Description: Scrip offers non-profit organizations the opportunity to raise funds without asking anyone to spend a penny more than they already do.
The NSC currently serves private, religious and public schools, religious organizations, service organizations, sports and athletic clubs, charities and childcare centers.
Instead of asking people to spend additional money on items they may not want or need, scrip enables people to help your fundraising efforts while they make their normal purchases. Scrip is merely “substitute money.”
Scrip, in the form of gift certificates from local and national merchants, is used just like cash in their stores. When these certificates are purchased in advance of shopping, your organization earns a percentage of every purchase made with scrip.
These local and national merchants contribute 2 to 25 percent of everything purchased with scrip to your organization.
NSC also has an affiliate credit card program via MBNA where 1% of all purchases made on the cards is rebated to your organization.
In addition, several hundred merchants also have programs in place that pay your group an additional percentage on purchases made with them through these credit cards.
Product Lines: Credit Cards, Gift Certificates, Scrip
Notes: In business since 1988 as a non-profit organization dedicated to helping other non-profit groups raise money. This concept is extremely popular in California and parts of the Midwest.
