts of scrip from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because the scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. VBC 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 one to eighteen percent or more - is our organization's revenue. This revenue gets credited to the youth account of your choice.

Scrip is "shopping cart fundraising"

Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don't have to sell anything. Organization members produce revenue by making regular household purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip.
