Great Lakes Scrip :: Gift Card Program

By purchasing gift cards 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 CrossWinds.

How scrip generates revenue for CrossWinds?

The Great Lakes ScripCenter acts on behalf of churches, schools and other nonprofit organizations to purchase large amounts of scrip (discounted cards) from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because the scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. CrossWinds 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 will go toward our Outreach budget.
