Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Kohls, The Gap, Roundy’s, Kwik Trip, Lowe’s, Festival Foods, Olive Garden and many, many others. Check out our list of participating retailers.
You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple — scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Supporters like you buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and CRDF keeps the difference as revenue. Best yet, the rebate you generate through the scrip program can be acknowledged as a tax-deductible donation.
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our programs without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program!
For example, if you ordered $25 in gas cards each week, you would earn over $100/year in rebates to donate to our efforts in Haiti.
And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out. As you include more and more of your regular purchases in your scrip order, it is easy for a single family to earn $600+ each year in rebates for CRDF.
Ordering scrip is quick and easy and many major brands are available to use immediately after you order. For more information, fill in the form below and we’ll be in touch to get you started with scrip!
