How Scrip Works
Good news: It’s really simple!
- Buy retail gift cards through our PTC Scrip program at face value.
- You can choose from nearly 400 national retail stores where they already shop. Click here for a full list.
- We submit the gift cards order at 1-13% less than face value (varies by retailer).
- The difference between face value and what the PTC pays = our PTC’s fundraising profits!
Here’s an Example: Mrs. Smith needs some gardening supplies, so she buys a $100 The Home Depot® gift card for $100 through our PTC scrip fundraiser. Cha-ching! She just earned $4 for Lily Lake because The Home Depot gift cards are available from Great Lakes Scrip Center at 4% less than face value. When Mrs. Smith checks out at The Home Depot, she pays with her The Home Depot gift card instead of using a credit or debit card! She will do the same thing when she needs cleaning supplies at Target®, and earn $2.50 just by using a $100 Target GiftCard to pay for her purchases.
