Shop with Scrip

Are you looking for a way to support Immanuel School?

Scrip is an easy way to support your church and school while you shop.


How does Scrip work?

Immanuel participates in Scrip - a nation-wide, year-round fund-raising program for schools and non-profits in which merchants issue gift cards and gift certificates at a discount to Immanuel. We then sell these cards to you at their face value. You, in turn, use the cards in place of cash, check or credit cards to make purchases at the stores. 


Example: Scrip buys $100 worth of Copps card at a 4% profit, so the $100 card cost Scrip $96. The Scrip program sells that card for face value, $100, and earns $4 rebate. You then use the card to pay for groceries!


How does Scrip support Immanuel?

One-half of the rebate we make on the gift cards is used for various projects at our school, such as buying equipment that enhances our children's educational experience. The other half of the rebate is yours and can be designated by you to one of the approved funds listed on the front of the Scrip Order Form, such as your Immanuel School tuition.


The Scrip year runs July-June, so rebates are accumulated throughout the year and can be credited to your designated fund starting in July of each year.


Where Can You Buy Scrip?

During the week, including summers, Scrip may be purchased in the school office from 8:15-4:15 (Summer hours 8:15-3:45).
