What is SCRIP?
Scrip is Fundraising While You Shop. You purchase gift cards and use them to pay for everyday purchases (like gas and groceries) instead of the usual debit/credit cards or cash. There is no outside selling and no need to purchase anything you don’t need.
How does SCRIP work?
- You purchase gift cards for national retailers at face value using an order form or ShopWithScrip.com
- Christ the Lord pays a discounted amount for the gift cards that you purchase.
- The difference between the amount you pay and the amount that Christ the Lord pays is an instant rebate to Christ the Lord.
- Christ the Lord and you share this rebate 60/40 – 60% to you in the form of a tuition/school fee credit or cash reimbursement and 40% to Christ the Lord to support the CTL Youth Ministries Fund*. You may also designate your portion to go back to Christ the Lord as a charitable contribution.
*The Christ the Lord Youth Ministries Fund will be used at the discretion of the Pastors and other leaders of our congregation to cover non-budgetary costs for any ministry in which our youth of any age participate.
