Great Lakes Scrip Program Available at UUFR!
The Great Lakes Scrip Program is a very popular fundraiser among other non-profit organizations, as well as schools.
How it Works:
UUFR Members and Friends buy gift cards through the church at full face value, and use them in place of cash, checks, or credit cards for their everyday shopping. UUFR buys the cards from Great Lakes at a reduced cost. The difference is immediate fundraising for UUFR. You can choose from nearly 300 popular retailers, including department stores, dining, and travel. The church can earn between 1-17% on each gift card purchased depending on the retailer.
There will be a Scrip Fundraising table set up in Founder's Hall during coffee hour, staffed with a knowledgeable member that will be happy to take your order and collect your cash or check. Allow a couple of weeks once your order is placed to receive your cards.
Q. How long will UUFR run the Scrip program?
A. Initially, we thought we would run the program just through December to see if members and friends would take advantage of the Scrip gift card program to do their holiday shopping. They did and because it's bringing in some money to the church, we'll continue the program until further evaluation.
Q. Can I order gift cards online?
A. No, because Scrip does not take credit card payments from individuals. Please complete one of the pre-printed Scrip order forms available during Coffee Hour and submit your cash or check made payable to UUFR. You can also print an order form from the UUFR website, complete it, and drop off or mail with your check.
Q. Can we add more grocery stores to the business listing?
A. So far, the only grocery store in our area that participates in the Scrip program is Wholefoods. We'll let you know if that changes.
Q. How long will it take for my gift cards to come back?
A. We will place gift card orders every two weeks, so orders placed by the 2nd Sunday will be available for pick during Coffee Hour on the 4th Sunday.
