Scrip Fundraising through Great Lakes Scrip Program
See Information Regarding Holiday Bonus Below
Do you want to earn cash while making regular household or gift purchases? You can by joining the Cutters Great Lakes Scrip Program. Scrip is the painless way to raise funds. Doesn’t require volunteers. You don’t break or exceed the family’s budget. You spend as you normally would, but use Scrip instead of cash or credit cards. Earn discounts on your purchases from GL Scrip retailers by establishing a scrip account. Take these three easy steps!
- Go to Great Lakes Scrip website, glscrip.com and open a family account.
- Monitor your checking account for two small deposits from GL Scrip. Verify the deposits and wait for your approval code.
- Submit your approval code to the Scrip Program Coordinator and your account will be activated. You are ready to go!!
The Operational Aspects of the Scrip Program are defined in the flowcharts below:
The Purchase Discount is deposited into the Families’ Cutters Account. Cutters members purchase the retailer gift cards at face value through the Great Lakes Scrip website or through the Cutters Scrip Coordinator. The amount of the purchase discount is then deposited in the Cutters Scrip account. The Cutters Scrip Coordinator then deposits the member’s share into their personal Cutters account. Every purchase is discounted. The value of discount will vary depending upon the retailer and the particular discounts that they may be offering at a given time. Typically, the range is from a low of 2% to as much as 15%. The retailer’s discounts are always displayed at the Great Lakes Scrip website, www.glscrip.com. Please see the comparison in the table for retailer’ discounts of 2% and 5%.
|Your Earnings Share for 1 Year – 70%||$36.40||$91.00||$72.80||$182.00|
