What Is Scrip?

Scrip is a term that means "substitute money". When you purchase scrip, you're purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid 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 TROOP 90 and $$ toward scout accounts for camp!

How scrip generates revenue for you

The Great Lakes Scrip Center purchases 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. TROOP 90 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 two to fifteen percent or more - is our organization's revenue. As of 8/28/08 85% of the discount is going toward scout accounts to help pay for camp!

Scrip is "shopping cart fundraising"

Scrip is popular fundraiser because families don't have to sell anything. TROOP 90 earns money by families making regular household purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip.
