Scrip Fundraising Program


Christ Lutheran School has used the Scrip Fundraising Program for 10 years to help fund our school PTO events and also help fund some of the technology purchased for our school. “Scrip” is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift cards with national and local retailers.  They are the same gift cards that you buy at the store.  Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Land’s End, The Gap, iTunes, Amazon, Chipotle, Subway, Starbucks and many, many others.


 The way it works is that you place your orders for gift cards online at https://www.shopwithscrip.comOur scrip coordinator will release all family orders on the 1st and the 15th of each month. Any e-cards ordered are available right away via your account but physical gift cards are then sent via FedEx to our school and distributed to families that week. If you haven’t ordered with scrip in the past please complete the following two steps.

 Step 1:  Register a Shop with Scrip Account: in an online ordering system that CLS uses to gather family scrip orders. This option is easy, convenient, and you can place your scrip order anywhere, anytime.

How to Register: Go to scrip website, select ‘Register’ button in top right corner, and click ‘Join a Scrip Program’, enter the Enrollment code then click register to create your account. Contact Becky Koenings for the CLS enrollment code at

 Step 2: Add your PrestoPay Information Enroll in PrestoPay, the online payment method offered by, and pay for your orders with the electronic funds transfer system. It’s easy and secure, and it allows you to skip the hassle of dropping off cash or checks at school.

How to Enroll:

  1. Click on the PrestoPay link on your Dashboard.
  2. Enter your bank account and account holder information.
  3. Within 2-3 business days, scrip will deposit two small amounts in your bank account from Great Lakes Scrip Center. Record those amounts when you see them.
  4. Sign onto your scrip account, enter these amounts in your PrestoPay registration to verify the account, and choose a PIN number to use for online payment.
  5. Once you complete the verification, you will see the approval code on that page. Provide that to your organization coordinator to approve you, and once approved by the coordinator, PrestoPay will be available as a payment option at checkout.
