Troop 78 Fundraising Program

Troop 78 has the answer to your shopping needs…..the Scrip Program! 

For the hard-to-buy-for people on your shopping list: teachers, bus driver, coaches, scout leaders, and others: Scrip is the answer. 

These cards make great Holiday gifts or to use all year long for your own family purchases or as donations to community non-profit organizations to help the needy.  

Ordering gift cards through the Scrip Program is easy.

A Message From Scrip Program Coordinators Ted and Diane Dinsmore 

Hi Troop 78 Scouts and Parents, 

For those of you that do not know what Scrip is, it is a fund raising program we use at Troop 78 where you purchase gift cards through the troop and the troop and the Scout get a return for the sale of the card. There are several hundred different retailers. You buy them at face value and we get a percentage back.  For example, at the ACME, if you purchase a $100 gift card there is a 4% cash return to the Troop. The troop gets 2% and the other 2% goes into the scout’s account. 

Scrip is a relatively simple fundraiser, it just requires some planning ahead on your part, but the reward for the troop and the scouts is tremendous and really adds up!

Along with this letter is a list of some of the retailers available, the card amounts, and the percentage of return. You can also look up additional vendors on the Scrip website, Great Lakes Scrip,

If you are interested in making a Scrip purchase, please fill out the order form and turn it in at the Troop Meeting on Friday December 1st, 2017 and we will have the cards returned to you by December 15th, 2017. Checks are made payable to:
Friends of Troop 78. 

In the meantime, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to answer your questions. 

Ted and Diane Dinsmore
