Scrip Program for Dharma School
The Scrip Program is an important funding source for our Dharma School. It helps pay for teaching supplies and teacher conferences. Please consider using it to support our Dharma School and its activities.
How Does It Work?
Non-profits like ourselves, use Great Lakes Scrip. We have been using this company for approximately five years. Gift cards are sold in various denominations from $10 to $100 through the company. The Dharma School receives an average of a 5% discount on the purchases made at our temple. Currently, there are several hundred companies that participate in the program. Please view the vendor list. We also sell Marukai cards.
How Can I Purchase Cards?
We have some cards from our more popular vendors in stock. If not, they may be purchased from the vendor list. Orders placed by Tuesday will be ready for pick up the following Sunday from Cheryl in the Quad during Sunday service or in the church office at other times.
How Can I Pay for the Cards?
We prefer that you pay for the cards with a personal check, but we also accept cash. Sorry, we do not accept credit cards.
Whom Do I Contact If I Have Questions?
Please email or phone Cheryl with any questions about the program.Cheryl Higashi Email: email@example.com Phone: (562) 926-9727 Cell: (562) 857-2926
