Scrip Fundraising Program

Scrip is fundraising while you shop®. Watch this video to see how it works. Support IMS by purchasing major retailer gift cards. Dozens of retailers, restaurants, and other businesses participate so you’re sure to find your favorite – or the perfect gift! Purchasing gift cards for participating businesses through our Great Lakes Scrip program will earn rebates for Iowa Mennonite School. The rebate amounts vary from 2 – 18% based on the retailer. If current families use the program, half of their rebate will go toward paying their tuition and the other half will go to IMS for administration of the program and for other school needs such as technology, student aid and supplies for the classrooms. If you don’t have a current student but you want to participate in the program, you can choose if you want half of the rebate to go to a particular current IMS family or to the general student aid fund. The other half will go to the school. The program works the best when you use it to pay for everyday purchases such as clothes, restaurants, gas, etc.  instead of just thinking of it as a special occasion purchase. Please contact Candi Schmieder at IMS with any questions. 319-656-2073 or cschmieder@iowamennonite.org and thanks for using the program!
