What Is SCRIP?
By participating in this program, you can gain dollars for tuition, and help our Immanuel Lutheran School’s General Scholarship Program! All you need to do is purchase gift cards for those retailers where you already shop. And, best of all, it doesn’t cost you an extra dime!

How does my family and the school benefit from me using Scrip?
Immanuel Lutheran School benefits by receiving 2%-33% profit from the merchant on every dollar you purchase.
The school purchases Scrip 'gift certificates' from the merchant at a discount. You then repurchase it from the school for full face value and the school receives the profit. Printable List of On-hand Script Certificates
Two percent (2%) is credited back to your family as a tuition credit. You may use this towards your family's school tuition OR you may donate it to the Tuition Scholarship Fund.
In addition, any person, not directly associated with the school may buy Scrip and have it designated to a specific family's account or the general school fund.
Scrip purchases are tracked by the Scrip Committee.
How do I purchase Scrip?
Scrip is sold at the school and church offices, as well as after the Saturday evening Contemporary Service at the Family Life Center
Scrip is available on a cash/check only basis.
What Stores honor Scrip & how is Scrip accepted?
Immanuel School & Church offices have a list of local and national stores who participate in the Scrip program. Also available is a printable list of on-hand certificates to help you plan your SCRIP purchases.
Most grocery stores, restaurants and many retail outlets offer Scrip. See the Great Lakes SCRIP Center website for a list of all participating vendors.
Scrip is accepted the same as cash and is usually handled similar to a gift certificate. Some stores will give you full change and others will reissue a credit.
Scrip is sold in a variety of dollar amounts to suit every family's needs.
How is the school using profits earned from Scrip use?
After deducting a family's tuition credit, profits are put into the School Scrip Fund.
During the 2005-2006 school year Anti-virus software was purchased for the school computers and a little over $12,500 was used to purchase new reading curriculum with scrip profits.
