SCRIP is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, SCRIP is debit/gift certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our SCRIP program including JCPenney, Fleet Farm, The Gap, Kwik Trip, Olive Garden, Outback, Red Lobster and many, many others. We have local businesses participating such as: Home Sweet Home, and Kwik Trip.
You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple -- SCRIP participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to BPA at a discount. People like you buy the certificates for full face value, then redeem them for full face value, and BPA keeps the % given by each store. SCRIP is exciting, because everybody wins:
SCRIP can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.
