Scrip Fundraising

What is Scrip Fundraising? It's fundraising while you shop! It is a program that makes it possible for members to purchase gift cards for America's most popular retailers through Great Lakes Scrip Center and use them for everyday purchases. MCH&GS earns money with each gift card purchased.

Go to and check it out. There are over 700 options including local retailers as well as throughout the country. This gives out of area members of MCH&GS can take advantage of this way of supporting MCH&GS while spending money you would spend on your family anyway.


Contact Lisa Tate, MCH&GS Scrip Coordinator, phone 217-358-6878 (after 2 pm CST Monday through Friday) or by email (preferred method) at:

She can answer your questions and/or give you the Organizational Code that you will use to sign up.

Please give serious thought to joining this program.

Enrollment is free and fast, so you can get your Scrip Account open and starting rebates for MCH&GS in no time!

Remember Scrip is just purchasing gift cards through MCH&GS which give us a rebate from each card purchased.
