What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a vendor rebate program used by schools, sport clubs, churches and other non-profit organizations to raise money using merchant certificates. SCRIP offers your family the opportunity to purchase gift cards for things you use every day like gas, clothing, groceries and dining. Retailers that participate in the SCRIP program reward your loyalty to their stores by providing a rebate to your organization per their defined agreement.
There is a detailed user guide available that provided detailed instructions on using the site (Family User Guide: link).

Who can buy SCRIP?
All EP Fastpitch families are welcome to purchase SCRIP. Please don't be offended if we call to verify your identity. SCRIP programs are subject to fraud and we need to be careful.
Is there a cost to participate?
No. There are absolutely no costs to participate. Participation in the SCRIP program is completely voluntary and simply requires preplanning to purchase the gift cards you need.

- Start at this webpage to enroll: link.
- Enter EP Fastpitch’s enrollment code: 98C2942955836
- Create a username and add profile information.
- All payments must be made through Great Lakes Scrip Center's PrestoPay feature. The PrestoPay registration process is a multi-step process that takes 2-3 days to complete, so be sure to get registered several days before you wish to participate.
PrestoPay setup must be fully completed before placing an order. If the PrestoPay option is not available to them at the time they are placing their order, they need to cancel out and wait. Any orders placed before PrestoPay setup is complete will be cancelled as there is no way to change the payment type after the order is placed.
A short YouTubevideo about PrestoPay can be viewed here.
- Upon enrollment, EP Fastpitch requires that each scrip account or card issued have a completed Scrip Program Agreement (download here) and Program Pick-Up Waiver Form (download here) on file.
If you have enrollment questions or have completed Scrip Program Agreement and PickUp Waiver forms ready, they may be submitted via email to the fundraising coordinator at
. Failure to submit these documents will result in exclusion from the scrip program.

What if my order is returned due to insufficient funds?
A $30 charge will be assessed to any order that is returned due to insufficient funds. This fee is in addition to any fee your bank may charge.

What are the delivery options for my order?
We have a few options for pickup and delivery of Scrip physical cards. If you wish to have someone other than yourself transport your SCRIP order, you must specify your agent on the Program Pickup Waiver Form. If you deem it to be your child, you will need to evaluate if your child is responsible enough to carry your order. The EP Fastpitch cannot be responsible for SCRIP orders once they have been given to your designated individual.
What if the gift cards get lost?
